Camp Spike N Wave - the After Party

Well, it's been a couple of days since Shelby got back from camp.  I can't help but wonder what I was worried about.  I have rarely seen her as joyful as when I picked her up.  She was so happy that, yes - you guessed it - I cried again.  Happy tears to greet my happy girl.  In this picture, she is getting ready to ride the zip line.  She rode horses, went to a dance, canoed, played mud ball, and participated in the talent show.  And she smiled, and smiled and smiled some more.  Even with her limitations and her struggles to communicate, my girl is a people person.  I can only imagine how she shined surrounded by 160 kids and amazing counselors all week!  It does a mommy's heart good.  I'm so thankful that she had this experience and so glad to have her back home for more summer adventures.  God cares for me, and he loves Shelby better than I ever could.  Maybe someday I will learn to trust him completely.  Until then I will continue to work to "Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you."  1 Peter 5:7
