Everyone gather outside to hear the word and sing songs of praises to our Father in Heaven.

LIFT OFF …..

Chute has deployed and we have reentry ….
Every child's rocket was launched successfully and recovery operations were 100%. Only one Rocket ventured slightly off course and required a water rescue as it reentered the lake.

How about some fishing to relax those rattled nerves from all those rocket launches …

She was having no problem handling this worm although she was saying the whole time "I'm freaking out".

BUT … she put that worm to good use … as did all our other fishermen and women …

Here's the thing about fishing …..
IMG_3643
It can be terribly exciting, sometimes even frightening, to see what you caught ….

AND … at other times the waiting puts you to sleep …

With Fishing and Rocket launches all completed it was time to gather up for one last lunch followed by clean up and packing to head home.

All the kids were great about helping out to clean up after each meal. Then it was time to pack the dorms and get everything staged for loading up to go home.

As always none of this happens without our great volunteers from our Church … Here are a few that were willing to pose for a picture … there were many others and we want to thank EVERYONE!!!
