As I wrote a few days ago, Hailey is at Family Camp. This is a large group of several families (not all related to us...but many are) who plan all year to meet at this campsite. There are cabins with beds, and a large kitchen where 2 cooks make all the food. The families take turns organizing crafts, etc for the kids. Each night they have 2 campfires...one early one for the families, and a later one for just the adults and kids over age 12. There is always someone to talk to, and something to do. I spent every summer of my life growing up here beginning about age 7.
I found this picture from about 1980 taken at Family Camp, of my oldest son Brock with Hailey's mother Robin. And so the torch has been passed, once again, to the next generation.
I know Robin would have done anything to be with Hailey at camp right now. Hailey's dad is trying to make it up there to see her. I know she is surrounded by lots of family.
My daughter in law Amy is also up there which is a nice distraction from waiting and wondering if the In-vitro worked this time. (Not that she will quit wondering and waiting.) They will all get home on Saturday and then at 6am Monday morning Amy will be at the lab for the test. I just hope the lab does not lose her results like they did last time. Hopefully the suspense will not go on any longer than it has to.
Here is another Family Camp picture from the past. To the right are my youngest 2 sons, McKay and Tyler....taken about there about 8 years ago. I know they would both be there right now if they weren't attending BYU year round. See cousin Carly with the red handkerchief on her head? She is at Family camp this time with her husband and 3 kids! They came up from Panama.
Meanwhile, I am here with Elora.
She spent the night with us,
as her sister Cami needed a test at the children's hospital.
