Kids' Camp 2011

This is a picture of some of my 3rd - 6th graders. And we're at camp! One of the most favorite things I get to do with my kids. I love being their mama for a couple of days of swimming, eating, swimming, eating, swimming, eating and even a little sleep! I think my favorite part is walking back to the cabin from either the waterfront or the swimming pool. I have the best conversations with the kids! These guys are dear to my heart......I just love 'em, love 'em, love 'em!

PandaMania 2011

One of my biggest feats every summer is Vacation Bible School. Honestly, it is one of the most exhausting things I do! But it is my one gift to my kids every year. They love it so much and there is no way I can look into those precious faces and tell them that we're aren't going to have VBS. Thanks to an incredible group of volunteers, an amazing VBS happened in July again this year - PandaMania! And as soon as I see those smiles and hear all the laughter - I don't even remember all the hours of planning, decorating, learning music, and finding teachers' supplies. I just enjoy the ride.

So, here are some of our pictures from PandaMania.

And this little girl right here? Well, it was her first VBS with JuJu. I think the smile describes it all.
