My life interests seem to be intersecting…and I’ll write about that in more detail in another blog. But I’ll tell you now that one of my life interests will always be individuals who have special needs, due to our two children, now in heaven, who had special needs.
So this morning, my husband Mike and I were privileged to bring our three goats to visit Lions Camp. Here is a link to their website: Lions Camp Lions Camp offers a camp experience for individuals, both children and adults, who have various special needs. And the camp just happens to be close to our new home in the mountains!
I thought I would share just a bit about our morning and share some pictures 🙂
We arrived relieved that our three goats, Lucy, Sadie, and Miriam, handled the car ride very well. Thank you, if you prayed for that, for I asked several friends and relatives to do so. And they didn’t mind heading for the grassy field, even though it was new territory for them. And it was a picture-perfect day.
My friend Anna also came with her dad. Anna is a full-time caregiver for her daughter who requires complete care, and for her dad who had a stroke. Anna and I, along with the daughter of the executive director of the camp, couldn’t resist running with the goats through the spring-like open field.
Following are some pictures of some of the weekend campers as well as camp staff and volunteers.
And then we took some mighty tired goats home in the dog crate. On the way over they made a lot of noise, being unsure of what was going on. On the way back, they just snuggled up, contentedly, having had a fun day, and rested!
