    Sounds like a week of church camp when I was young, and when I was a teenager, I helped in the kitchen or dorms with the younger kids, and always enjoyed that time. Something about a group of women cooking together or sharing in the work is so much more fun than doing the same work alone.

    I loved this post. It sounds like a huge family reunion time and camp meeting, all rolled into one. How wonderful to have this time to look forward to every year. Thank you for sharing this all with us, Rosanna.
