The older two participated in Public Safety camp this past week. It was a great mix of fire/police/ems and covered everything from the SWAT truck to putting out an airplane fire to carrying a Stokes basket up an embankment. The final day was a mock drunk driving arrest, complete with the jaws of life being used to take the side off of a car to free the passenger. So many great things to take away (and a good bit of swag as well!)
Every day after pickup, we headed to the lunch truck then to the pool for the older boys' lessons. The lunch truck...well, it is my very favorite thing. This year they even raffled off gift cards every Friday. So, in addition to free lunch, we walked away with $60 worth of cards to spend. Sweet.
I'm also grateful that this is the last week of lessons. As the week went on, I saw more of this...
|the two lumps are #4 and #5 ;0)|
We also had a big life lesson this week. #1 will be turning 11 next month and our delightful health insurance carrier saw fit to send her a birthday card.
OK, rant over. I'm off to enjoy the quiet time (daddy day at the pool) and write some lesson plans. This is the last week of camp...an excellent one from the looks of it...they're having SPAM as a snack one day (cue Monty Python). Then, like the rest of the world, down to serious school around here (well, mostly, lol).
In all things, I am so grateful that we have a God who loves us and who has written the laws of truth and goodness on our hearts. I will continue to pray that more people get in touch (and myself more closely in touch) with those truths. It would make everything a whole lot simpler, non?
We are blessed.
