A beautiful High Sierra day!

Hello again from Camp Keola! I am currently sitting underneath one of the many different species of pine trees up here typing on the Internet!! Even way (and I mean way) up here in the High Sierras they have wireless!!! What is this world coming too?! Who knows, but I really am glad we've got it!

Last night was a rough night for sleeping! We were all really tired, and our sleeping arrangements are shell we say rustic at best! We are sleeping in bunk beds in a cabin here at the Camp. I didn't sleep well for may reasons, so tonight we'll be taking a couple of simple sleep to catch up on some much needed rest! Steve is currently sailing solo after only one lessons! We watched him dump it once, but he managed to get the thing back out of the water. We have absolutely nothing to complain about here. We are feed 3 meals a day for free! Our lodging is free and the views are gorgeous! Our family went for our first family kayak trip today to a little island in the middle of the lake! It was alot of fun! It's about time to start thinking about dinner! They ring the bell for breakfast lunch and dinner and we all come running! Afterwards everyone helps clean their tables, it's really great! Camp Keola is a christian camp run by the Mennonite Church! They have a wonderful set up here! We have a group of junior highers here this week! Well that's about it for today, here are some pictures for your enjoyment! Thanks for the continued prayers, and please continue to pray for the Haiti Team!
