-summertime in list form-

The day after tomorrow is the official start of the happy chaos that we call summer camp. Okay, for the most part, it’s not exactly chaotic, but when I try to imagine being personally in charge of it all, ‘chaos’ is the word that comes to mind. I’m thankful for a competent group of leaders and staff members who work together and run this camp program.

This summer I will be:

– working 2 days a week at the bakery
– babysitting one day a week for sweet little Miles (who will probably be walking by the time my own kiddos start back to school!)
– in charge of the snack shop.  Keeping shelves and coolers stocked; and tallying up camper snack shop cards in the evenings. This also may call for a midsummer trip to Lexington with my friends to get more supplies from Sam’s Club. 🙂
– Since I can’t seem to keep myself out of the camp kitchen, I’m sure you’ll find me there during a lot of my “free time.”
– I’ve got flower beds to take care of… and Roger planted a bunch of vegetables that I get to weed until they’re ready to harvest… I like to weed.
-I’ve got a couple of projects that I need to finish up for our camp auction in August.
– There will be countless hours spent either cleaning up after my dirt-loving children, or being disciplined enough to take the time to make them clean up after themselves.
– I just bought myself a really big book that I hope to be spending a lot of time with in the next couple of weeks.
– Look how low I’ve sunk. I’ve spent so much time not blogging that when I finally sit down to do it, I end up writing a list that bores even me.
– You can stop reading this list now.
– I’m gonna go vacuum the study.

    You seriously amaze me! When I think of all you and Roger do with the camp, the church and your own family, work at the bakery..etc, the garden and animals— it makes my head spin!
    I will be praying that the Lord bless all of you and will have His hand over this whole camping season.
    Looking forward to seeing you when we bring the kids down!
