Summer Adventures: Part 2

August was such a fun month! It started off with a few days at Indian Creek Camp for the yearly minister’s meeting there. The speakers were fantastic. It was wonderful to get to chat with friends I only see a few times a year. There are several pastor’s wives in our conference that are dear to me. The kids got to spend time with some of their best friends. I am always grateful for that.

And the horses… My girls and I love horses and riding the horses at ICC is one of the highlights of our year!



Hannah – thrilled to be at the corral!

Laura riding the new horse – Pilgrim. Here, Jamie is leading her. Laura can hardly wait until next year! She’ll be 7 years old and allowed to lead her own horse and ride on the trail with the rest of us!
This is Hannah riding really well all by herself!

I have more photos of my other girls on the horses, but they were taken on my husband’s camera and I have not downloaded them yet! I’ll have to share those later.

This is a picture of Hannah and Laura with their good friends exploring nature – bugs!

For our Shepherdess Meeting (pastor’s wives meeting) we learned a bit about Photography. I love my camera and can’t wait to be able to afford a super nice (read expensive) camera. I take my camera everywhere and take hundreds of photos every month! For practice we went outside and took some nature shots. Here are some of mine:

Pretty flowers outside of the chapel.

I liked the way the light shone in through the tree leaves.

This is poison ivy. I thought it was a pretty good shot. :)

And last but not least, our pet Fowler’s Toad – aptly named Prince Charming. We let him go a couple of weeks ago. I am glad I got this nice shot of him.

When we got home from ICC, I had two days to prepare for the International Pathfinder Camporee in Osh Kosh, Wisconsin. Actually tho, I took Thursday to “recuperate” so that left me with Friday – which meant I had to take Sunday and finish packing – which meant we didn’t leave for Wisconsin until 12 midnight…. to be continued in Part 3!

    What a wonderful time! We went horsebackriding recently but I didn't have as much fun as you did:)
    It's wonderful you got to fellowship with others!

    PS-I usually have the volume on my computer turned down but every once in a while I don't. Love your music you have on your blog!

    Thank you! I love the frog too. I hope we can find another toad like him. He was great! We had to let him go because we were out of town for too long, but we did take him to ICC with us.

    ICC = Indian Creek Camp which is our church's conference summer camp. (It is also where our conference retreats for women (and others) are held. It's the kind of place that you never want to leave!
