Psalm 150:4a ~ Praise Him with the tambourine and dancing.
Audrey went to camp last week. Tambourine camp. It's not as weird as it sounds. She went to a camp for Daughters of Zion, a group to which she was introduced last year at homeschool guilds. She loved it so much and couldn't wait for camp.
The focus of camp was on worship, and the kids learned different ways to worship: with tambourines, dance, streamers.
On the evening of the last day, the kids did a recital to show off all that they had learned. It was a fun hour of worship.
To keep the boys busy during the girls' camp, a PE teacher from a local Christian school volunteered his time to supervise a week of sports. The boys had a wonderful time playing soccer, capture the flag, street hockey, and ultimate frisbee.
Because the camp took place quite a distance from our house, I whittled away the 2 1/2 hours of camp acquainting myself with a new part of town, running errands, walking a mall, and chatting with Facebook friends on my phone.
It was always a welcome part of the day to stop wandering and return to pick up two tired, sweaty boys and one happy girl.
