LDS Scout Camp Great Success

Over the last week from June 20th to June 25th, Moses had the opportunity of attending scout camp with 160 other boys from Pensacola, Panama City, Fort Walton Beach, and Mobile stakes of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.
Pictured here is their daily devotional: when a speaker comes to give an inspirational talk to all the boys in the evening. Moses completed several merit badges including canoeing.  Henry got to attend a special 11year-old scout over night there on Thursday and Friday morning and he has almost all of his Tenderfoot requirements completed. I was able to join the group on Friday afternoon for their closing ceremonies.  It was very hot but lots of fun to be with the boys.
My week went fast and after Henry left I was completely alone in the house for two days.  That was unusual for me.  But I canned 18 quarts of our own peaches and visited Tasha with Arthur and Sadie and made a quilt for Sarah's little Rex.  I also got stung by a yellow fly at Tasha's place which really hurt.  At the same time I was stung, the boys at camp stumbled upon a yellow jacket nest and eight of them were stung including one that was very allergic.  All well that ends well but it was a long, hot, wet week!!!!
