|Six in the Hood||
We started day 3 down by the campfire with "Dudley's Cowboy Coffee"! (I had Korean coffee in the house; Dudley's Cowboy Coffee was a bit to thick for me!)
After breakfast we had a free morning to do whatever we wanted to do...I tried to get the kids to go to the beach, but none of them wanted to, they all wanted to hang with the fabulous Mrs. Teri! So instead of the beach Dudley took a few of us out and taught us (or tried to teach us) how to shoot!
I know what you are thinking, I look awesome in that picture holding that gun and I totally look like I know what I am doing. Well I should! For heaven's sake, I have seven brothers and a husband in the ARMY! I should know what I am doing. Sadly though, I don't think I could have hit the target if I had been standing 3 feet away. I stink at shooting, if you see me with a gun, you should stand right in front of me, because I promise I will miss. Shooting was fun and all, but I didn't really catch the bug like someone I know.....
Check it out....they are all looking over my shoulder in disbelief. They checked the gun to make sure I wasn't shooting blanks.
Even this Jersey girl was a better shot than me.
A couple of the parents stole some of the kids away from Mrs. Teri!
After our free morning we moved onto a night of inspiration! First on the agenda was inspirational speaker Krish Dhanam ! He was amazing, and my favorite speaker of the entire weekend. His heart was genuine when he said, "I am an inspirational speaker, but when I speak to our military I am humbled and do not feel inspirational, because you are the ones I get my inspiration from." Kirsh is from India & his story is wonderful. Every single person in the room had a tear in their eye at one point or another while listening to Krish. If you ever get a chance to hear this man speak, you must not let the opportunity pass you by.
As if it wasn't enough to hear Krish speak, the next person to arrive at camp was the fabulous Dan Clark (are you kidding me?!?)! Recognized as one of the top 10 speakers in the WORLD, Dan took time out of his busy schedule to talk to our little camp! As always, Dan captivated his audience and left us flying high!
I know what you are thinking, can there be more? Yes, next up the kids put on a talent show for us! I love this picture of the parents with their FLIPS & cameras!
Next we had a HUGE Texas style BBQ dinner!
We are not done yet...after dinner Melissa Lawson (the winner of Nashville Star 2008) performed for us on the ranch! It was a great concert with good company! It was so fun watching everyone dance & having a great time. I even found out (as Boy 3 continued to go on stage to dance with Melissa) that she also has a Boy 3! If you know Boy 3's real name, she has one! They even spell it the same! Crazy!
Another amazing day at Camp Better America!
