Lassen Volcanic National Park

Monday, October 9th, 2006

After Sierra Bible Camp, our family visited Lassen Volcantic National Park.

Lassen Peak developed as a vent on the ancient Mt. Tehama. Lassen Peak rises to 10, 457 feet. Lassen Peak erupted in 1915.


The park features lava pinnacles, lave flow mountains, crater and steaming sulphur vents. The volcanic activity created canyons, lakes and streams.

SBC 2006

Monday, October 9th, 2006

Jaclyn, Jennifer and I spent 9 days at SBC, Sierra Bible Camp.

Jaclyn registered as a full camper for the first time. Full camper privileges include sleeping in a camper cabin, participating on an Olympic team, KP duties and late night serenading to the boy’s cabins.

Jennifer participated as a staff camper. Like a full camper she attended Bible classes, free time events, swimming, campfire and the lake walk. For the third year in a row, I ran the craft area during camp.Mike joined us on the 5th day of camp and helped in the kitchen.
It was harder for us this year, not having Mike there all week. There were less problems and tears once he arrived.


Jackie really enjoyed her Olympic team, the Copycats. The Olympic teams are pre-chosen with a variety of ages levels/abilities within each team. Jackie had a nice group of girls on her team, which made it fun for her. It was a supportive and creative team. Olympic events include fun games, team cheers, team skits and team challenges of volleyball. Each team is awarded points as they play games, perform skits, etc. Jackie’s team, Copycats, ended the week with the most points. For all their effort, they received a special treat. At the final SBC dinner, the team was given a special table and served their dinner.


Long Weekend

Sunday, October 8th, 2006

It feels like every weekend since mid-August has been a long one. This weekend kinda beats the cake though with:

  • soccer X2
  • Girl Scout camp – overnight
  • Birthday party – overnight
  • another birthday party
  • major shuffling of children to and fro

All this while Mike was gone away on a trip!

We are home now and crashing.


My blog has been severely neglected and I look forward to updating it quite a bit this week. Stay tuned!
