RESCUED: Youth Camp 09!

So this past week I got to travel with our youth group as a counselor to Panama City Beach for camp! It was a great week and God really moved! We have 7 decisions for salvation just in our church and not sure how many overall. There were over 600 kids at the camp so it was a bit crazy but good. I had 5 amazing girls in my "family group" and they were wonderful. They immediately started calling me "mother duck" and it stuck all week! We had some great morning sessions and times of worship but also got to catch the rays at the beach!! Overall it was a great experience and I'm so glad I got to go with our youth!!
So I think this is where I got the name "Mother Duckling" - when they got in from the beach I had coloring books and crayons on the table as well as chips and rotel with cookies in the oven! :)
Soaking up the our one pieces of course!

I Can Hear the Bells...

I experienced my first role as Maid of Honor at my friend Sara's wedding this weekend!! It was SO exciting and sweet! Of course it was outside in the middle of June in Mississippi so it was also VERY hot but it turned out great! The dinner rehearsal was beautiful and although the wedding day was a bit crazy with setting up and taking down all the reception stuff, overall it went really well! Sara has been such a good friend and I'm so excited for her to start her life as a wife :)

Break-ins and a bucket list :)

Summer is finally here!! YAY!!! Since my mom has been sick for almost 4 weeks now my first several days included house duties - laundry (I don't think my dad understood the laundry process....clothes don't get magically put away by the laundry fairy after the dryer buzzes...we had piles and piles of clothes meeting me at the door, literally, when I got home for college), cooking, cleaning, grocery shopping...I can now get in and out of Walmart in less then 30 minutes...which I view as a talent! But I've really enjoyed being a little home-maker...even sewed on a button for my dad...just call me Martha Stewart!
But my mom and I were suppose to take a mommy-daughter trip to the beach with some friends but after taking her to the doctor in Mississippi and still not results I was forced to fly solo to the beach with the other girls! We still had lots of fun though and thankfully had LOTS of sunshine even though it was suppose to be a tropical storm! Thank you Lord for beautiful weather and sweet friends!!

Being REALLY lazy on the lazy river!
