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!
