Back to Houston

We got back to Houston late afternoon on Tuesday. We have started camp follow up and our past few mornings have been filled with doughnuts, high school kids, and Jesus. It's been real fun to say "see you tomorrow" everyday to these guys.

We had our 2nd baby doctor appointment today. I don't know why but I was on pins and needles just hoping everything was ok. Ok I do know why, it's cause I'm really bad at taking my pre-natal vitamins and I wasn't showing as much as I thought I should be. Probably cause I'd been comparing my belly to Sharon Clark, who is a week behind me BUT is also on her third child. Anyways my pins and needles were false alarm. The doctor said the heartrate was great, that my uterus was growing, and everything seemed to being going great. Just need to start gaining weight. Normally, you would think this is the best news ever. Today I had 2 doughnuts, cheap chinese food for lunch, and greasy mexican for dinner and I feel like I'm going to explode. Don't know how long I'll be able to keep this up. We go back to the doctor in 3 weeks to find out the sex!! BOY OR GIRL???? we both think it's a boy.

Buddy and Kathie got here today! We gave them a small tour of niche of town, then went to our fave mexican place, Lupe Tortilla's. Of course, they admitted to never having anything like it. Welcome to Texas people.

We've been staying at my friend Jen's parents house since we got back in town and we're moving into our apartment tomorrow! I could not be more ready to have our nest back. And to have a dishwasher!!!! Ahhhh!!! This could save Will and I from many many fights. Happy Moving Day to us!

My B

Ok so I did take a bunch of pictures last week of camp, BUT the internet began to become super slow and I became impatient with uploading pictures so I gave up. Sorry. I'll upload them when we get home.

Then, this week began. The week we've been waiting for for awhile now. Our new high school came as campers on our last week here. I was nervous to begin the week. I just didn't know what kind of lives I would be walking into.

Come to find out, I can't imagine a week going any better than it has. It had it's hard times and conversations, but it has made Will and I so so excited to go back to Houston with these folks.

Will said it best, "You've come alive this week." I believe that to be true. The Lord has had this in store for us for a long time.

Day 1

For those of you who aren't too familiar with the daily life of what happens at Young Life camp during one full week I've decided to document each day, and this week only folks. We are here for four weeks. Today was the beginning of Week 3. 

Woke up around 9. We had all camp worship where the Assign Team, Work Crew, Summer Staff, Interns, and Property Staff all get together to sing and hear from our Camp Director. We pray for the areas across the U.S. who are about to arrive in camp in less than a couple of hours. The time is always sweet. 

After brunch, I head out to babysit these 2... Hayley and Abby. It was good practice.

Here is Devon and Will as Jescoe and Jasper White "The Dancin' Outlaws" and in the middle, Steve Gardner, our Speaker and Friend.

This is Steve's son, Grant, who lives for dessert and dinosaurs.

Here is Will, Devon, and Justin introducing the places and activities you can do in camp.

They play some games to get the kids running around and meeting some new people.

We had some surprise guests!! Our good friends, The Harris'!

We have club every night except for wednesday when it's in the morning.
In club we sing songs... at times crowd surf.

We play some games. Will has had the idea for these game characters in head for 3 years and it finally has come to life... "Hey, I'm a rabbit! And I'm a haaamster! You just  took a trip to the PAARTY CAGE!" Too funny for words.

Night 1 there is an obstacle course. Every cabin is sent through the dark into unchartered territory with one mission, to protect their leader from water balloons.  Here is Will decked out and duct taped.

The obstacle course and night all end in a huge pool party. They had a belly flop contest and here is the winner... it's blurry but you get the picture.

And that concludes Day 1.
