Some Links, and our last week of camp

I already wrote this post and accidentally deleted it once. This is trifling. You'd think I'd learn my lesson and stop typing my posts directly into blogger - rookie lazy mistake.

Let's try this again.

I wish I could explain how elated I am to be sleeping in my own bed and home from camp again. I suppose I'm getting old and turning into even more of a homebody, because spending 4 (or more) weeks at camp would never have caused me such a back-ache in the past. My children, however, dont' seem as happy to be home. Neither of them will sleep (I got up at least eight times last night with one or the other. Not that I'm complaining. Ok actually I am complaining, cause I am flat tired). Also, Caden has asked me at least four times this morning if we can go to camp. 
We finished out camp last week with teen girls' week, which is historically not my favorite week of camp (that's teen boy week remember?). But it was a good week and I didn't have to bring any of my girls home for fighting this year, so I'm counting it as a win.

Jayci decided to act like a teen girl also this week and climb all the way to the top of the fifty foot rock wall. Geez, if she could just slow down with all the growing up already. At least she performed the feat in her adorable dress, with the helmet cocked over one eye cause it was maybe a little too big for her. 

Now that we're home and (ha) house-guest-free for a minute, I can only hope things might become more regular around here (ha again). But for now, a few things you should read from around the internets the last few weeks.

Rain Down Revival - from Beth Moore

Read this, seriously y'all - Carry On: Why I Stayed. 

I've also been reading my way through these articles by DL Mayfield. Yes please.

  1. OK, so I had so many thoughts as I was reading, but when I got to the food fight picture I could not believe what I was seeing. I can't believe your teen girls didn't mind getting crap in their hair! All the teen girls I know of African American decent would FREAK the heck out at something like that. I am going to show this to them this week. WOW. They must be young and not picky about their hair to go for something like that.

    The kids are adorable. That wall looks so hight. I am glad you can get a good nights sleep on your mattress. I wish you could sleep for 8 entire hours. Darn it. I always let Kaish sleep with me. Maybe that is why we did not have sleeping issues : ).

    Happy Monday Beck.
