I'm Off Once Again

Well it seems like I just got home but...I'm off to church camp.
I am now officially old enough to be a counselor. YAY! Now I get to wear the grown up wrist band! Not only am I in charge of my own cabin (with my sister's help of course) I am also the music leader. I always get so nervous because music is a very important aspect of church camp.
I want it to be fun, but not too crazy. I don't want it to be hard for the 3rd graders, but too easy and boring for the 6th graders. Know what I mean? So if you could pray for me during this week, that would be wonderful. I am not just a camp person...I don't like the rustic living, bugs, heat, and thunder storms. But in the end it is worth it because I know I have helped the camp out and pleased God. That's all that matters in the end right? :)
So good bye once again fellow readers.

High Hopes and Big Dreams

So like I said, I'm home....but not only that:
I'm GRADUATED!
Our homeschool graduation ceremony was yesterday.
It was a perfect day for a picnic celebration!
How we did it was each graduate would go up with their parents to give a little
speech and receive a diploma.
Here I am delivering my little speech. I'm pretty much thanking everybody in my life.
I believe I was the only graduate not to cry during my or my parents speech.
I have a heart of stone. ;p
Afterwords we took pictures with alot of people.
Here I'm with Beth and her sister Emily. This is my familia!
Here is us five graduates. All girls. The 5 amigas.
Now we are acting all gangsta and cool. Time to partayyy!
Us in our pretty dresses.
Pop the foot! If any guys had graduated with us we couldn't have done this!
My table where my senior pictures were set up and such.
Beth wanted me to open my gift there. It ended up being a picture album full of
photos she took while in Summit, since I lost all of mine.
Such a sweet idea. :)
Me, Rebecca (r), and Megan(l) who are also graduates and really good friends of mine.
We are wearing our class shirts...which I designed!! How cool is that?
This is the back of the shirts.
After most of the people left, we went to go play on the playground.
Yeah, we are cool like that.
So yeah, we had great time together. It was a great day full of friends and family, yum yum food, fun pics, great weather, pretty dresses, big accomplishments, high hopes and dreams.....and playing on the playground.
CLASS OF 2011 BABY!!!

No Place Like Home.....

.....except Summit!!
****************************
Man do I miss that place! Like a little oasis on top of a hill,
away from the everyday stress of life.
I must say, I recommend Summit to every one of my readers.
The speakers, literature, atmosphere, fellow students, staff, food, everything is epic.
I truly felt God working on my life here, in many different ways.
Like I said earlier, my camera and stuff got stolen so I don't really have any pictures.
If I end up posting any, they belong to other people.
Anyways, glad to be home. Glad to be back to the blogger world.
Missed ya'll.
