The 5th grade went on a 3-day 2-night field trip to a lake camp that the school district owns.
Ethan said being away from his parents made him nervous and excited at the same time.
One boy gathered everyone together and had them repeat the prayer after him. "Dear God, Thank you that we could come to camp, and for all the chocolate chip cookies. Amen." They all liked that prayer.
Sweet Ethan and Malakai, who is also LDS, said their own prayers. One of the kids wondered what was wrong with Malakai because he was kneeling by his bed with his head bowed. Ethan had to explain that he was praying.
When Ethan got off the bus today, he was practically floating he was so happy. I'm glad his first experience away from us was a good one!
