What is Camp Isaac?

Camp Isaac is what Anthony used to call ‘us’.

The two of us and the plethora of small children.

Who are we?


Bonnie.
Mama.
That’s me :o)
The one who changes diapers, does a bazillion loads of laundry every week, constantly sweeps and mops the floors even though it doesn’t seem to help. The one who oversees homework, shuttles kids to and from school and t-ball, and goes on massive grocery shopping stock-up trips. The one who loves her mini-van and would drive it whether or not she had any kids. The one who desperately wishes for ‘me time’ more than twice a year so she could do more scrapbooking and more sleeping. The one who adores photography and taking pictures and hopes to someday be good enough to make a living from it. The one who brushes matted morning hair and searches for lost shoes and is always trying to get more organized, usually to no avail.
That’s me.
The Mama.
And I wouldn’t have it any other way!

Acen is predeceased by his great-great-grandfather, “Pop” John Yoder; and his great-grandfathers, Thomas E. Babcock and “Cookie Monster” Edward Demick. Acen is survived by his wonderful, loving daddy, Drew Demick; his little sister, Serenity “Reny” Demick; his biological mother, Jessica Demick of Colorado; his great-great-grandmother, “Nana” Esther Yoder; and his great-grandmother, “Bopchi” Shirley Demick of Vestal; his grandparents, “Popa” Edward and “Mommy” Patti Ruland; his aunts and uncle, Arielle, Shayla, Kayana, Cambri and Chancelor Ruland of Johnson City; his “Uncy Tom” Thomas and aunt Lori Babcock and cousins, Thomas Babcock and Rachel Warfel of Vestal; his aunt and uncle, “Aunt Rhea” Debora and Darin Bunch and cousins, Acen Davia and Cadmen Bunch of South Carolina; along with many other distant relatives and close friends. Acen was a bright, beautiful young man with a zest for life and brought blessed joy to all he met. He was our little man, looking forward to starting kindergarten and soccer and was a member of the Johnson City Wrestling Club. Acen will be missed by all as he joins Jesus to become our littlest angel with his grandfathers in heaven. We love you, Acen, and know you will always be with us until we can be with you again.
