Summer Daze...

Do you remember those summer days as a kid that seemed to drag on and on with lazy mornings and afternoons of swimming and lounging? I miss those days. Summers are nothing like that in the youth ministry world- quite the opposite, in fact. There is much to love about a youth ministry summer, but I sometimes daydream about what it would be like to have the gift of unscheduled time. I would start by swimming until I got all pruny. :)




Since my blogging is chronically sporatic, I'll give you some all-important life updates.




1. I am in my 26th week of pregnancy- ALREADY. Wow. That is 6 months according to "What to Expect When You're Expecting" and 7 months according to Babyzone.com. I am completely confused by the whole system anyway, so it's no surprise to me that there is no consensus on the month-thing. Maybe I'll just start counting down the actual days. We have 105 of them until Baby H's ETA.




2. Last week I accidentally kicked a dead rat covered in maggots with my bare toes. It was as gross as it sounds and I am forever scarred.




3. I leave in 5 days for one of my all-time favorite summer events: CAMP! I love it despite the vicious wasps and balmy east Texas weather.




4. I just got back from the Blanks Family's 2nd annual "Homecation." The motto for our event: "Less fuel. More fun." We played games, ate until we were stuffed, and laughed at our own dumb jokes for 3 whole days. Awesome.





This is my cutie group of 7th graders on our mission trip in June. They were so much fun.

Have fun at camp! I'm jealous...while yes, it's nice to be home for the summer, it's really easy to get into a habbit of doing nothing. I love camp and mission trips! That's going to be a blast.

You're right...you haven't been too much of a blogger, but now that the bun is in the oven, you have important information to share! I am sooo excited for you guys! I doubt you will have much time to baby plan with the busy summer...I hope you've got the nursery in order. :)
