July 24

I had an amazing birthday today! I started it off with teaching kindergartners at VBS, and honestly there is no better way that I would want to start off my birthday! I love being around kids. Later in the day I was brought to my Aunts house for a surprise party that my dad planned for me.

July 18

We went camping last week with my moms side of the family, so that was a lot of fun. While we were sitting at the beach I wrote a short little poem, so here it is. 

I've seen a lot of pain
and I have shed lots of tears
but I've seen beauty
that overcomes all my fears
although there is pain in this world
God finds ways to take that pain away
He cares for us way too much
to let us fall astray. 

Next week is VBS! I'm leading a class of Kindergartner's with my friend. It's also my birthday on Wednesday! I'll be turning 16 so I could get my drivers license but I still need to get 18 more hours in of driving sooo, I don't think that will be happening(:

July 7

We just got back from camping today with the small group, it was a lot of fun! I could seriously just go camp for the whole summer. I love it. However, I could do without the misquotes. I counted 52 misquote bites today, and I'm really hoping I don't have poison ivy again! When we were camping we went through bike trails, went to the beach, and sat around the camp fire. It was really fun. Oh, and I have to mention my amazing experience of carrying a 22 pound bag of ice back to our camp sight from the camp office. So, my dad sent me down to get some ice with my brother and a couple of our friends there. The ice was held at the check-in office of the camp, so it was a trip up there. We rode our bikes and didn't really think about how we were going to get the ice back. I wasn't going to walk the ice back and come back for my bike... that would have taken wayyy too long. So, I set the ice on my bike handle bars so that the front side of the ice was sticking over my handle bars and the back end of the ice was sticking out towards me. I bit the end of the ice with my teeth so that it would stay and then rode off like that. It worked really well! And, one of the camp rangers saw me and told me that I had talent. Sooo yeah. that was fun.
We leave again for camping on Thursday with our family, so we're all really looking forward to that!
