This week we are doing Family Camp at Mt. Hermon. Well, technically the girls are, as we haven't listened into any of the teachings this week... all are on the Reformation. Which we don't really give a fig about, being Orthodox. So I've gotten lots of errand running done as the girls have fun in their different class programs. Eliana learned a verse and made some friends, Adessa's made some friends and learned 400 new songs she wants to sing in their entirety at inopportune times, and Annea has felt like a big girl getting to go to "Playschool" and be dropped off. "Drop me off, Mommy?" she asks. So cute.

Doing a week of camp means we get to take advantage of many wonderful opportunities that Mt. Hermon offers its campers. Yesterday, Adessa and I participated in the kids' ropes course. She did great, it was just the right age (Eliana was nervous and opted out), and we challenged ourselves and pretended we were on "America Ninja Warrior". Fun!
Then, today (Wednesday) was train day. With discounted tickets, a sack lunch and food vouchers, we road from Redwood Camp down to the Boardwalk. The girls have rarely (one other time) ridden the train, so it was high adventure to be riding the rails. And then, even more fun, the beach and the Boardwalk.
Waving to anyone and everyone.
So excited for their first ever chocolate dipped cones. We tried to eat them before getting back on the train, but that wasn't going to happen.
We ended up with ice cream all over ourselves and the train car, but the girls loved their treats.
Riding home. Fun!! Thank you, Mt. Hermon!
