So camp wraps up this week and we get to head home. We are seriously going to miss San Diego and the huge blessing this place has been in our lives over the last month. It's been so good to have Peter around our camp staff every day and watch him interact with everyone in such a positive way. We'll miss spontaneous trips out to dinner in the evenings and all the cool places to hang our around here.
Camp went really well and we saw so many kids' lives changed. My ministry really was more to the youth pastors and being sure their needs were taken care of, as well as just constantly dealing with all the logistics of keeping camp running. In addition to being camp co-director with Jay, I was constantly overseeing our finances, cash flows and just plain keeping things going smoothly. I love that I get to be hands on with camp for a month. It would drive me crazy if I had to do an entire summer, but this is the perfect balance of hands-on and doing behind-the-scenes things.
But my favorite part has been just spending time with my amazing wife and son. It's been so cool to watch Peter grow right before my eyes, and then to share all of this together with April is pretty much the coolest thing ever. We are just so blessed.
So we head home on Sunday after catching a last-minute Padres game on Saturday night. We are definitely looking forward to being home and just catching our breath; but at the same time will seriously miss this place. I guess we'll just have to come back again next year.
