WHERE WE WERE THIS LAST WEEK


This last week Hubby and I worked at Breakaway to the Royal Kingdom. This is the annual Day Camp our church creates for 1st through 6th graders. There were over 2000 super charged youngsters attending and over 1000 volunteers helping make this one fabulous camp for everyone. There was even a separate on-campus daycamp for infants through kindergarten. This was for the volunteers' children. Everything was themed around castles and knights.
The picture shows the castle front erected at the entrance to our Celebration Center. Nothing is ever done just halfway here! It was an amazing week and we were thrilled to be a small part of such a big adventure. Hubby worked on security and I helped with snacks for the little guys. We are exhausted but you know, its a good exhaustion. The week was well worth every effort.
Enlarging the photo will let you see the detail more clearly.

The castle wall really sets expectation. If a kid can't have fun there... well they can have fun there.
