Weekend Web Wandering 2019 Vol.6

July is a busy month and the main reason is four letters: C.A.M.P.

Philip directs our church’s Junior Camp (8-14 year olds). He preps all month for the lessons, games, etc. And he recruits other churches to go with us, bring their kids, and bring helpers. This year has been particularly stressful, even though we’ve done this since 2003. (There’s also non-camp related stress for both of us but we can talk about that some other time.)

What do I do? I pray a lot. And then I show up at camp and mother all the third to eighth graders that come. It doesn’t require a lot of prep on my part. (I do pack a huge first aid kit. Did you know Tums are a great cure for “my stomach hurts” – aka: general homesickness?)

OK, I also have to get my younger kids ready for whatever they’re doing while we’re at camp. Sometimes that means bringing them to camp with us and sometimes it means they go to their other grandparents.

And then there’s the packing…

So, while the last few loads of laundry (ha!) are finishing up, I think I have just enough time to share some links with you.
