Homeward Bound

I am currently posting this from Phoenix International Airport. My next flight leaves at 2:40 and then I'll be back home! As fun as my trip was, home sounds so good right now. I stayed an extra day to catch some good weather in the Florida pan-handle and it was totally worth it. I have a horrible sun burn that hurts like crazy, but I loved every minute of my long day in the sun yesterday. We were in Orlando earlier in the week (I'll be posting pictures in the next few days) and then we drove back up to the pan-handle where my family lives. We ate sea food, had really good snow-cones and had a blast riding jet skis in the sound. The water in the Gulf of Mexico makes you think of the Caribbean and the sand makes the hills look covered in snow. I'm so thankful to have gotten to take this trip and spend time with my extended family. I am also very thankful that my travel has gone smoothly today. Flying stand-by can be very stressful, but today it has been effortless. Once I get my pictures organized, I'll post some for you.

My Camp Experience

Of all the years I've been going to summer camp, this year was probably one of the best. Being a counselor is much more fun and fulfilling than being a camper. My girls and I had an excellent week and I can't wait to do it again next year. I didn't take a ton of pictures, but I will have pictures in my next post because I'M GOING TO FLORIDA! I am so excited. I'll be at Universal Studios in Orlando for three days and then back to my cousin's house, which is right on the beach in the Gulf of Mexico. I can't wait. I leave tomorrow, and I'll be back on the 18th, hopefully. I'm taking my computer on this trip, so I'll keep you posted. This is what summer is all about. Fun trips and enjoying the company of people you love. This is probably my last free summer for a long time, since I will probably have to get a job next summer, so I am going to enjoy every minute of it. Are you all enjoying summer as much as I am? I really hope so.

One Busy Bee

So, I'm here to say hi, but then say goodbye right after. This week has been crazy busy, and the busy-ness continues! My mom and I left for New Mexico early Monday morning. Tuesday and Wednesday, I was at the university getting oriented and registering for classes. I found out who my roommate is and got her contact information, so things are moving along nicely on that front. I'm getting more and more excited for college! I think it's going to be a great four years. (Because I WILL graduate in four years. People keep saying that it takes five nowadays, but I refuse to be in school longer than I need to be, unless something happens...) We came home late on Wednesday, and then I spent Thursday with a friend and yesterday I took my siblings to see Transformers 3. (Excellent movie, by the way. So amazingly epic. I loved it.) I'm leaving again tomorrow for camp. I am going to be a counselor for the junior high kids at my church. It should be a fun/interesting experience. Have an amazing 4th of July! God Bless America!
