We carpooled after school on Friday with two other moms and daughters. We took a little side trip to Gunder, Iowa to experience a Gunderburger at The Irish Shanti. I couldn't even finish a half-size one. It is an experience.
It was almost dark by the time we arrived at the camp. After checking in and getting our stuff settled, we attended the opening session and had snacks afterwards. Then it was time to calm down three wound-up girls on bunk beds. We were fortunate to be put in a bunkhouse room with just our friends and our own private bathroom. The girls were all about the top bunks. The moms were happy being on the bottom. Emily was excited to journal all about her experience.

|On top of Pulpit Rock|
|It was quite the hike, and she had more energy than me!|
|Tree climbing--with some gutsy perseverance she made it up over 20 feet.|
|"I can't believe I just climbed that high!"|
|Kayaking on the lake|
|How far can you throw a rock?|
|That's a BIG chair!|
|Helping out with praise & worship|
We arrived home Sunday afternoon tired but happy. We're already looking forward to doing it again sometime! Below is the video I made of our weekend.
