old trusted door we went to camp good news today. the camp i went to a few times with my best friend as a camper. the camp where my husband and i ‘met’ 21 years ago training to teach bible clubs.. the camp that hired me when i courageously sent a letter blindly asking if they would hire me to work in their wilderness camp. i only worked as a counselor there for four summers, but i loved. every. second. of it. it made the wilderness around me less wild and more comfortable. the people i worked with still tug on a tender part of my heart, and the kids who came through each week. whose own tender hearts were pushed beyond physical and spriritual limits. i went up to the wilderness camp today with my son. i felt proud and emotionally strung as i hiked him up the hill to the small camp. opening to door to the pavilion opened a flood gate of memories. foot bridge

wii fun we finally found a wii. although it is kind of disturbing trying to knock out your son.

measuring up measuring up. happy to say he has grown and will not slow down.

P6261346 we acquired two printers trays from our parents and kept one. my mom liked to put crafty little figurines in them and i remember buying her some when i was a kid. i finally put the tray on our wall, but had maybe three things to display in it. since the tray was hanging within reach or our son he thought it would be the perfect place to house his red plastic fire brigade.

monadnock i hiked a mountain today. my tired feet and rickety knees held together long enough to get me to the summit. it felt so empowering to conquer this mountain.
