Off To Camp

Is it that time already? Time for the Hope All-Church Retreat? It seems like 2006's was a million years ago, and yet, I know it rolls around pretty quick.

So this year I scored, and instead of having to plan all the Children's Activities & Curriculum, I get to work with Steve Rentz on all the fun stuff - the Free Time Activities. We've got some bang up ideas planned, like Jenga with Consequences, Nighttime Capture the Flag, and a lot of game tournaments. Plus, Steve got us a Karaoke machine and one of those Gladiator jousting inflatable doohicky's. WOW!

Is it sad to say, though, that I just want to bring a book up there and relax? I am so tired, from working at the bakery, and planning this thing, and all kinds of other stuff that still is going in with Hope. The introvert in me doesn't even want to be around people. Being in a crowd of people, asking questions, wanting to talk and hang out, is the last thing that sounds appealing to me. I have become accustomed to just having a lot more quiet time, time to myself, lately. And that's how I like it.

YIKES!

Well, in any case, my wonderful small group is going, and I don't mind hanging out with them one bit. Or the Baileys, or Skreins, or Kirst and the kids. Oops, that's supposed to be a surprise. Hehehe.

Well in any case, I better get going. I have to go clean out my trunk so there's room for us all today, and then get to work. It's going to be a busy day!

You're not supposed to talk about it! Now I'm all sad and feeling left out. Promise me at least once you'll say "It's not as much fun without our friend K here!" I miss you and everyone from Hope and I really do hope you have fun. Just not too much fun. You have to save a bit of fun for my Welcome Home party!

Love you, be safe and enjoy the weekend!
