|We used a phrase from Campbell when she was 3: "Nana and Pawpaw's - where the answer is always YES"|
They were wired for this picture and right afterward had our snowball fight with our indoor snow balls. It was wild and crazy!!!
We did our usual family sharing of passing around stomach virus when we get together -- T & I had the bug Monday / Tuesday to launch it.
Session 1 of Camp N / P started at noon on Tuesday as Marshall and Katie got a chance to get away on Tuesday and Wednesday nights (the first time to leave their kiddos overnight EVER). They missed the kids so much they hurried back on Thursday morning.
Clara and Charlie seemed to feel right at home like they had always been here and we had ourselves a ball! Reading books, watching Clara's favorite videos, snuggling with Charlie and singing with Clara.
The sweetest part of the whole week was hearing the four older ones pray at mealtime - Clara starting with the Lords Prayer - placing her elbows on the table and doing a big hand clasp- Jack singing "God our Father" Sydney filling in the Lords Prayer and Campbell praying for her heart.
Session 2 of Camp Nana Pawpaw started on Saturday at noon and lasted until late Monday afternoon.
With plenty of time outdoors on Saturday -- cold and rainy weather kept us inside Sunday and Monday. We had to create things to do
Opening their Mommy Daddy gifts each day -- this one was a messy one -- digging for a "fossil"
We had lots of rain and cold so we fought cabin fever with:
|Creating a costume for the queen|
|Taco Bell for the lunch bunch|
|A Field Trip to TCC to see where Pawpaw teaches|
wrapping it up on Monday afternoon --
Jack Tucker Good - all tuckered-out!!!
|Pawpaw is by far -- his favorite buddy!|
(Our kids had us do this pose! - though I will admit -- tonight we're tired! -- but feeling so blessed by one GREAT week with our five Grands)
