Penial Ranch 2014

Yes! I just came back from my vacation to Penial Ranch! I loved every moment of it, even though it was hot. (Every day during the afternoon the temperatures went over 90 degrees Fahrenheit.) I'll give you an idea of what a day there would be like schedule wise:
A beautiful sunset

6:00 am: I'd get up and take a shower, then go over to the dining room to spend some free time playing Ping-Pong or pool before breakfast.

8:00 am: Breakfast

9:00 am-11:30ish am: Swimming. Yeah, we spent a lot of time swimming. The water was freezing cold, and it felt so good. There was a dock to jump and/or dive off of, but you did have to watch out for rocks.
The water felt SO good! (but VERY COLD!!!)

12:00 pm: Lunch

1:00 pm-2:00 pm: Bible Bee hour. This was the time for quiet Bible study and prayer. It was nice to be able to calm down during the hottest time of day and relax with my Bible and Sword Study for an hour.
Gracie Asa wanted to get her hair done, so I volunteered. :P
By the way, don't you love my swimming dress??

2:30 pm-3:30 pm: More swimming...I told you we did a lot of that... :P

3:45 pm-4:30 pm: An event. One day we did Archery, another day, Pony rides, another day, knife throwing. More swimming until dinner.

Most of the arrows ended up on the ground...
but everyone had such a fun time shooting them it didn't really matter. :)

5:30 pm: Dinner

6:30ish pm- 7:00ish pm: You guessed it...more swimming.

7:00 pm: Our evening event. One night this was a talent night, another night we watched a movie, one night my oldest brother Andrew gave a talk about Galatians.
Andrew is a really good speaker. He hopes to become a church planter as soon as he finishes seminary.

8:00 pm-10:30ish: We played volleyball, Frisbee, Apples to Apples, Taboo, etc. It was fun to get together with the other kids my age and have a hilarious time playing various games way past our bed time.
Totally Eastern WA look. :)

Yeah, I loved doing that with our church and my family. We made special memories and had a lot of fun doing so. I had the privilege of taking pictures for the Penial Ranch slideshow we'll be showing at our church next Sunday. I miss it already, though, and I can't wait until we go there again!! :D
Love my little brothers!! :D

Hope you enjoyed the update on how I've been doing! God bless you over the next week! :)


  1. It looks like you had a lot of fun!!
    I love your swimming dress! :-) I just got one for my birthday and I love wearing it because it's so modest.

    1. We did have a lot of fun! Oo! You have a swimming dress? Cool! (literally. :P)
