Well, it was time for our third annual Children’s Ministry Leadership Team / Kidology Staff Camping Trip! Starved Rock, Illinois was the destination this time. This week away from cell phone, e-mail and Internet each year is a wonderful break for me! And… it was Luke’s FIRST time camping!
A family at church was nice enough to loan us their RV so that Luke didn’t have to suffer in a hot tent, and with temperatures in the high 80’s and 90’s all week, it was GREAT to have an air-conditioned RV… it also meant we had lots of visitors often as well:
We feared that camping would be rough on the boy, but he seemed to enjoy it alot. Never cried and was sooo easy going. Of course, there were lots of kids and big friends constantly giving him attention and love.
Dad enjoys playing the guitar and leading singing…. here is Luke helpin’ out. One of our camping traditions is that every family puts on a skit on the last night. For our skit, Sara and I were humble farmers until a meteor crashed nearby. (Luke in an orange cooler with a flashlight!) I tried to get him out and was thrown back due to his amazing strength. Sara gets him out ok and we decide to adopt him despite his super powers!
That’s one super kid!
