Where I'm going in 5 days!?!?! :)

Hint: It is a completely land-locked state!

I love my job!!!

I absolutely LOVE my job! :) I defiantly never thought I would say that about a job, but I love my job at Kids on the Move! I love going in every morning and seeing the smiling faces of my kids. I love the random hugs just because...I think those are my favorite! :) I love all the little pictures and bracelets they make me. Trust me--after just a week I've accumulated 6 or 7 bracelets, and lots of colorings and pictures! When I was younger I used to make bracelets and anklets and necklaces out of string, and this week I've learned some really cool new ways to make them! :)

I will praise you, O LORD, with all my heart; I will tell of all your wonders. Psalms 9:1

First Day of Work

Today was my first day of Work at First Baptist Church of Windmere's "Kids on the Move" program and I loved it! It was so much different than my previous experience at Disney on my first day and I'm so thankful for that! Kids on the Move is like a day camp for kids whose parents work during the day. We go on field trips and have special events every week, which is really cool!

I can tell I am going to be much happier working! I get to be around kids all day and teach them of the love of Jesus Christ, I get to play games almost all day, and it is 5 minutes from my house! How much more could you want? :) I am so thankful that the Lord provided a job for me doing something I really enjoy! Yay!

Happy Father's Day, to the greatest Dad in the World! I love you Daddy!

Fathers, do not exasperate your children; instead, bring them up in the training and instruction of the Lord

Lake Day

Okay!!! I'm back for real this time! Summer is in full bloom and we've been enjoying our days out of school! Today Bryce and I were out on the lake with some friends, Logan and Lauren Cole. I just got my new camera, so I brought it along and took some pictures!

BB and Lauren on the tube.

I hadn't been tubing in a long time and I'd forgotten how much fun it was! :) BB, Lauren and I had a great time!

This is Bryce's friend, Logan, tubing. When I tell you he is good at tubing, I mean it! If there were such a thing as professional tubing (haha) then he could be a professional tuber! He out on a show when it was his turn! He could make himself go really high and he would do tricks! He never once fell off either! This looks like a bad fall... but this is Logan doing a barrel roll with the tube! It was so cool!

Bryce 'scurfed' instead of tubing. Scurfing is like surfing, but you are behind a boat! It is all new to me--this is the first time I've seen him do it. The rope was tied up so he is real close to the boat. He starts with rope and then throws it in when he feels like the wake of the boat is carrying him. It was really cool! Maybe I'll try it one day :)

I'm still here!

I have been very unfaithful on my blogging lately! It has been a long time since I last updated! Well the Truth is... I've been with out a camera since the last day of school, when, sadly, my camera broke. :( So all my pictures since then have come from my moms camera. Luckily my camera problem was fixed! A family friend got us a great deal on a really nice HP digital camera, and so now I have a camera! So hopefully now I will be more consistent in my blogging and get a real update up real soon!

Camp Orlando

It has taken me all day to get this posted. I've been unpacking and doing laundry for most of the day! Camp was so much fun! The theme of the camp was 'Make every second count!' And it was based off a TV show called 24. The services were awesome, over 40 kids were saved!! Praise the Lord!!! We had a service in the morning where Ben Trueblood was the speaker. And the night services were lead by the Senior pastor of our church, Pastor David.

We had free time from 1 to 6 everyday. They had tons of activities! We could swim, play volleyball, basketball, or football, there was a rock climbing wall, there was paint balling, and one day there was mud wrestling! I defiantly was not planning on getting in the mud pit, but while I was taking pictures, I was attacked by a group of people and dragged into the mud! We played tug-o-war too!

We got out of the evening service around 9:30 and then had something called 'late night' One night they had big blowup things, another night we had a talent show, and the last night we had a birthday party for Pastor David!
The services at night were amazing. Pastor David is such a great speaker, and he touched the hearts of many students! His messages were very deep and had a major impact on me! I can't even put into words how much had an impact on me! At the end of the week more than 40 people were saved, and were baptized Friday night! Because we were in a church, there was no Baptismal pool, so they were baptized in a 'horse trough!' When each person was raised from the water we all cheered and shouted and rejoiced with them! It was so exciting!I am still recovering from the lack of sleep from all the late night talks and early mornings! It was was all worth it, to see all the lives that were changed by Camp Orlando! Our God is so awesome and He has opened my eyes up to so many things this week! The main focus of our cabin leader was to help us deepen our walk with the Lord to prepare us for next year. I came away from camp feeling more closer to the Lord than ever! I am so glad I went to camp this year!
And we, who with unveiled faces all reflect the Lord's glory, are being transformed into his likeness with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the spirit.
2 Corinthians 3:18
