Family Bible Camp

So this week is Family Bible Camp and Bible Conference. Let me say I'm enjoying it more than other weeks. I think this is because:

1. My husband has less to do this week so I'm able to spend more time with him.
2. The evening speaker is very good and each night is new material - not the same old recycled message for regular camp weeks.
And 3. I am reconnecting with some old friends that I haven't seen in years - it's very exciting to see who will show up each night.

My friend, Melanie is coming to visit me this weekend. I'm very excited - it will be just like old times with us starting these projects we'll never finish (let me re-phrase that: Me starting projects I will never finish and she'll finish hers because she's good about that) and watching crazy 80's movies that we know all the words to but like to laugh at all the same.

My husband texted me this afternoon saying that a fight had broke out in the cafeteria at camp. I did not expect this to happen during Bible Conference, but then again people are people. I wonder what it was about - will have to get the details when I see him tonight. Speaking of which, it is about time for me to leave - Yay!!

Life at Camp is not all it's cracked up to be, but that was to be expected

Ok, I know it's been forever since I last posted and I'm sorry for that, but... life happens. So my husband and I have been staying at Camp Findley for the summer while he's working there. It is as expected, bugs, lousy food whining kids. But it'll all be over soon, so I'm trying not to complain.

I have got my tv set up there, so that makes life a little more bearable. Last night I started watching the PBS series Manor House. As with all the others I've seen (1900 House, Colonial House, Frontier House and Regency House Party) I again wonder what these people thought they were getting themselves into. The girl who signed up to be scullery maid (which I'm under the impression is the lowest of the the low in the servant world) lasted only 2 days and then ran screaming for her mommy with skirt-tails flying. Ok, that wasn't exactly how it happened, but close.

As my friend Wendy says - these people just probably want to be on TV. And then when they can't hack it, go home crying - or in the case of Frontier house - stay on and whine to the camera. I just want to yell at them, get a life!! What did you think it was gonna be like, life was tough back then.

Anyway, on to another topic, I'm excited because my friend Stephanie and her family are coming up here from Charlotte to visit for awhile. Can't wait to see how big my little godson has gotten! And then next weekend, Melanie is coming to visit for a knitting weekend!! Yay!!
