My Daughter Came Home From Camp, Yay!!

This is a little overdue, but I've been away everyday helping and visiting my mom who recently had back surgery. She's doing really well. Thanks to those who are praying for my mom and who prayed for my daughter.

It turns out that my daughter had a great time and wants to go back to camp next year. I was hoping this would be the result of every one's prayers.

If you read the post from August 1, 2009 you would see that my daughter was not too excited about going to camp and pleaded with me to take her home. It was difficult to leave her, but I did.

That's H in the light blue t-shirt with the black square on it heading for me. I'd say she's almost running. She missed me!

Here's H with her friends from church and from her cabin. C is on the left and JM is on the right.

I just thought this was precious. JM made a friend at camp and they said they were twins and that lot's of people asked them if they were.

Here's my friend DH with her oldest daughter D after they shared a big hug. D is a hard hugger. She hugs so hard it hurts.

Here's DH with both daughters after camp.

Next we had to get all of their stuff and carry it to the van. We had three men help us bring the girls, but it was just us girls carrying all their stuff now. Next year I recommend bags with wheels on them.

Here's the three youngest crammed in the van with stuff all around them.

Of course they were hungry so we stopped to get some lunch before we drove home.

DH and D eating their lunch and enjoying their time back together.

I didn't have anyone take pictures of me and H. I don't know what I was thinking. So H has been home four days and all of her laundry is clean and we're getting ready to get some clothes for school. She did enjoy camp and her team, blue, won first prize, the gold medal, for the most points accumulated for various things they accomplished during the week.

Sometimes we have to make hard choices for our kids and hope that things will go well. This time they did. Thank the Lord for His intervention again!!


  1. Looooove the pics :)

  2. I love camp!!!

    thanks for your sweet comment.

    hope mom is still on the mend! God bless!

  3. GOD BLESS YOU for standing firm in your decision to do what was best for your daughter. It is tough being a mom.
    Blessings and prayers, andrea

  4. That is wonderful! I am so glad that she had a great time and wants to go back. You are right! Sometimes we have to make hard choices for our kids and hope and pray that all turns out for the best. You did good mom!

  5. Oh those pictures and this post bring back so many awesome camp memories for me. I used to go when I was a kid and then when I was a teen I became a camp counselor. I loved it. Maybe H will do the same.

  6. Oh my! It would have been so hard to leave my daughter if she was pleading for me to take her home. Waaaaaaaaaaaaa! I'm glad it all worked out.

    Thanks for your comment on my post. I'm sorry you're living a little bit of my life with your Mom right now. I pray she will feel better soon.


  7. Oh, I remember the days of camp, for myself and for my girls. They always loved it. I'm glad your daughter had a good time.

    I let Barbara know about blogger shutting you down when you wanted to comment on her blog. Hopefully that will be corrected soon.

  8. Great, hope you day is blessed, and all stays cool this summer, whewwwwwwww it is hot here in Georgia..Hugs

  9. So glad she had a great time! And going back next year woohoo!
