A highlight of our summer every year is RiverRanch. This year, it was even sweeter cause we got to see so many students whom we miss dearly and spend a whole week with them!!
We found this mechanical Big Foot on the side of the road on our way there!
This was the FIRST year in SEVEN that it has rained on our canoeing day. Sam was less than thrilled it looks like…
Beckham wasn’t pumped either!
Rain didn’t put a damper on playing wiffle ball. On the river. Off a bridge. This is Brian pitching and Sam hitting, both while jumping!
Hannah and Annie, canoe buds. It stopped raining too!
There was, as always, turtle catching. This is the mean kind of turtle, softshell.
Turtle hunting discipleship:
Beckham caught a quarter-sized turtle all by himself! This little guy was adorable!
Lunch break! It’s always sandwiches, chips and Famous Amos cookies. It’s the best lunch ever cause you are famished.
Brian and Sam sinking a canoe. On accident.
Trying to win back their “man cards”
Sharpie tattoos are always fun!
Then Becks drew Brian a mustache too!
Me and Hannah’s selfie!
On Wednesday we have land day. No canoeing, just games at camp. We have a super (non) competitive 2v2 basketball tourney. There’s always lots of cheating. That’s what makes it fun for those of us who don’t know how to play. Once the cheater teams get knocked out, the players who really know how to play get to enjoy the real game!
Is this not the coolest picture of the coolest of girls??
Watching the games!
Beckham spends a lot of the week making things with duct tape. Such as this back pack…
Another great picture. It’s Rico doing the most epic belly flop ever!
The belly flop was the ending to the “Intern’s Relay Race” which is always so fun! It culminates with a huge shaving cream war!
Brookie representing MPC!
Kids enjoying the turtles that made it back!
Morgan and Chris’s interpretive dance!
We’ve acquired quite the hodge podge of supplies over the years. We get out our “camp bins” twice a year (once for each camp, HS and Jr High), and then load them up again for 11 months. Somehow little boy undies made it into a bin…
Annual traditional RiverRanch group picture!
Our last night there is a dance party! Here’s the boys ready to dance and sing!
