Fun Day 8/31

Hello! Maria welcomes you to the last part of Christina and The River Recue!!

While this was happening the girls where looking franticly for the dolls. They had given up during the night because their flashlights went dead. They had went back to bed and said that they would look again the next day. That morning Shawna was the first to awaken. She rolled over and looked at the clock. She linked and looked again. Was it really only 6:00, sun was already up. She yawned and set up.

“I might as well get dressed.” she said. As she walked over to her suitcase she tried over Lizzy and fell right on top of Shantel.

“Oh” Shantel said “Get of me!”

“Sorry’ Shawna said a little to loudly.

“Will you girls be quiet?” ask Amanda “I’m trying to sleep”

“But it’s morning!” protested Shawna

“No it’s only 6:00 it is not morning yet.” Amanda said as she buried her back into her pillow.

Well the girls finally got around to getting out of bed. They ate breakfast then got ready to go search for the dolls.

“Let’s split up in groups of two” said Kendra “That way we can cover 3 times as much land.”

“I want to go with Amanda!” said Heather

“I wanted to go with her.” said Shawna

“I want to go with Kendra” said Shantel

“And I want to go with Shawna” added Lizzy

“Then it’s decided.” Said Amanda “Heather will go with me. Here each of you take one of these.” She handed a whistle to each of them. “And one of these maps.” she said as she gave one to each group. “Kendra, you and Shantel look over by the cave and woods. Lizzy and Shawna you look around the tents and when you are done there you can look by the stream. Heather and I will look around the lake.” She paused to catch her breath.

“What about the whistles?” ask Shantel “And what is we find the dolls?”

“if you find the dolls blow the whistle three times really loud. If you hear the whistle you should echo the whistle three more times. Then meet back here at camp.” answered Amanda. The Girls split up, each group going their separate ways. As they left Heather was quiet.

“what’s wrong heather?” ask Amanda “You normally are so talkative.”

“Oh I was just thinking about the dolls,” Heather answered. “Mom will be so mad if she finds out.”

“Lets just hope we can dry them off.” replied Amanda. Son they reached the edge of the lake and began to search around it. An hour later they had gone all the way around the edge and they had not found the dolls.

“we’ve looked every where! I don’t think they are here.” Amanda sighed. All of a sudden Heather shouted

“LOOK!” Amanda followed where Heather was pointing. There, in the middle of the lake, was an island. It wasn’t very big, just big enough to have a small clump of trees and a beach.

“Lets go check it out.” Heather suggested. The girls walked over to the dock.

“Was it broken yesterday?” ask Heather.

“I don’t think so.” answered Amanda “The storm probably did it.” They got in the other canoe, the one that had the ors in it, and began to row toward the island. As they got closer heather suddenly called out,

“Look! It looks like there is another canoe over there!”

The girls rowed hard and soon they had pulled the canoe up on land. They began to look around. Higher up on the bank the dolls lay fast asleep. They had covered up the fire with sand, so the girls couldn’t see it.

“Heather look!” Amanda said grabbing Heathers arm. “The dolls!”

Heather ran over and picked up some of the dolls and put them in the canoe while Amanda blew the whistle. Soon they heard the whistle back.

“I wonder how they got over here?” ask Heather as she and Amanda picked up Christina and Julie.

“I don’t know” answered Amanda. “It’s weird.” Christina looked over at Julie and winked, They knew. They knew that the sun had dried them off. They also knew that they where going to have the best summer ever! 

Well what do you think of this story?? I really like it, but what do you think? Next week we will have the next Story in the Seires *Kaya and the Missing Horse Mystory* up! See you then! :)

The Weekly News 8/26

Hi All! Ruthie here. This post has been a long time in coming so I hope it's worth it.....
Josie and I drove to the Mountains.

And parked at the bottom.

We started the long trip up the mountain.

After about 2 or 3 hours we got to the camp spot.

It had a really good view.

Josie made a fire ring while I when to get firewood.

I finely found some after a long look.

We sat by the fire place and ate supper.

After that I lad down my mat.

and just as I was pulling the covers up....

Josie decided that she didn't want to sleep in the mountains.

So she when down and slept in the car.

I slept soundly.

But Josie fell of the seat 5 times!

She had such a bad headache that I got to drive!

She slept the rest of the day.

See you next week!

Verse Of The Week 8/25

Hello again! ;) This weeks Chapter is found in Psalms 13

 1 How long wilt thou forget me, O LORD? for ever? how long wilt thou hide thy face from me?
 2 How long shall I take counsel in my soul, having sorrow in my heart daily? how long shall mine enemy be exalted over me?
 3 Consider and hear me, O LORD my God: lighten mine eyes, lest I sleep the sleep of death;
 4 Lest mine enemy say, I have prevailed against him; and those that trouble me rejoice when I am moved.
 5 But I have trusted in thy mercy; my heart shall rejoice in thy salvation.
 6 I will sing unto the LORD, because he hath dealt bountifully with me.
