Probably the death of my grandmother and the deaths of two friends from high school, Jesse and Max. Those event shaped a great part of who I am through the mourning process.

Week 3 of camp is about to start. I get to see my bestie Christine tonight and I get to go work at Disney this upcoming weekend. It's gonna be a great week!
I am going to try to look only at the positives this week and not the negatives. This will be a new experience for me. I'm not necessarily a negative person but I tend to see the negative situations when I should be looking at the positive situations.
Hope everyone has a great week! :)

This week at camp was a great week! Had some disciplinary issues but outside of that it really was a fun week. In devotions, we taught about the miracle of "water to wine at the wedding" or also known as Jesus' first recorded miracle. It was a great lesson for the kids.
Monday- We went to LaserQuest which is ALWAYS fun time. My code name was "thrillpoints" from the movie last week...haha. All of the girl counselors did names from that movie and then ganged up on the kids as an alliance. It was great!
Tuesday- We went to Boomers in Dania Beach. A lot of really funny things happened here. I had a kid lose his bag and I found it and when I opened it, there were angry birds keychains in it! So I wore one for the rest of the day. Coolest keychains ever. Just saying. And then I had a kid ask me and one of the other counselors if we were "lovebirds" because we hang out a lot. It definitely made me laugh. Kids say such funny things. And then I worked out with Mario and Billy later this day. Well...actually...I ran an extra mile while I watched Mario try to train Billy in crossfit. It was pretty funny.
Wednesday- We went to see Kung Fu Panda 2 in the theatres and it was such a cute movie with a great message in it. It was even used as an example in church later that night at Calvary. I liked that. I went to Calvary with Chris and Matt and it was a great service. Steve Williams from the pastoral team spoke. It was my first time listening to him and he was so funny.
Thursday- This was our Backwards Day theme day. I dressed in PJs (get it? wore my night clothes during the day?). I had a camper dress up like me and she did a pretty good job! Braids, birth mark and all! :) I was very flattered. Then, I got told by another camper that I am "scary" when I play foursquare with the kids because I take no mercy and get everyone out! Made my day!!! haha
Friday- We went to Deerfield Beach for the day and it was so much fun. Woody came to visit and all of the campers just loved it! They all miss him and so do the counselors. He was such a hard worker. Hopefully he will come back and work for the camp in the future. I also got very very sunburnt even after putting sunscreen on several times! Boo!
Well this was a glimpse of week 2 of camp. Hopefully you enjoyed this and laughed along. Leave me some love if you did! :)

So, the first week of camp is done with. This is how the breakdown went, with some funny comments/stories attached to it!
Monday: Went over camp rules, registration, etc. Didn't have a devotion or anything planned for the first day so me and the girls just kinda chilled and learned about each other during devotions. Then we had lunch and went ice skating. At ice skating, a kid forgot his socks so Melody let him borrow hers right off of her feet and he proceeded to tell me that her socks were "nice and soft." So funny to hear that from a 12 year old boy. Hehe.
Tuesday: We went to Kabooms which is like an arcade type of place. Same kid borrowed Melody's socks again and it was just funny to me because I half expected him to comment AGAIN on how he liked her socks so much. Lost a kid, found him....that was interesting. Learned that 7th grade girls are not as innocent as they appear (one of them was talking about a term I had never heard, looked it up on UrbanDictionary to learn that it was something VERY inappropriate.)
Wednesday: Went to the movies to see Judy Moody and the Not Bummer Summer which was a HUGE bummer of a movie that led to us getting 1000 negative thrill points (inside joke with the movie).
Thursday: Super hero theme day at camp. Kid wore an army outfit complete with a vest and was so determined to go upstairs and get his vest after being told "NO" many times. Also got told by a boy in 7th grade that I either "got smaller or he got bigger" and I said, well I didn't get any shorter...and he goes "well...I mean....you got skinnier?" as he blushed. Haha, it was priceless because he was legitimately embarrassed.
Friday: We went to Coconut cove which is a waterpark and it was great fun. I just wish we would have stayed longer. We only stayed for about 2.5 hours. Also, learned how to play "Dutch Blitz" which is an insanely fun card game that I am addicted to now. And i had to give first aid to a counselor..(NOT a camper, but a counselor instead) because he scraped his back in the lazy river.
So that was basically the week in a very small nutshell. I will try to keep updating as the summer progresses. Hope everyone is having a great weekend! :)
