NGJ Texas Shindig

This past October, our family attended the No Greater Joy Texas Shindig in Big Sandy, TX. We had such a great time and can't wait until next year. It was amazing to spend 4 days with over a thousand like-minded families. The fellowship was great.
Here are some pictures below; enjoy :D
This was a giant game of musical chairs that we stayed up playing until about 10:30 one night.

These are just a few pictures capturing some of the fun we had. It was great to just be able to sit back and relax and not worry about anything. After I leave a camp like this, I have a hard time transitioning back into the world. For those few days, we don't have to worry about inappropriate behavior or skimpy clothing. Then we have to come back into the real world and be careful what we see in public places. It shouldn't be this way, but it is. This makes me even more thankful for family vacations like these.
Thank you Mr. and Mrs. Pearl for such a great time.
