Campfire Friday!

What an awesome thing to see, smiling faces, happy kiddos, and it was well deserved. These kids make me smile too! Have a great weekend! 
Here they are enjoying their Campsite and movie, they read an excerpt from the novel "Because of Winn Dixie" and their assessment was about comparing and contrasting a passage about the movie version, so what better way to end a great week than by seeing what they read about.
