That evening we had a campfire near our cabin. It was so nice. Campfires are delightful. The Smiths always have fun bon-fires, but I haven't been able to make it to one yet this year. Maybe another one Lori... hint, hint! At our campfire we roasted marshmallows, made s'mores, swatted mosquitoes, took goofy pictures and sang songs. Pat played his old trusty gee-tar while we sang our usual songs, like "Big House" and worship songs. Josiah sang "Wicked Sharp" to Kayla (great song- all about Maine love... hehe) and then George dedicated a song to them entitled "Sippin' Cider." It was slightly shocking, but very funny!
On Friday we had our actual volley ball game, which was lots of fun. I don't remember who won or such like, but I remember doing plenty of falling on the ground (that's me) and laughing. After the big game was done some of us girls played against three of the guys and they had to use their heads and legs and weren't allowed to use their hands. We were. We lost. But it was a rip-roaring good time, despite. (Good for the guys' ego too)
After the volley ball game George invited some of us to a fierce game of Scrabble. He won considerably, but Josiah K, Emily and I didn't do to bad either. It was good for the brain!
In the evening, awards were given out (of the chocolate kind. Yum!) and we were told the winner of the week....... The Den of Knights! Kudos to them! They worked super hard to memorize verses and Sarah was an excellent drill Sargent (I think she was called the Memory verse Nazi)! We VIPs didn't lose by to much. We weren't the very insensitive pilgrims, but tried to be the very illustrious pilgrims (not exactly the word to use, but you know what I mean to say, I hope!). After that we all got out our cameras and viewed a slide show of the week, complete with musical accompaniment!
Camp was such a blessing to our family this year and I pray that it will continue to bless those that attend in the future! God is good!
