4th Annual Homeschool Family Camp

The 4th Annual Homeschool Family Camp has come and gone, leaving us with new friends, renewed vision for family, and a host of wonderful memories!
The theme verses for camp this year were 1 Corinthians 16:13-15, "Watch ye, stand fast in the faith, quit you like men, be strong. Let all your things be done with charity. I beseech you, brethren, (ye know the household of Stephenas, that it is the firstfruits of Achaia, and that they have addicted themselves to the ministry of the saints.)"
Throughout the evening sessions & mother/daughter & father/son time, we discussed "how to watch and stand fast in the faith", the meaning of true, unselfish love, and what it means to be "addicted to ministry". 
 We were so blessed as we watched the Lord bring these 17 households together to camp.
What a rich, spirit-filled week it was!

(we figured since the guys got to do potato guns....the girls should get something special, too!:))
The youngest camp attendee this year was just 2 weeks old. Lillian was so precious, and I held her every chance I got!

::Yummy Food::
Village Creek Camp has an amazing cook who has cooked for our group all 4 years we've done the camp there. Everyone was VERY well-fed and the meals were, as always, a huge hit, especially for all those teenage guys!
