Hey guys! I took a few days off to get moved in and settled down in our new home at camp. Grant, Hadley, and I are living in a brand spanking new (like the carpet was just laid days ago) staff housing apartment. We are so blessed! Everything around me is so beautiful and wide open- including the amazing view of the lake from our front window. Look at what I get to see every morning!
This week it feels like we are on the diving board, poised over the summer season ahead of us, and I am definitely liking the view. There's no better place in the calendar than at the very beginnings of summer! I feel really lucky to be in the small circle of people currently at camp, kicking off the summer in our own set-apart world. I like life together. I like baby cousins and their nap times. I like watching my husband work. He is absolutely in his element here. I've been enjoying my mother-in-law's good cooking, seeing my husband joke around with his guy friends, a new schedule, and living next door to a couple sisters-in-law. And Hadley? that almost-one-year-old girl is totally into this camp thing. I wasn't sure how the new surroundings would affect her, but she's sleeping and playing harder than ever. Not to mention loving having all of her new friends around.
Hey Camp Shetek alumni, you know it's officially camp season when you see this: the maintenance men, finishing the day with a dip in the lake.
