The Circle Of Life

So, recently we have been going to a lot of parks nearby, and we went to one with our friends called Alta Mons, and while we were there we met some adorable puppies that our friends named Luke and Leia. That was fun, but the dogs ended up being strays, and they went to a pound. We are hoping some of our friends adopt them. We have recently been getting visits from some humming birds at home. Two are regular green, and one is a ruby throated humming bird. They look like this:
     Also, we have purchased several new flowering plants, like butterfly bushes and hydrangea. We are hatching some eggs in an incubator that we are borrowing from a friend, and we might even hatch some ducks!

Our speakers this year were the Kings, who are some very nice people who go to a lot of places to share the gospel, and they have even gone to where people suspect Jesus was buried. Mr. King was in the military as a medic, and has some great stories of death bed redemption. The camp director is Mr. Shelor, who can be really funny or really stern, so much so that he has been called Mr.Stern Man.
