I took my nine year old up to Bible camp yesterday. He's very excited. It's the first year he is old enough to stay the entire week. He's gone to science camp up there before but that is just over one night. So getting to stay the whole week is a real treat. Along with the preaching services, they have tons of great activities, including horseback riding, rappelling down a huge rock cliff, and a zip line. He was nervous but excited.
This was the plant I was really hoping to find. It's called elephant's head (for obvious reasons). I didn't find any. I grabbed this photo from online.
Speaking of being snowed in, I found this book at the library - Snowed In by Barbara M. Lucas - and it has become my new favorite. :)
