Sorry, blog readers. I was kinda a slacker about camp. We are back at home now and my high of the day was going in to wake up the boys this morning after not seeing them for a week. My heart just melted when they said “Hi Mommy!” about fifty-seven times.
As a way to recap our week in MA, here are some highs and lows of our time at Passport.
HIGH: Serving for 4 days in Lynn MA picking up trash, cleaning churches, painting park benches, playing with local kids, and visiting the elderly
LOW (for Aaron and me): Chasing 7 middle schoolers all over Boston and not getting to do anything that we had planned to do on our afternoon off
HIGH: Eating incredibly yummy food (heavenly clam chowder, swordfish, gelato) at Quincy Market in Boston
LOW: Middle schoolers who are late, forget their Bibles for church and Bible study, lose their wallets every time they get in and out of the van, and find farting and making duck noises the funniest things in existence
HIGH: Seeing a shy student blossom into a talkative and fun-loving girl by the end of the week
LOW: Worrying ourselves sick after searching all over the campus for a student who was missing 45 minutes after curfew
HIGH: Having the student come back tearful and repentant right before we got campus security and the entire Passport staff out to look for our lost sheep
LOW: Being really, really tired
HIGH: Whale watching on Saturday (The whales came RIGHT up to the boat! Amazing!)
LOW: Our LONG drive back to Lynchburg–12+ hours
HIGH: Our long trip totally worth it after witnessing the growth, maturity, and decisions made by the students while at camp. Praise the Lord!!
