Oh my goodness, Monday morning feels like forever ago.
First I have to say a HUGE THANK YOU for all your prayers--for camp and for yesterday morning's MOPS meeting. I could totally tell you were praying and can't tell you how much I appreciated it.
I didn't sleep much. Two hours on Friday night and three hours on Saturday night. But I didn't freak out and panic about not sleeping, so it was okay. The girls had a ball and were great.
Highlights of the weekend?
I braided lots of heads of hair after I did Audrey and Emma on Saturday morning--"Mrs. Heim, will you braid my hair too?" Lots and lots of zigzag parts, French braids, and some fishtails thrown in for good measure. I like to do hair so it was fun. And a chance to talk to girls one on one.
I met some new moms and loved seeing moms meet and connect with each other.
I mattress surfed. (We stack those slippy-slidey mattresses up high, run down the hall as fast as we can, and launch ourselves on top, sliding down the length of the big room. Fun!)
I built the best campfire ever. Really. I wish I'd taken a picture!
I had a discussion with a six-year-old about the fact that we do not become angels when we go to heaven. And that the Bible is not "just a bunch of old Bible stories," but that it all really happened and is the Word of God.
We were crafty--and earned the Art to Wear try it. Face painting, sock decorating, pillow cases, and more.
Bedtime prayers. We sit around in our sleeping bags and share requests and pray together before lights out. I love hearing what's on little girls' hearts.
Farm tour. Petting and feeding animals. Always a hit with the girls.
The scenery. The camp we go to is just plain beautiful! (Sorry for the small photos--I borrowed them from one of the mom's Facebook albums!)
Okay, gotta go eat some breakfast. More later about the MOPS group yesterday!
