Ellie is back from Camp

Ellie spent the last 8 days at Operation Purple Camp, a free camp for children of deployed/deploying military members. She had a great time despite the fact that it rained most of the week. She went swimming, did archery, shot paintball guns (at targets, not eachother), made smores, sang songs, and just had a good time making friends her age who are in a similar situation as her. She came home with a bag of wet clothes (which I hate to admit I still haven't opened - I should probably do that before they get up and walk away!) We are glad to have her back home with us. It was hard having both her and Andy gone at the same time. It just didn't feel quite like home. I'm glad she got the break from noisy siblings though :) They were all very glad to see her again!
