Today was the first day of 2012 Week One at Lighthouse Family Retreat - and it was AWESOME!
Fifteen families from near and far made their way by plane and automobile (are we there, yet?) to finally gather on the Gulf Place lawn at Santa Rosa Beach, Florida. It's tough to describe how cool it is to see retreat families and their family partners meet for the first time.
Picture lotsa love - with a dash of "What's this going to be like?" blended together.
Now that nearly everyone has had their toes in the sand & splashed in the pool, there are a whole lotta kids - and parents, ha - getting ready for some seriously sound sleep!
But, first, Chef Jim has a fresh batch of his trademark macaroni & cheese in the field for the teenagers. Sleep? Who needs sleep?
Here are a few pix of the day. Be sure to tune in each evening for a peek of fun, Lighthouse style!
