Texas Day 9

Well we drove 755 miles today and ended up in Alabama, about 70 miles south of Montgomery. Thank you Lord for safe travel. Everyone is in their rooms and I am sure some are already asleep. Just a reminder parents we do plan to be at the church by 1:00p.m. tomorrow so be sure and be there to pick up your student. If we will be later than 15 minutes we will have your student call you but we are leaving enough time to be there by 1:00 if not before.

Overall we were able to get a lot done around the camp and the staff was really thankful and gracious. We plan to head back towards GA tomorrow at 7:00a.m. (8:00a.m. GA time). Thank you for all the prayers and comments as I have been able to share them throughout the week.

Texas Day 6

Well today was a "free day." Some were able to sleep in a little late and then we headed to the zip line. That was a lot of fun. Everyone has a lot of good pictures and vidoe from that. We then ate lunch and had a mini birthday party for Landon before heading back out. We then rode on the kayak's and let's just say some people got wet. Then before heading to clean up for dinner, we played a little paintball!!!! After cleaning up for dinner we went to a place called tha Oasis. It was the biggest restaurant we have ever seen and it overlooked Lake Travis. The view was amazing as the sun set. Now off to bed before our last day of work tomorrow.

We were really busy today so I didn't get to take as many pictures as normal. Tomorrow is the Zip Line day and play day! Thanks for all the prayers and comments, things are going well.
