It is not just hype when Young Life promises that camp will be "The Best Week of Your Life."
We have travelled by plane, train, mini van, school bus, raft, foot, pony, gondola and jeep.
We have played board games with the gorgeous snow capped peaks of the Rockies outside our window. We fed chipmunks and prairie dogs from our hands.
We laughed and loved and sang and danced and played and prayed. Then we woke up the next morning and did it all again.Now we are home. We are refreshed AND pooped (and drowning in dirty laundry).
It has been an AMAZING week for all five of us.
Last night as we were tucking the children in R said, "I can't wait to be home."
"Yeah," P added, "Home is the best place on Earth."
God has created some stunning places out West, but it was a different kind of beautiful to pull back in my flat, oak lined driveway tonight. It is good to be home.
