Emily's week at Camp Id-ra-ha-Je!

One of Emily's big Christmas gifts this past year was to go to camp Id-ra-ha-Je this summer.  Id-ra-ha-Je is a Christian camp in the mountains of Colorado that is tons of fun.  It is expensive, so Emily actually worked hard to raise her part of the money needed to go.  She LOVED it!  It was an action packed, spiritually enriching, fun-filled, friendship rich week that she has been savoring ever since.

We sent little fun surprises along for her to open each day, but weren't really able to contact her.  It was strange to be "un-plugged" from our girl for a whole week (and definitely not the same at the campground without her), but we knew she was having a great time!  Everyone was thrilled to see her again on Saturday (and didn't even mind being drug out of bed super early in order to get to the mountains in time for breakfast with her!) The kids all had fun eating snow cones and playing on the playground together before we started the trek back home.
