photo 1. Welcome to CAMP! Camp began for us on Father's Day. Our first batch of campers arrived last Sunday and left on Friday, then we had a Ladies Camp event over the weekend, and our second busload of campers arrived last night. So, we're on week 2 already and getting into the swing of things.
photo 2. There are so many people here. We're having to really brainstorm to figure out how to fit everyone. It's a really exciting problem to have! Praise the Lord that Camp Shetek is bursting at the seams each summer. :)
photo 3. Grant hanging out with his fellow Maintenance Men. I'm so thankful that he gets to work with such awesome friends here- and the fact that he has been able to get back to work at all! His eye is doing much, much better, praise the Lord! And thank you for praying! Although we are still having to wait to find out about any permanent damage. It does look like a cataract has formed so his vision is not normal right now, and his pupil is still very dilated. Time will tell what action we'll need to take, if any, to fix things up.
photo 4. Lake Shetek, where the sky is always more blue than the water. (we all joke about how green the water is here) We haven't been out swimming or on the jet ski yet, but it's only June.
photo 5. On June 16, Hadley turned two!!! Can you believe that?!
On to finally telling you a bit about our vacation in Washington DC...
We loved it!! The sun was out, it was like 90 degrees, the sights were amazing, and Hadley did awesome. We walked miles and miles and rode hundreds of escalators and grabbed good seats on the metro because we always had a stroller. It was great. My top 5 favorite things were:
1. Arlington Cemetery
2. The Holocaust Museum
3. Mount Vernon
4. Ford's Theater
5. The Archives
For food, my favorite stop was a slice of pepperoni with a root beer at We, The Pizza on Capitol Hill and homemade pickles from a stand at the Eastern Market. :)
And as promised, here's a little recap video of our Washington DC trip!summer on Vimeo.
