Life has been so fun here at camp. We are almost done with week 3. craaaazy. my day pretty much consists of following Knox around all day while he does whatever. His favorite things are picking up someone's frisbee while they're playing frisbee golf, flirting with his girlfriend Lily, and shaved ice that I get daily. His least favorite things are sleeping, massive boogers, and camp food minus the desserts which he gets sometimes. A few days ago, a bunch of the older kids were planning on going up to the corral to go ride the horses. Will wanted to take Knox and I was a little hesitant thinking, "He's gonna hate it and I'm gonna have to hold him the whole time and it's just gonna be miserable." I gave in to going only if Will was gonna join me. So, we got up there, Will held him, let him stand by the railing and watch the older kids, then he was the last to go. He was a natural! It was so fun to do something he'd never done before. Here's the video. He likes to watch it almost everyday. We also went to another place later and he rode a mini horse and again loved it.
I've loved to watch Knox interact and play with other kids but one inparticular we hold dear. Here's him and his girlfriend Lily, the most sweet 2 1/2 year old. We share a cabin with her parents, the Schoenleber's from South Carolina. He gets the biggest smile on his face when we walk down the stairs in the morning and there she is on the couch. It's so sweet. There have been times when I listen to her talk and it brings tears to my eyes for 2 reasons... I can't wait to have 2 way conversations with Knox and also for having a girl. She's made Will and I both excited for McCabe to get here and meet her. She looks exactly like I did when I was little so I creepily feel like she's mine and I'm looking into the future.
I love this pic. It looks like they are kissing behind the dining hall. Really they were playing peek-a-boo.
We got one more week in us. Keep praying for Knox to sleep well, going deeper with the people we work with, and for Will and the program team to keep breaking down walls within campers hearts with laughter. thanks, we love you all.
