Here it is, after Labor Day and I still haven't blogged about Family Camp! This year Tertia and I had two camps almost back to back. Last time I talked about Young Life Capernaum camp in Virginia. That was "glamping." But our church's annual Family Camp is in just as beautiful a location, just... slightly more rustic. Here is Mt. Hood through the dirty car windshield on our way.
But I did catch the unfortunate sinking of the Purple team's canoe after they had to paddle out again to get a fresh banana. All the teams do this after all the other events are finished. You wouldn't want your team leader having to eat the mushy banana after all those events, would you? They have to make it back to the flagpole, the team leader eats the banana and the first one to whistle afterwards wins the glory for his/her team. But, sometimes one canoe sinks, sometimes they all do, on either the outward or the homeward leg.
That's it for pictures. We did all the usual hallmarks of Family Camp though; the waterslide, the swimming and boating, staying up late to play board games and eat cookies, listening to edifying speakers, and celebrating it all in the talent show.
Oh yes, here are a few pictures from going out to Virginia and back, taken from the airplane by Mt. Shasta and on the return, out of San Francisco.
Sorry I didn't share those along with the Capernaum Camp post. It's an ironic thing how, when I have an abundance of bloggable material, I tend to lack the time/energy to blog!
Speaking of which, posts soon to follow (I hope) on projects finished during August and September, and general updates.
