Our new "camp" dog and our playset

One of the great things about living at camp....we have a playset that is literally "across" the road from our home here. I can look out our window and there it is, and we spend a lot of time there playing, laughing, and having fun. Look at Jonathan's cheeky face. Yep, that's the one we fell in love with when we were sent his referal pics.

Ummm........What???? I'm the cute one around here!!!!

The furry star of the show....Licorice the new camp dog!!! Faster than? Smarter than? OK so she is cute and only 5 1/2 lbs at 2 months old right now. She has grown 2 lbs in 2 weeks!

Here is Joshua trying to run from my picture taking....but I sort of caught him. He is a fast runner!!!
So here is Abigail...swinging with Licorice....breaking in the dog for campers. She will be completely kid proof!!!!

Ok so what do you do with the new "camp" dog? Introduce them to the slide over and over and over and over.......All of our kids took several turns doing it, but Licorice didn't seem to mind.

OK this girl has no fear! I mean honestly at age 4 she rode on a roller coaster at Silver Dollar city in Branson, MO called powder keg- it shoots you off at 60-70 mph. She is crazy, but she has fun. Now if we could just get her to obey and listen....that would be great! OK so I will continue to pray about that part.

Matthew is just so cute!!! Hanging out at our camp playset. I just want to squeeze his cheeks!

Ok so this is our indoor girl- Elizabeth....and since she wasn't outside with the rest of the is a pic of her playing intently with little people, and her doll- Bailey.

So that is what you do for fun as a camp director's kid. Well, and do swimming as much as possible. This is the first year in which our kids have really taken off on this. So I have started proper lessons with them (being that I have been a lifeguard since I was 19...I have a lot of experience).
