I must say that when I was looking into changing school boards (for the 4th time) last year, it was because of this family camp that I choose Wisdom Homeschooling. I was really wanting to bring our family together, instead of dividing. Which is what alot of school boards do. They have so many activities for this age, or that age, or just girls or boys or whatever. Our school board's activities are all family orientated. So, needless to say we were really looking forward to this camp and it didn't disappoint. We had our own 2 bedroom cabin, right across from the washrooms and kitchen and right on the lake. It was located at Moose Lake Bible Camp in Alberta and it was beautiful. We canoed, kayaked, peddle boated (is this a verb?), tried to catch minnows, swam, enjoyed nightly campfires, played mini golf and just enjoyed the beauty of it all.

"Rejoice in the Lord always. Again I will say, rejoice! Let your gentleness be known to all men. The Lord is at hand. Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God."
They took great solace in these verses and lived them out, even while living through a nightmare. She was so encouraging and I really am so happy that we could listen to this piece of history first hand from someone who was there before it is too late.
This weekend was definitely great and we are grateful to the Lord for his blessings.
God bless you.
