For Everything There is a Season

"For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven," Ecclesiastes 3:1

I am saddened to think that the short season when my family works for Rock-N-Water, a christian living history camp, has come to an end.  But looking back on these past few months I am filled with only good memories.  Memories that make me laugh, and memories that will always bring a smile to my face, even when I know that I may not have been able to smile when that memory was being made.

I have learned so much through working at this special place.  Not only have I grown in more ways than one over these past two months, but I have made so many wonderful friendships that I know will last forever.

Below are some of the highlights from the last month of Rock-N-Water (May).

 We dressed up as Indians for the Maidu trip

Setting up stations for the Maidu trip 


 Taking a break after a day of hard, but fun, work

This was my attempt to create an outfit that was half Indian and half pioneer

 Cutting leather for one of the stations

Lots of hands helping to restock the gold vials for gold panning

My brother all ready for his trip

My brother being silly, no actually, he's just being himself


Doing candle station with my group

My dear friend Sarah on the Indian grinding rock 

I'm going to miss all of these wonderful people

I'm so thankful for the wonderful season we had at Rock-N-Water these last two months. Now that it has come to and end, I am looking forward to an even better season next year!

If any of my Rock-N-Water family sees this post I just want to tell you all thanks so much for an AMAZING year!  

Finally, Another Post!

I have been so busy working at Rock-N-Water,  a living History camp my family works at during the spring. I'm sorry that it has been weeks since my last post. I just haven't found the time to sit down and write a new post.  But I have found the time to edit some pictures that my mom has taken at Rock-N-Water. I thought I would share some of the pictures.  Below are some highlights of the first month at Rock-N-Water.  

 My brother and I working in the kitchen

Camp cleanup, many hands make the work light

My Siblings and I (I'm in the middle)

Filling up the water gott

Having fun at Campfire

 Staying warm by the fire after a long day 

Who says work can't be fun

We played the craziest game of jump rope at the staff party.  I'm not very good at jump rope so I took pictures.

And that is a peek into why I have been so busy the past month and will still be busy this next month.  I'm so blessed to have found a place to belong at this place and with these amazing people.  Rock-N-Water truly is a special place.
