When Kerry and I moved to Minneapolis, MN, in fall of 2002, the directors at Village Creek Bible Camp asked if he would be the speaker for Labor Day family camp at the end of the following summer. This weekend marks our ninth consecutive year and Kerry’s ninth consecutive year as the speaker.
I think after nine years, this is a tradition.
A tradition is something that you do because you always have done it. Since moving to Minnesota, we have spent every Labor Day at Village Creek with pretty much the same group of people. Family camp is one of the best thinks that has ever happened. Families stay in cabins as a unit, so they can spend quality time together. There are activities that can be done as families. One of the best aspects of this camp is the family assistant who assists families with their kids. This year, both of our own kids are family assistants – not for us, though.
The great thing about this tradition is that we love it!
What is your Labor Day tradition?
