Greenwood Hills Family Camp

This past week we had a wonderful family vacation at Greenwood Hills Family Camp. It was a wonderful time of fellowship and Bible teaching. Mike Attwood and Bill Yuille were the teachers. Mike taught on I John and Bill taught us lessons that can be learned from the life of David in I Samuel. Both did an excellent job. The above picture is a photo of our cabin. (Cabin#1) It was the furthest from the dining hall and chapel. We got lots of exercise!
Elizabeth took a nap the first day, but after that she decided that she would rather be swimming. The beds were your typical camp bunks, but after the first night we all slept better. There was 12 bunks in each cabin, as well as toilets and showers. It accommodated our family nicely.

Michelle and Mr. Boots enjoyed the food at the dining hall. The staff was very efficient and friendly. They kept everything spic and span.

The weather was around 90 degrees every day, so the pool was a necessity, not just a nice option. We swam every day, except for the afternoon we went to Gettysburg.

They had a nice playground for the children. Elizabeth enjoyed time with her daddy playing there. It was so nice to have him around all the time, without the distractions of work.

We all played shuffle board this week. I had never played on a nice court before. It was a lot of fun, although I wasn't very good at it. JoAn and Mr. Boots beat the boss and I both times we played. The first game we never got out of negative numbers.

The young men played soccer one afternoon. It was too hot for me to even watch. I hung out at the pool. All three boys participated though. You can see Mr. Boots just entering the picture. Our children are not very skilled soccer players. They lack experience. They did make great strides in their volleyball skills, especially Mr. Boots. We plan on working on fine tuning our volleyball skills this fall.

This is the front porch of the dining room. The porch had big ceiling fans and rocking chairs. It was a comfortable place to hang out, talk, and fellowship with friends. The women in the picture are Dottie V.and her mom Dee H.. Dottie went to college with us and her mom goes to church with us. We had a lovely time getting re-acquainted with old friends and making new ones.
