We are on our way home from Camp Daniel Boone!!!  We should arrive between 4-5 Sunday afternoon.

Summer Camp

                  We had a great camp.  Everything that is packed is wet.  Nothing dried in our wonderful weather of high of 80 and low of 58.  We had rain every day, usually short showers.  We participated in 85 merit badges and completed 64.  We drove 15 hours each way and ate camp food :/.  We completed 7 rank advancements.  One survived a night in the wilderness, and one survived the 52 degree lake water to complete Lifesaving.  A scoutmaster won the shotgun competition, though no one was willing to try the belly flop competition.  We are tired.  The adults averaged about 15,000 steps a day and 10 flights of stairs.  The kids – much more.  Thank you for your gifts, thoughts and prayers. We can’t wait to shower, sleep, shower and wash clothes!!
