Girl's Camp

This was an incredible week of camp, focused on the heart. There was excellent teaching in the morning and evenings by moms and older girls, lots and lots of singing, prayer, early mornings reading our Bibles, group time with everyone sharing what they learned from their devotions, games, exercising, memorizing scripture with relay races and going to the lake. It was wonderful and we're so thankful to the Lord for blessing the week in an amazing way!

Brad came to make sure we sang our theme song, "God Sees the Heart", right.


Julia, our amazing piano player

 
The girls had to memorize a verse every day and then do a relay race. This was the sack race. They hopped to the leaders, said their verse and hopped back to their team. Whatever team finished first won.

Yummy tent food!

After church on Wednesday night we came back to camp and ate tacos in a bag.

They were sooo delicious!
 
We thought it was funny that all the C. girls liked Fritos and all of us Reynolds liked Doritos so we got a picture.

For dessert we had sundaes in a bag. Julia and Jo ate one too many, haha.

They were a hit!
