CSUN Winter Retreat

This is the amazing house we had our GOC winter retreat at this past weekend in Pine Mountain. It was 3 stories, had a pool, pool house, and barn. The inside was beautiful- fireplaces, game rooms, and views of the mountains from the big windows. We packed 40 people inside for the weekend, and had a great time!
Cat was a doll, and organized all the food. What a huge help! Maddie liked calling her "Caty"- they are buds!
There was always lots of help in the kitchen!
Holly and Rach- there was lots of great time to fellowship.
And music time- Savannah loved jamming!
Carbohydrates!!! Thanks ladies for all your help!
Alain taught some people how to chop wood, which is much harder than it looks. (I can testify to that, since I was one of the people that tried it out!)
Madison couldn't get enough "rock climbing" in!
Yeah, I think he's cute!
And so is she :)
A little practicing before the session.
Madz loved watching this group play spoons. Can you see Savannah sleeping on the couch in the background? She slept through so much noise!!

Rach with her spoon talents!
Steve made the ultimate smore!
The fire pit was a huge hit! Maddie didn't want any smores, just chocolate!
One of the living rooms became chess central.
Do You Love Your Neighbor?
The guys made Sunday morning breakfast- way to go!!
Everyone listening to...
Jesse, who taught through the book of Esther this weekend.
I'm thankful my two girls were so loved and taken care of by these sweet students in our Bible study. The Johnson family had a wonderful weekend with the CSUNers!!

Charis saw that up-close picture of Savannah and said, "I wish that was real!" (Me too!)
