On December 27th, we made our annual pilgrimage to Camp Challenge - a Christian family camp that we attend every year. This year, camp was at a beautiful, leafy new venue south of Sydney, which seemed to imbue the camp with an added dose of energy and excitement. We had a wonderful time - spiritually refreshed, encouraged, relaxed, filled up with good conversation, laughter, and memorable moments.
It was five days of faith, family, friends and fun.... oh yeah - and food which I do not have to plan, buy, prepare or cook. Can I even explain how delightful it is to have three meals, three snacks, one dessert and drinks every day for my family with no forethought from me? It's awesome ;) Love strolling into the dining room each day to peruse what's on the chalkboard menu - and it was alllll so delicious!
*cough cough* enough about the food, huh?! ;)
|We shared a two bedroom cottage with our dear friends, the W* family. Our four cherubs shared bedtime stories and|
many, many giggles and adventures! They are Camp Challenge pros, having attended together for the past four years :)
|These two Dads... they are some of the very best, I gotta say! How blessed these kids are to have such devoted fathers.|
|Warming up with a little singing in the Preschool daily bible class! Lots of stories, singing, craft and activities for|
our busy little people from such loving, devoted teachers.
|Gathering for the daily 'Prayer and Praise' time - always so encouraging, hearing everyone raising the roof in song!|
|Face stuffin' with muffins!|
|Graham was playing with my camera and snapped a shot of Miles and I. Well, can't pass up a rare shot like that :)|

|This sweet girl, Georgia was such a treasure, the kids simply adored her. Especially when she braided Lily's hair - and mine too!|
