KAT-FISH Camp

Girls at KAT FISH CAMP 2009 (warm beach)

A few weekends ago our family went to KAT FISH (Kids and Teens' Families Investing Support and Hope) Camp. This was the forth year we have gone (we missed last year) and this year Bill and I decided to be in the back-ground and work with the kids. The girls had a great time at camp and we had a great time working with 22 1st and 2nd grade kids. This camp is a true blessing for people to connect with each other and hear about the different aspects of what their children are dealing with and also to learn how to cope with having a child with a chronic illness. I know the first year that we went to camp in 2005 it was a ton of information, but liberating to hear others. Sadie has always enjoyed going as they make it really fun for the kids yet no one has to explain why they may not be able to do something or why something may take them a bit longer. This year they got to try climbing the rock wall and Sadie and Bill went on a horseback riding trip! We had fun working with the kids and hope that we will get to participate again with them.
