Today I got a LIBRARY CARD!!!! That's cool, huh? I just read a British coookbook translated into Slovene. Three Lonely Planet travel guides--all to the wrong places. Boo. And 1/3 of the Complete Idiot's Guide to Handwriting Analysis. The other night I read half of Atonement by Ian McEwan (??) which is a bleak, empty book. I feel like I'm an atheist when I read it. That is very, very unpleasant. I woke up in the morning in a BAD mood. So I've jumped ship on that. Christina read the newest Harry Potter aloud for like 4 hours today while i cross-stiched. I get going really fast during fight scenes. A few days ago I finished The Freedom Writer's Diary. Sometimes I'd just sit and cry--but good cry--as I read. And under my bed, I'm keeping Principles of Language Learning and Teaching. Nerdy, but fascinating.

100% this is between camps. I never read this much. I only ventured outside once today. I don't even feel guilty, trapped or restless. Just book-wormy.

free hugs

These are our junior high kids after camp. We watched a "Free Hugs" video clip one day and they were inspired to do it themselves.

Cool, huh?

believe and you will see...

That's what Jesus said to the people standing outside of his friend's grave.
Then he said: "Lazarus, come out!"
And he came! WOAH.

Right now we're smack in the midst of Jr High camp. I forgot how much I love this age!!! (I don't love being 13, but I enjoy others who are!) (Whew.) Half adult, half child. Either the best of both or the worst of both, huh? This evening I got a taste of all the best in our discussion about Jesus raising Lazarus. Big questions...

My prayer for this camp is this: That each one of us--campers and staff--would
taste and see
that the Lord
is good.

more impressive!

It looks a little chaotic and believe me...it is! :) How the heck did I get here?

i can't hear you!

This is our camp theme song. Can't tell you how many times we've done this dance, heard this song, sung this song, etc, etc, etc...and somehow it's still fun! :)
