Summer Golf Camp

by | Jun 25, 2012 | Golf, Precious Moments: 07 | 9 comments

I mentioned last week that our four oldest were participating in a summer golf camp.  Last year just our three oldest attended, since Chiquita had to miss since she wasn’t feeling well.  This year she was very excited to be able to attend.  The kids headed to the golf course each morning from 9-12, they were able to golf 9 holes afterwards on a few of the days, and on Friday they participated in their very first “golf tournament!”

For the tournament the 70+ children attending the camp were broken into three groups:  Advanced (9 holes), Intermediate (6 holes), and Beginner (3 holes).

Our girls played in the beginner group, and the boys played with the advanced (they had been moved up from intermediate early in the week).    Hubby had signed up as a volunteer (or rather I signed him up), and was assigned to keep score for the team that our girls played with, including one other cute little girl.  They were so fun to watch!

The forecast was predicting rain, but thankfully the downpour waited until the kids were finished and it just sprinkled here and there while we were out on the course.

Surprisingly, especially since my parents and so many of my brothers and sisters now play golf (one brother is headed to college in a year on a golf scholarship), this was my very first time walking a golf course!   One of these years I’d love to learn how to play too.  In the meantime it was sure fun to watch and snuggle with my little Bud.

 

I was amazed at how much the kids had learned over the week.  Our godson won first place in the tournament for the beginner group, Rascal was very excited about his 3 shot par, and Captain won the prize for the Most Improved and Inspirational Player for the week!

They all had such a great time that we decided to enroll them in a second week of golf camp, which began this morning at a different golf course.  This week’s camp is for children ages 5-16, so even our little Snuggles is now old enough to join the “big kids.”   Hubby was able to take them all this morning, and I stayed home with the two babies. (I’ll head to town in a little while to pick everyone up.) Rose just woke up and is eating her breakfast and Bud is still sleeping… (I’m sure he is extra tired after fussing most of the night… poor baby!)  It is so quiet around here I hardly know what to do with myself!  ðŸ˜‰

    Hello from St. Andrews the birthplace of golf! Although we are not golfers, I do enjoy watching or reading about golf. Our daughterc played the Old Course when she was a student at the university here in St. Andrews. Fencing was her passion. The pictures are so sweet of your little golfers. I remember taking my daughters to the golf camps…so many years ago. Love all of your birthday celebrations. Such a busy mother!

    No, I hadn't received it, and just found it (along with a whole bunch of other emails) in my spam folder. I have to get offline to go make dinner and get the kids to bed, but I will try and email you back soon. Thanks for visiting, and God Bless!

Prayer of Mothers

Father in heaven, grant me the grace to appreciate the dignity which you have conferred on me. Let me realize that not even the Angels have been blessed with such a privilege—to share in your creative miracle and bring new Saints to heaven. Make me a good mother to all my children after the example of Mary, the Mother of your Son. Through the intercession of Jesus and Mary I ask your continued blessings on my family. Let us all be dedicated to your service on earth and attain the eternal happiness of your kingdom in heaven. Amen.

A Little About Me

Hi! I'm Jessica, a Roman Catholic wife and home educating mother to our nine children. I was home educated myself, along with my eleven younger siblings. I have a special devotion to St. Therese, through whom I have been given much help and many blessings--the beautiful "Shower of Roses" that she has sent my way! Here I will record a few of the blessings I treasure. Please remember that what you see here is just a little glimpse at our lives, so please say a prayer for us, as we continue to strive for holiness.
