Summer is a season that all kids love! Our Children’s Place kids are no different. After a winter of brutal temperatures and lots of indoor activities, our children were ready for the great outdoors! For a month in late June and early July, we cleared out the Children’s Place and sent them packing……… to a summer house in the countryside! This was the second year that we were able to use this spacious home, surrounded by hills to climb, woods to explore, and local farmers to visit. We brought the children back to the Children’s Place in mid-July, energized and ready for their next adventure.

Three days after their arrival, our kids were visited by a team of friends from Norfolk, Virginia. That’s when the fun really began! There were games, skits, songs, crafts and even special gifts for all! Some very special bonds of friendship were formed and many tears shed when it came time for “Good-bye”. Thanks to all of our New Life team for demonstrating to our children just how special they really are!!

It was time
