Let The Blogging Begin!

Thursday, October 23, 2008

Well...I guess we are about 4 years late on this blogging thing, but we thought we would give it a try anyway. More than a blog though, we wanted a place where the K-Kountry family could connect throughout the year. Where kids, parents, staff, and friends could stay updated on what is happening in the K-Kountry world. We have a big vision for this thing and hope that it will not only be informational, but a little piece of kamp throughout the year.

From funny videos of K-Kountry skit characters to updates on the road to stories on K-Kountry kids, familes, and staff...we plan on this being a "one-stop shop" for all things K-Kountry. In the summer, we even hope to post daily to let you know what God's doing inside those big red barn doors! As always, we love your feedback and suggestions on how we can serve you guys better. Please send us your stories, pictures, and updates and we'll do our best to get them on this thing.

Let the blogging begin!
