In a Nut Shell....

Alright so I'm feeling so guilty right now.
I haven't written a post in over a month and pretty much deserted Blogger in general.
Life has just been crazy....good....but crazy.
And I thought summer was for relaxing...... pish posh!
So here is a really quick rundown on what I have been up to during the month of June.
Well it was my little sissy's Sweet Sixteen!!!
She had a groovy little party.
Today is actually my birthday...but no party this year.
I let her do all the partying since 16 is sweeter than 19. :)
My sister and I were counselors at Junior Church Camp.
We had an awesome cabin full of awesome girls. And of course we were the coolest cabin leaders ever!!!!
I loved getting to know each and every girl. They were a hoot!!
Justin Beiber even visited our cabin! We were that special. ;)
Actually it wasn't him...but it was fun messing around with people.
Emi and I were also the worship leaders for the entire camp, so it wasn't exactly relaxing and we had alot of responsibility, but it was a week to remember. Next was the mission trip with Ocoee Outreach in TN. This is my 4th year going, and most likely (and sadly) my last. But it was a fantastic week.This year the adults of our church who were roofing were working on the same house the youth were painting. So we all got to be together!
We also did VBS at this very tiny church. It wasn't a big turn out, but the kids who came
enjoyed it so much and thought it was so special.
Emi and I also helped out our new youth pastor/music minister with worship and a youth rally held at a local church. It was totally last minute, but it turned out pretty well.
There was also live music at a block party we organized. Over all I enjoyed hanging out with my youth group and getting to know everyone better.
I believe that we all grew closer on this special trip.
So as you can see, Emi and I have been very busy this month.
Can you forgive me for not blogging? ;)
And I promise I will start reading yours again.
