Last weekend we went to a "Family Retreat" that the Brothers of St. John organized at a ranch in Buda. It was SO much fun. We got to sleep on a little tent:
There were about 50 families....with their kids! There were A LOT of tents!
The kids were so lucky! I wish something like this existed when I was growing up! It was huge, I'd never seen something like that:
And they also had a field to play soccer.
The Families were separated into groups and rotated from one station to the other. On station was just fun, playing soccer etc. The next station was Adoration with the Sisters of St. John...it was beautiful, they would sing and say things that helped me concentrate better. I was impressed watching the kids all very silent and still, praying in from of Jesus. it was Great!
And the other station was Catechism. One of the Brothers talked about some Eucharistic miracles and why Adoration is REALLY important.
The kids got to swim afterwards. And I forgot to mention that they had Adoration ALL night the night before. We got to spend time with Jesus in the middle of the night.
I hope one day we can go there with two tents and lots of kids running around!
