It has been a lot of fun to get to observe all of Luke & Nathan's "firsts". Last weekend we did their very first camping trip. They loved it! They met wild (but very friendly) ponies, hiked on the Appalachian trail, slept in the tent, made lots of new friends (we camped with several other families) & went home completely sacked out! :)
Details: for family members who want to know!
*That's John in the orange shirt, reading from the "Jesus Story Bible" to several of the kids. He read to them about how God created the world, which was so appropriate since we were spending the weekend out in nature.
*Nathan, once again, had an uncanny connection with the ponies. The little stallion he was hugging wasn't even one of the friendlier ones, but he was calm & still with Nathan. So interesting to watch.
*The last two pics are the boys asleep in the van on the way home. Nathan fell asleep hanging waaaaay back! So funny how tired out they were!
