Off to Summer Camp

All three of our children are off to summer camp. They stay at the island of Schiermonnikoog, one of the Waddensea Islands north of the Dutch provinces of Friesland and Groningen.
Robin, Sosha and Pasalle love to go there and they were really looking forward to meeting their friends again. They go to this Christian youth camp each year - which gives us time to do some projects in our house and spend some time together with 'just the two of us'.
Pics - Robin (16) is relaxed as always. He is looking forward to playing on his electric guitar with his friends... Sosha (14) never has a problem to 'fit in' - she will especially enjoy all the sports and games activities... It's easy to see that Pascalle (11) is very excited too - she was immediately reunited with a friend she got to know last year. She is a sensitive girl and the look in her eyes (picture above) tells you that she has some mixed emotions about leaving home for a week.

We are happy for them, but of course we can't wait to have them back home next Saturday!

I loved these moments. It is so much fun to see the children excited. Not to mention getting some time alone with the wife.

I was always excited for my kids to go off to camp, mission trip, or whatever, but I worried about them too much. I looked forward to wrapping my arms around them upon their return. Enjoy the time with Lydia!
