Mommy Camp Wednesday

For Mommy Camp today, Momma cut my hair. Then we got a bath because of all the hair!

After awhile, it began to rain a little. We got to play out in it a little bit. We have not had rain for a long long time, so it was fun playing in it.

We made cookies. They were chocolate chip,  M&M cookies. When it (the dough) was almost all finished I put on one or three M&M’s on them to make them look pretty. We took them to church for dinner.

When the cookies were baked, we let them cool, we took a nap so we could stay up late. Then we watched a movie (cartoon).  Around the second one we ate one (a cookie). They were good!

We had a church meeting. First we had a church dinner. Mommy called it a potluck. We took macaroni and cheese and cookies. Then we had a prayer meeting. I liked it.

We came home and took a walk for a little bit. I rode my tricycle.  When Megan fell down we turned around and came home. Then we catched a lightening bug, almost catched two, but could not catch any more. Then we read Bible stories OUTSIDE! Before bed, Momma read part of a book to me. Then I fell asleep 🙂

“Mommy Camp”

Because I am counselor, activity director, cook, nurse and part of the clean up crew at “Mommy Camp” this week, Adrian will be the special guest writer most of the week.

When the big kids went to Lake Ann Camp, Megan and me got to go to “Mommy Camp”.  It is a special camp because it is made for little kids and big kids who are not big enough to go to Lake Ann.  We get to finger paint, play games, use chalk, play in the sprinkler, learn how to cook eggs and biscuits and sausage.

Last night we watched a movie and Mommy read a story to me in bed.  Mommy camp is fun.  It is probably more fun than Lake Ann.  (Momma said at least for me!)

Fun at the Restaurant Store

Today’s guest writer is Adrian.  Enjoy!

We went to Lunkers.  Grandpa took us there with Grandma and Great Grandma. Megan screamed and cried all the way there!

Lunkers is a fish restaurant in Edwardsburg, Michigan. I had pretzel bread with a buffalo burger and a pickle salad and some chips.  Momma had the same thing but with an Elk burger (mine was better!). Megan had chicken wings and a little salad. The food was good.

Seeing the fish was better. The fish were in tanks around the sides of the restaurant. There were turtles, frogs, fish with no names and iguanas. They were real live! My favorite fish was the Lion Fish. It was in a big tank with lots and lots of fish in the middle of the restaurant.

Sometimes the frogs could stay still in the middle of the water without going down. After we saw the fish, iguanas, turtles and frogs (Momma wondered if that is where they got their frog legs from) we went into the restaurant store. We saw a HUGE fish coming out of the wall! Lots of bricks were coming down! Then we found “the great big moose, who’s name was Fred”, a bear and a mountain lion!  We also saw Peter Rabbit at the other end of the restaurant.

Megan was quiet on the way home. ‘Cause she was sleeping! (She was good eating and shopping though).  Thank you Grandpa!  I liked the “rain forest restaurant”, even though there was no tigers or lions or Thunder!”

P.S.  Momma said that I needed to let you know that Megan was afraid of Fred, until we told her the mooses name was Fred, and He liked to drink his juice in bed.  He was a great big moose, who liked to drink a lot of juice!  Then she liked him a lot!


This morning, all of the kids were up by 5:15.  The three oldest ones were heading up to Lake Ann for a week of camp! Lake Ann is a camp that teaches the Bible and provides many fun activities.

This will be Audrey’s first time at camp. Andrea loved it last year and is so excited about being able to go again.  Mark has been to a few camps, but I think he likes Lake Ann the best.

This will be the first time that they are taken to camp and then “dropped off”.  Allan is going to be helping on a project, and then he is coming home.

Please pray for the kids this week!  I am praying that they are open to what they hear and that they choose to grow because of something they learned.

Morning at the Park

The kids and I have been trying to take walks while the weather is cool.  Yesterday, I asked Allan to drop us off so we could take a walk someplace different.

After rolling down a hill, and running around a track, we crossed a foot bridge to play for awhile at the middle school playground.  It is a small playground and the older kids are almost too tall for everything, but we had a lot of fun.

Heading home, we threw sticks in the water and played “Pooh Sticks” awhile.  Then the kids explored under the bridge and enjoyed the water.   We looked for caterpillars–did not find any 🙁 –and managed to walk the two plus miles with stops, in just under 50 minutes.  It was a nice morning!
