On Your Side

So we don't even use Nationwide for our insurance, but this video is HILARIOUS. Haha. Just something to brighten your day. :)

Fun in the Summer Sun? Nah.


Well. I am supposed to be on the way to Student Camp with our church right now. But... I am at home. sitting in a chair. With antibiotics and a sore throat to blame. Anyways, I am supposed to be leaving tomorrow afternoon, so I hope that works out! I'm not quite sure why this is happening now, but I know God knows and that's all that matters.

So far, summer is still going well. Other than the whole being sick thing, but if you know me, that's nothing new. ;)

1. I have been SO busy with babysitting, that I have not even had time to think! Crazy...

2. Yesterday my brother and sister-in-law came over for lunch, and we all skyped with my sister in Africa! I had talked with her once before, and she seemed to be doing SO well. She really loves it over there! She is definitely in her element. God is going to do some amazing things with that girl. I'm proud to call her my sister.

3. Last week was the Southern Baptist Convention, and some major things happened. The Great Commission Resurgence Document passed with flying colors in the convention, and while all that might not mean a thing to you, just know that God is working in the hearts and lives of Southern Baptists just like He is working in the lives of the people of Malawi, Africa, and all over the world. We serve an incredible God, and everybody should hear about how He has saved them!

Well, this was pretty much the most boring post, ever, but oh well. I guess I will go take some medicine or something like that. Ugh. I hate being sick. At least I get to go to camp tomorrow!

See you when I get back!

Better Late Than Never

Hey there!

Well... I am officially one of the worst bloggers there is. But in my defense, I have been super busy. School ended, and SUMMER started! LOVE LOVE LOVE it. Except for the intense sunburn that I got on the VERY first day of Summer. If you have known me for any amount of time, you know that my skin is pretty much sun-resistant. I start out snow white, turn tomato red, and then go back to white... and the cruel cycle continues. Never ever will I be tan. Better come to terms with that now. Darn you, Sun. ;)

A lot has been going on around here lately... Here are some quick updates.

1) School Ended. THANK GOODNESS! After finals were all over, it was such an awesome feeling. I barely kept my "A" in Algebra 2, and even though I ended that class with a 91, an "A" is an "A", and that is all that counts! We also got our Summer Reading Assignment, and the book we have to read is titled, On Writing Well. Anybody ever read it? It is literally about "writing well"... We will see how that goes. Obviously, I also have to write a paper at the end of reading the book. Oh, the dreaded Summer reading...

2) When Summer actually started, I think we (all of my friends and I) were all SO worn out that we haven't even spent very much time together yet. But... I know that it will soon start! I started babysitting this morning, and I am excited to do that for the rest of the Summer, too.

3) Student Camp was planned to be at Orange Beach, AL this year, but because of that stinkin' oil spill it was moved to Camp Windermere in Roach, MO. Definitely not the beach, but I think we will still have a ton of fun. Can't wait for camp!!!

4) Last week was my Grandma's 90th birthday, so all of my cousins, aunts, uncles, etc. came into town! We had a blast, all together. Also, my brother, sister-in-law, and nephew came home! I couldn't believe how much that little nephew of mine has grown! He is too cute. I already miss everybody being here! Just me, mom, and dad now. :( Pretty lonely around here now!

5) On Sunday, my sister left on a Summer internship that is in Malawi, Africa. You can keep up with her blog here... She will be in Malawi for 8 weeks helping with Esther's House Orphanage. She is SO excited and I am SO excited for her! :)

Well... Tonight we have Wednesday night church, so I am going to head out! I promise that it will not be as long before I blog again! Talk to you soon!
