June 23...

What in the world!? How is it really June 23 right now?? You guys come tomorrow night!!! AHH!!!! It's gone too fast!!!

What a term it's been! Thank you, Thank you, and Thank you...for letting us have your daughter for 25 or 13 days! Goodness, it has been a blast and I pray that you as a parent have had some re-coop time before the "teenage daughter" hits your house again...just kidding, but seriously :)!

Verse: Psalm 101:3: "I will set before my eyes no vile thing. The deeds of faithless men I hate; they will not cling to me."

Morning: This morning we had 1st and 2nd periods of speciatly time and then had 3rd period to practice the tribal competition they signed up for last night.

Afternoon: PENTATHLON!!! Wooohooo!!!! I love pentathlon day! It is pretty warm today so we would love prayer for lots of hydration!!! I promise at every meal and every chance we have reminded those kiddos to drink water! I'm sure they are sick of hearing it! Each cabin signs up for the team pentathlon. Each girl picks to swim, jump rope, run, canoe, or do archery. It's a blast! The cabins really bond on this day and I always cry at the finish line...I'm so pathetic!! I just love it when kids rally together...I guess because I know the world trys to get them (especially girls) to go against each other. So I just love seeing everyone running down K2 road cheering for their 1 runner to finish! Oh, it's just awesome! Kampers can also sign up to not do the cabin one but do an short individual or long individual! We have some mega athletes!! Today, I will just be supervising. I am sad not to be doing the event but the heat mixed with 4 months preggo-ness probably wouldn't be the best idea for baby Robbins!

Night: Final Campfire. Joe White does his final "campfire" down in the tribal ring. We also announce tonight who decided to take the K2 Leadership Challenge. The Leadership Challenge is the core of what K2 stands on...and that is that every kamper that walks in to our gates is a christan leader (even if they don't know it yet). We believe that every kid has a mighty purpose for the Lord. So each 3 days we have the counselors meet with each kamper to talk through the "challenge day." The 4 challenges are Believe, Belong, Be Trained, Be Strong. Anyways, I hope your little one did it! It's not about another program Kanakuk does but really about a decision between them and the Lord to be a christian leader back home and dare to dream.

Window to their World,
Kanakuk Ashley Robbins

p.s. See you all tomorrow around 5 pm!
