Unfortunately, I better go. It's time to head back to Lampe, MO. Sorry again for the limited post. And, facebook is still being lame about pictures. Every time I try to post some it doesn't work. I'll try again on my next time off. I have a 48 (two days off) at the end of this term, and I get to hang out with my mom!! I'm so excited!! Love you all and thanks for your continued prayers.

Sick and tired...
So this 24 I'm feeling a little under the weather....just one of those days. Allergies are killing me. Thankfully, I got some great rest last night. Two of our kampers and their families from last term invited us to stay the night with them at Big Cedar Lodge. They were so so sweet! And what a blessing! Beg Cedar is so beautiful and so refreshing. Lately, I've been feeling overwhelmed by the idea of staying here all summer. I don't know why that is...I mean, I've done it before. Not that I'm not enjoying it, but I'm finding myself having to rely on the Lord more and more for energy. I also feel like I've been taking this time here for granted sometimes. Sometimes I can't believe that I'm here and sometimes it feels like I've been here forever! I don't want to wish this time away! I love it. I'm going to blame the feelings of overwhelmedness on the new job. I have loved being a KPD, but it definitely pushes me out of my comfort zone sometimes. It is definitely a very flexible jobs, but also one of those jobs that, even thought you don't have something you are supposed to be doing at every moment of everyday, I feel like your still supposed to keep busy. Lately, even in life outside of kamp, I've noticed that it's been hard for me to be OK with free time and to use that time wisely. I'm slowly starting to figure it out...I know it may sound dumb, but that's just where I'm at. We got a new group of kampers a couple days ago. Austin's here!!! I'm so excited. It's so fun to have my little brother around. The new girls in my section are super cool. It has been so much fun to hang out with them already. They are so easy to interact with them....I needed that! I needed that motivation to be in cabins and spend time with girls, even though they are not necessarily in my cabin.
