Off to Camp

I'm going up to camp with Sara this week. It is a church camp for girls and it is all kinds of fun. I am using the future-post method to say goodbye for a few days. Which is funny, because sometimes I go for weeks without a post and do nothing. I guess blogging has finally gotten under my skin to the point where I feel weird if I haven't written in a few days.

This week was really lovely, so much so that it seems a little dreamy-it seems like more time has passed since school let out than actually has. The weather was incredibly pleasant, we had some very nice days of things to do with friends, visits from nephews, and time to relax. Life was definitely good. I had some trouble with the USB port on my computer, thus I have no photos yet of my day at the B&O Train museum or Evan's first swim meet. Both were lots of fun, though. I also had a seriously fun afternoon with Cami's boys. I didn't take any photos of that day, but most of the fun was in talking to those darlings anyway, so I'll try to remember some of our conversations.

So, by the time you read this, I'll be gone to beautiful Southwest-Central PA to Blue Knob State Park for 5 days of teen-aged girl hi-jinks. Last year I was up at Camp and did the food. I had some pretty frenetic posts about getting ready to run the kitchen and cook for 100 people for a week. This year I'm helping out in two ways-taking photos all week as Official Photographer and leading 13 of the girls on an overnight backpacking trip. Getting ready was MUCH easier. I'm actually looking forward to it instead of having anxiety attacks. I love taking pictures and I love walking in the woods and this week, I get to do both! So, have a lovely week and I'll be back soon with updates of life around here.

  6. I didn't realize that you were off kitchen duty this year. you did mention the backpacking but for some reason I was thinking it was before the actual week of girls camp. definitely less stress. :) And almost a mini-vacation. How cool to be the official Photographer! I'm sure there will be a great slideshow in store for the girls...
