On Saturday we played with lights. Mommy took long exposure pictures while I stood still and Andrea and Megan traced me with glow sticks and a flashlight. We had fun. I hope to do again soon.

  • Colored tissue paper
  • Some Con-Tact paper
  • Wax paper*
  • Thick Black construction paper
  • Scissors and X-Acto knife
  • Glue**

How to make one.

  1. Find a Nativity picture you like and print it.
  2. Trace it onto the Black construction paper
  3. Use the X-Acto knife (put cardboard under the black construction paper) to cut out around the people and the stable.
  4. Stick the Nativity on the Con-Tact paper
  5. Cut the tissue paper into little pieces
  6. Stick the colored tissue paper onto the Con-Tact Nativity on just the Con-Tact paper
  7. Glue** the wax paper* onto the back of the Nativity

*Or you cold use more Con-Tact paper.

**If you use more Con-Tact paper you do not need glue.

First day of Camp! Monday, July 11, 2016

Last week we went to Lake Ann Camp! Mark, Andrea, Audrey, and I woke up at about 5:00 in the morning, to get ready to get in the car so Daddy could  drive us to camp. In the car we listened to Prince Caspian by C.S. Lewis.

At about ten we got to Lake Ann. It was not crowded yet. When the rest of the campers got there we went to our cabin. After we got settled in our cabin, we put our money in the red canoe, then went and played games. One was soccer with hands, but you can’t grab the ball.

The next game was called “Poop Deck”. There were three decks, the first one you started on was called the Poop Deck, the next deck was the Main Deck, and the last deck was the Quarter Deck. To play, the leader will say a deck’s name and you have to go to that deck, if you go on the wrong deck you go out of the game.

Then we played Atomic Bomb, our team was U.S.A and the other team was Russia, Each team get small balls, and there is a big blue Atomic Bomb in the middle of the Sea. You can not go into the Sea. If you do you drown. You are trying to get the big blue Atomic Bomb on the other teams side, if you do you get a point. To get the big blue Atomic Bomb on the other teams side you hit it with your balls. You win if you get three points.

The last game we played was the boys and the girls split into teams and one team cleans up trash and the other goes into a singe file line, one person runs around a cone then goes back and the next person does it. When the other team finishes picking up trash every one freezes if you got all the trash you are the running team. To win you get the most points, points are every person that ran around the cone.

Then we had lunch which was pizza, then had a swim test. Once we were done with the swim test (I did not take it since I have not learned how to swim yet) we had archery then free time, then we had dinner, then more games, then chapel which we were learning about Abiding in God’s love. Then we had free time then bed time.

I had a fun first day of Camp!
