For the past 4 years Josh has been taking the students on a fall retreat and I have been able to go on the last 3 (thanks Grams and Nana!). This weekend is easily one of the best events of the year every year. There are so many things that make it great. It is a weekend away from the realities of everyday life. Instead we spend the weekend playing outside, going canoeing, enjoying amazing weather, making smores on a bonfire, looking at a million stars on a hayride and spending time growing closer to God. No one even notices that we spend 2 nights "sleeping" on bunk beds or having to walk to the bathroom. We scheduled the retreat a little earlier this year but still had good weather. It was HOT the first night but then it rained and cooled it down for the next day and night.
This year we had almost 40 kids go plus 9 adults! It was a great group!
I love these kids!! So blessed to get to be part of their lives!
