Camp Fun

Anna Clare went to summer camp for the first time this year. It's a Christian camp a little over an hour away and the same camp I went to several times 28 years ago! In fact, we when we dropped her off, I recognized the director from when I was a camper. He told me he's been there since 1977.
Very rustic but at least the cabins are air conditioned now.  They weren't when I was there!
We dropped her off on Monday morning and picked her up on Saturday. She's never been away from home that long so I had no idea how it was going to go. Thankfully her friend Olivia went too and was in the same cabin, along with some other girls she knew from school.

She had a blast. She loved it and cannot wait to go back next year. We got this letter from her on Wednesday...
Olivia got sick on Thursday and had to go home. I kept waiting for a phone call saying Anna Clare was homesick and ready to come home too, but we never heard a word :)
We loved hearing her talk non-stop about her week all the way home on Saturday.
Proud of my big girl!
