off they go

… to camp.

Monday through Thursday.

And, if you can’t tell, they were over the top excited about it.

In fact, it was the most often discussed subject for weeks leading up to “go time”.


Mama’s taking it a little harder.

I know they’ll have a great time. I know they’ll learn a lot about Jesus.

It’s just not easy to let them go an hour away. Overnight.

An hour away.



Is it Thursday yet?



  1. I totally understand! We dropped my Marin off Sunday evening and will get her noon on FRIDAY!!! It was her first time at church camp. And to be honest……I don’t like it. lol I miss my baby girl.

  2. Delaine Spruill says:

    They are just too cute, Stephanie! I know what you mean about the going away stuff. I haven’t let my 13 venture off very far yet.

  3. Look at those smiles! Hope they have a blast!

  4. Patricia/NYC says:

    You are a braver momma than I am!! I just can’t do it.
    They are really growing up! Just beautiful!

  5. Oh sweet girls… getting too big too fast… and probably didn’t even ask permission first to do it!
    Hurry up, Thursday!

  6. I can’t believe how big (and beautiful!) they are getting! I hope their time is an amazing experience!

  7. Not Thursday yet – y’all need to make it one more night! But like my oldest says – “It’s all good – ya know?”

    hugs – aus and co.

  8. Oh, I feel ya!!!! This summer is the first time that so many of my gang have been away more than one night and somewhere OTHER than family. Last summer, it was Argentina for Shaggy. But this summer, it’s camp for Shaggy (as a leader) and LadyBug (as a camper). THEN it was Dr. D and LadyBug for a three day local event. NOW, it’s Dr. D to ALASKA for a church missions trip. It is awesome for them but hard on momma. I feel like I’m stalking the AK team, looking for news on my boy :) And they’ve only been gone since Monday afternoon! :)

  9. “find your wings” song from mark harris describes it the best…..go have an extra chocolate chip cookie because thursday will be here before you know it!

  10. Beautiful girls! What are their ages?

  11. You are such a good mom! They are going to have a great time, and Thursday will come quickly. Side note, where did you get their shirts?
