Do you not know that the runners in the stadium all run in the race, but only one wins the prize? Run so as to win. Every athlete exercises discipline in every way. They do it to win a perishable crown, but we an imperishable one. Thus I do not run aimlessly; I do not fight as if I were shadowboxing. No, I drive my body and train it, for fear that, after having preached to others, I myself should be disqualified. - 1 Cor 9:24-27

GO - Get Outdoors

GO - Get Outdoors celebrates outdoor recreation.  Our local state park provided opportunities for the family to fish, learn to tie knots, kayak, make a campfire dinner, listen to Indian stories, and archery.

When we arrived, the kids headed straight towards the kayaks.

Brother's turn to take dad for a cruise:

Next, we learned all about great horned owls.  Thanks Journey (the owl)!

On to fishing....
Looks like Trouble caught something!
 She was so excited.  Trouble was jumping up and down, clapping her hands, and saying, "I caught a fish, I caught a fish, I caught a fish"  A small bluegill is what she caught.

  3. Wow, what a great vacation! My kids would love to do something like that for sure:) My oldest son loves to kayak and we did a little kayaking on our summer vacation last year on Lake Superior! My four and a half year old loves to fish too:) It is so fun to see the little ones get so excited when they actually catch a fish:) I am glad that your entire family had a blast!
