Confo 2008

Debbie and Brock spent two weeks together at Hasscib Lake for Confirmation Camp. They seemed to have a really enjoyable and memorable time. Kirsti (Dean and Sharon's oldest) was at the same camp.

They were fortunate to have Grandpa, Grandma, Heather and Jen attend confirmation exercises to support and encourage them.

Most of our family was able to attend. Eric & Rosie and Michelle had to stay back. Kelsey Fredrickson and Lasse-Matti (our "Finn boy") came with us. We left home Friday morning and made it to Van Riper campground in time to set up camp and have suppper. Anita and Jeanette passed us in Superior. They came to visit at the campground that evening. Saturday we climbed Sugar Loaf Mt and spent the afternoon swimming in Lake Superior and making sand castles on the beach. It was a beautiful day! That evening we enjoyed the family night program at Hasscib, getting to see the kids for the first time. Sunday morning we went back to camp for the confirmation program. We stayed and spent the afternoon on Hasscib lake, paddling canoes and paddle boats with the lake all to ourselves. Ahhh, the beauty and peacefullness of it all! We had a late night bon fire visit that night, then packed up in the morning. We went blueberry picking before heading home, and then stopped in Duluth to get a bit more beachtime on Lake Superior.

A great time was had by all. We
with Heather and Jen on our ride
stayed at Triangle Motel as did
Anita and Jeanette. After the last
2 got back from parents night at
Hasscib we gathered outside by
Heather and Jen's room for coffee
and popcorn. Greg Bratt and 2 of his daughters from a few doors down joined us also. While waiting
for Anita and Jeanette we played 2
games of Scrabble, H won #1 and Jen
scrabbled #2 so won by a landslide.
