Camping Trip

Every summer we take the kids camping.
We go on a Friday afternoon and return Sunday afternoon.
We go to a place where there are no bathrooms
and no running water.
The kids sleep under the stars,
go on a long hike,
jump off a rock into a creek,
roast marshmallows,
and sing praise songs around a campfire.
It is their time to be away from the neighborhood
and just be kids.

Thank you to those of you who have given
to make these trips possible over the years.
