Here they are - the high school youth group from church all ready to leave for Canada!
A long trip ahead of them today, their destination is Luther Village, a church camp near Kenora, Ontario.
Oh, no - they were not allowed to bring any electronic devices - no ipods, personal stereos, cell phones, etc. The idea is that they have to talk with each other on the trip.
Another rite of passage here...only child going away for a week, far away, without mom and dad...I have to say that I shed a few tears. Then when my husband and I got home, we started laughing...peace and quiet for a week...sorry, no dancing was allowed, because it was way too early for Mr. and Mrs. Nightcreature~
