Fort Wilderness 2015

We're home from Family Camp! And, as usual, we had a great time. Here are some of the highlights.

  • There was a new music who was great. And, Wild Man got to play bass guitar during morning worship on Thursday!
  • On the morning we left for camp, I woke up at 4am with a migraine. Fun! The migraine stuck around for the first 2 days of camp, so I did a lot of sleeping.
  • On the last full day of camp, I twisted my ankle while walking to the lake for the Loon Float. We ended up not seeing the loons (the first time in about 10 years that Michael hasn't seen the loons!). On the way back to the cabin, I twisted my ankle again, this time pretty badly. PWM and I went to Marshfield Clinic in Minocqua where I got an air cast and some pain meds (I can't take ibuprofen). I have a badly sprained ankle or possible fibular fracture, but they're treated the same way, so I didn't get an XRay done. So, I'm hobbling around.
  • Wild Man won the archery tournament for his age group!
  • Rosie Girl and her friend, Maggie, went on several horse rides.
  • Wild Man and his girlfriend went on the tube float (floating down the Wisconsin River in inner tubes) and were part of a seaweed fight.
  • During the tube float, Rosie Girl babysat a couple of kids for a family who didn't all want to go on the tube float. Apparently, running around after 6 and 4 year old boys for three hours is pretty tiring!
  • Rosie Girl, Wild Man, PWM, and Jenna (Wild Man's girlfriend) were all in the carpetball tournament this year. Jenna did better than anyone else - and it was her first year!
  • The food was beyond delicious!
  • Rosie Girl made a pair of moccasins at the craft shop.
  • It rained all day one day, so we played games and read aloud a lot in the cabin that day.
  • Maggie is the undisputed winner at Sequence.
That was our week at Fort Wilderness. We can't wait to go back next year. And, we're already unpacked with everything put away except for laundry!!
