Spencer's first Campout

So, we dropped Spencer off at his first official campout with the young men. The young men's president seemed excited when we dropped off Spencer and said - the weather report looked great. But no sooner than 30 minutes after we left as we drove to an alpine slide in the area with the rest of the family it was raining cats and dogs. Things dried up pretty quickly and we were able to slide a few times before it started raining again.  As we drove towards home it once again started to rain cats and dogs, including a little hail.

Tonight another storm blew threw this area (about 1.5 hours north of where Spencer is camping). There were heavy rains, thunder and lightning, which is not typical for this part of Germany (it's more like Seattle - a constant light drizzle).

Boy I am sure praying for him tonight. I never realized how anguishing such moments can be for a parent.
