What's All The Excitement About?

     K, so. I'm not being super consistent here, but I think by now you have learned to expect that from me:) 
My life lately has been anticipation and a giant build-up. Oh ho, so you ask what this anticipation is for? 
Dun, dun, DUN!
 So yeah. I've been organizing and packing and contacting people about job possibilities and getting excited watching videos from last year of the college...
 Also, quite a bit of praying and trusting God has been going on for me:)
 Which is fantastic, because I feel closer to Him than ever before! It's such a wonderful feeling; knowing that HE has everything worked out and planned for me.
It's super far away, can you guess where? 
Yeah, that's what I thought too: Holy guacamole! That's so far away! 
But truly, I believe this is what will be best for me. I won't have to borrow any money this year! Which is a HUGE praise! :D And I'm flying out there in a little more than a week with my parents. 
 Wow. Just to think, last year I was all excited that I got to visit, and now I'm almost there to stay!
(These photos are from when we flew out there last year to visit. There was so much to shoot! At the college I was so impressed by just... Everything! I can hardly wait!)
Happy Tuesday!

A Week Of Growth

So much happened this past week; it was lovely.

The theme at Camp JIM was "Extreme Renovation" and boy did God renovate ME! I kinda didn't expect that. I was all like, "Yay, I'll work at camp for the first time and help kids!" Ha, I was the one who was helped too:)
I met so many wonderful people, reunited with others, and grew in my faith so much! It was an amazing summer; it seemed to go by in a whirlwind of excitement, hard times to work through, and fantastic Christian fellowship and so many new friendships:) 
I got home and was just tired. Emotionally, spiritually, and physically! But I had FUN. Even through the problems and troubling things, the other counselors and staff were so encouraging:) God taught me SO much and I hope I was able to help others as well!
I'm thanking God for all the people working at camp and praying for them all! 

Allison had tons of fun with my camera and took this picture as well as quite a few other ones that I love;)

I am praying that I'll be able to work next year, too! :D
Later y'all, I'm going to sleep!

Before The Excitement Begins

Later today I'm leaving for camp! I just got back (on Sunday) from attending camp, now I'm going to work there!
Seriously fun stuff there, guys. At Camp Jim, I mean :D
These photos are a small peek at what I've been doing this past week:)
My dog had puppies (praising God that they're all sold to wonderful homes) and they are almost five weeks old. So yeah, that's been fun and interesting:)
For our Fourth of July we had a campfire, set off some fireworks, ate a special cake that my sister made (it was red and blue with whipped cream frosting and cherries on top. Just YUM.), and generally talked and laughed.
This photo would've been perfect if he had moved the sparkler a little to the side, but, this way is interesting I suppose:P
     Yes, I love puppies, so they deserved another picture:) This one is "Tonka." He just has to be the cutest, of course, I say that about all of them, but... 
     Oh, and this post is named such because I am so excited for camp! My first time being a counselor. So, I'll need a lot of prayer you guys, working with 8 to 10 year-old's can be super fun but it's a lot of responsibility for me. 
     Before the excitement begins, I must pack:)
See ya soon raccoon!
