We spent last week in Tulsa at our adoption agency's culture camp. We first went when Katherine was 4 and decided then that we would return to China Camp every year. Ten years later it is still very much a part of our summer routine!
Katherine has aged out of the regular camp, so she moved up to being a Teen Counselor. She always admired the bigger girls who volunteered in her classes and was excited to be one of them now.
Rachel was in the Sheep group, all kids who had finished 3rd grade. She doesn't have "orphanage sisters" in her class, like Katherine did, but she has made friends that she looks forward to seeing every year.
One of my favorite parts of China Camp is Picture Day. I never tire of seeing all those beautiful faces or of the Where's Waldo-like search for my own girls.
Camp always opens with drums and a lion dance.
