Grandma's Summer Camp 2015

Our Grand Children have been coming to our home for spring and summer visits since they were babies, and I am so happy the tradition continues. At one point along the way we would have a house full, and we would all gather at the lake house where we would have more activities. It was during that time frame that we named the adventure Grandma's Summer Camp. Some of those kids are now grown and have kids of their own, and I am thrilled when they come back and when some bring their kids. Oh my goodness who ever thought that we would be so blessed to be able to have our camp for Great Grands!

It's Always Fun To Look Back

In the photo collage above, Stephanie on the far left corner with the pillow she made at camp that year, in the bottom center her sister Lauren with her pillow. Those are really cute pillows and they did such a great job! Then on the bottom Ella June Bugs first summer camp. My goodness how time fly's!

As the kids get older time becomes a premium as families get so busy with the limited time between school and work activities. Granddaughter Stephanie will be a Freshman at OSU in the fall, so we were really glad to have her here, before she begins her busy college life. Granddaughter Lauren a junior college student, wife of a military member and mother to Ella June Bug, our Great Grand. They came a long way from their present home so they could be here for camp this year.
