Off for a vacation!

It is that time of year again!! We will be heading out today for camp for a couple of weeks. It is only the next town over, so I will be making the 20 minute trip home now and again, but the blog will be taking a vacation, too!
The camp I attend, I have been going to all of my life! 32 years and counting. In fact, my parents have both attended all of their lives, too. It is over 100 years old now, and it is a really amazing place that brings you back in time. There are dozens of old fashioned cottages that people have owned for generations. We have a camper...I like to stay--without the risk of bats and the like getting to me. I am sealed off very nicely in my camper, thank you!! Camp meeting is always a great spiritual renewal for me, as well as a great time to get together with my very large and extensive family that we only see once a year. It is an old fashioned church "camp meeting" that is interdenominational. There is a youth program, a children's program, and church services every night. My cousin who is a SU! demo also attends, and holds workshops throughout the duration of camp.
I am really excited this year, cause I am no longer the snack lady at VBS! Cody is no longer young enough for Vacation Bible School, so I passed the torch on to someone else. No more rice cake lion faces for me!! All kidding aside, serving 75 childred highly involved snacks every morning for a week and a half is very taxing! So I am on my own this year.
I am also having a small surgical procedure next Wednesday, and I would appreciate you keeping me in your thoughts and prayers. See ya round!! --Keri

Your camp sounds so wonderful and special! My husband's family had a cabin at a lake in CA for many, many years.. How neat for both of your families to keep the tradition going. I like the spiritual side, and SU side of your annual trip! What an awesome combo!!!
Prayers to you for your surgery... Lovin' your blog!
