Keep the Car Runnin'

This is in honor of my new friend Leslie Sloan... who inspired me that I can be a mom and exercise. 

Now that Knox is 6 months (next week) I'm now allowed to jog with him in the jogging stroller. "They" say 6 months is when they finally have full control of their necks, therefore wait til 6 months to jog with the jogging stroller. 

Here is my newly edited jogging playlist... most of which are inspired from camp, which makes me happy, so don't judge me for all the pop music.

Kick Drum Heart - Avett Brothers
Viva La Vida - Coldplay
Good Feeling - Flo Rida
Hard To Find - Daniel Crawford
Starships - Nicki Minaj
Get Down On It - Kool & The Gang
We Found Love - Glee Cast
All I Do Is Win - DJ Khalad
Cosmic Love - Florence + The Machine
We Are Young - Fun.
Paradise - Coldplay
Boyfriend - Justin Bieber
Lights - Ellie Goulding
Party Rock Anthem - LMFAO
It Goes On and On - Avett Brothers
Long Hot Summer - Keith Urban
Headlights - Daniel Crawford

The first day, I went too soon after I ate. They say wait 30 minutes after a meal before heavy activity for a reason. I'll have to go in the mornings or evenings due to VERY high temps throughout the summer in Houston.

The Gurick's

Introducing the Gurick Family... Zach (Head Leader), Blair, their daughter Addie (4), and Micah (2).

This family is such a delight! Blair is one of the funniest, real, and honest women that I've met. I've so much enjoyed getting to know her and her family. Addie is sweet and soft spoken, but when she talks its so funny. Micah walks around with 2 fingers in his mouth and one that goes from inside his nostrils to rubbing the tip of his nose, getting snot all over his nose. Way funny and cute. Blair hates it!

The Lord has laid on them a mission to adopt from the Congo. A bunch of staff spouses have chipped in to help make bracelets to sell and help raise money, awareness, and most importantly prayer for this family and the children and people of Congo. I got mine in blue and LOVE IT. 

Here is the blog to follow and to buy a bracelet

Here is Addie sporting her red bracelet...

I'll miss this family.

camp life

Our boog is 5 months old! He is the B.M.O.C. here at camp! All the children love him, the workers love him, and the campers love him! I love how much joy he brings people! Don't see how anyone couldn't love him...

  I wasn't feeling well last night and earlier today... thank goodness our committee chair and his wife are here as adult guests! They watched Knox while I slept ALL morning (til 1:30!) and Will worked. I was so so grateful! Here's a family photo from tonight...

We laughed so so hard at this picture. I bet he's going to make some great funny faces like his papa.

looking into the future in 12 years...

oh our life. Today I thought about when I was a camper in high school, and seeing the program guys and thinking how funny they were. Who knew that that would become my life. Wouldn't trade it for anything. 

Jesse and Jasper McAwesomestache doin what they do. Second Night 4 down. 1 to go.

TONS of children on our assignment...never a dull moment!

Knox had his first experience in the pool.

cold nights call for layers...

Knox loves club...

We've seen 5 moose since we've been here! so awesome... Will has grown an obsession to look up moose attacks on youtube.

Will has an adventure for a group of kids everyday... obviously, this was see how long you can keep your legs and feet in the air.
