She was a little too small to play Kajabe and Ultimate Frisbee, but all in all she had a great time! I had a great time too, it was a good thing I think for us to be out of the house and on an adventure in the mountains. The camp was at Mount Hermon in Santa Cruz about 40 minutes drive from where we live.
Honestly I was a little stressed about going just because she is still so little and requires so much constant care and attention, and we are definitely not savvy at breastfeeding in public yet. I knew I didn’t want to have her completely by myself at home for 48 hours either though! So we decided to pack up all her things and tote her along. It was nice that I didn’t have any responsibility but her, so I didn’t even leave the room til after 10:00 or 11:00am both days. I would just put her in the carseat attached to the stroller and push her around everywhere. She went to a lot of the sessions and slept through most everything. I would just walk her back to the room to feed her and David would bring me a plate if it was during the mealtimes. We put her in her pack and play at night and she slept from 2 to 7 the first night and 3 to 8 the second night. We also loved the fact that the place we stayed had an electric heater mounted on the wall right above her. She thoroughly enjoyed being in the warmest part of the room!
The retreat itself was really great too, there were 7 churches there from the San Jose area and all the students really seemed to have a great time. South Bay took 7 teens and most of them had never been to a camp or retreat like this one. Here is a picture of our group that I took. Ella is sacked out in her stroller. Looking forward to watching God continue to work in the lives of each of these students!
