We kicked it all off with about fifteen birthday parties - all for Isabella and Elissa's 6th and 4th, respectively. They were mostly small gatherings and there were some squirming fish involved but nothing too weird.
We had a week at Bethany Summer Youth Camp. The little girls went to the morning camp and my big girls went along with me to the overnight, sleeping in tents all week camp. It was a blast and we really felt like God blessed our time there.
Then... we hit the fourth of July and watched fireworks at the Whitten Center right outside of our little town. For a small town show, it was 30 minutes of very decent fireworks so we were pleased.
Then... we headed to Camp Hope (Dahlonega, GA) for a week. It was a great time too. Adam stayed very busy with his role as Co-Activities Director and I was sort of busy and sort of not at times...
now we are back in Clinton and trying to catch our breath. We are on duty and have three cottage girls at the moment plus our little ones. Five kids really isn't a big deal during the summer. We go off Tuesday night and will head to Columbia and then the beach to hang out with the Adam's family :) I mean Adam's family!
