Last week I wrote about my sweet eldest daughter and how hard it was to get up early and say goodbye to her for a whole week. I'm happy to say she is now home and full of wonderful memories and stories of her week long mission trip. I love having her back home!
But today I dropped her brother off at the same church with the same youth pastor and this time a group of middle schoolers heading out on a service minded mission trip. His is only 5 days , but we will miss him and the fun he brings into daily life in our zoo - ummm - I mean our house.
Our Gus-Gus has a great sense of humor and works very hard at the things that he loves. I'm hoping he will love whatever jobs they give him this week. This is his first year going on a mission trip and I can't wait to hear what he thinks and his stories from this week at CampServe
The middle school mission trip (8 kids going from our church) is much smaller than the high school one was (28 kids went from our church). I think the smaller size will be nice for this group and I'm sure our youth pastor feels less stress with 8 kids vs. the 26 kids he was with last week.
Pictured here are the middle school boys going on the trip:
And then I had to insist on one last hug ... he cooperated pretty well:
