I MADE IT!!!!!!!

Hello There!
Well, sorry for my blogging absence the last week. I was chaperoning our church's youth camp!
Meanwhile....this is the 100th post of my little blog! Very exciting! I have all sorts of things to share with you today. So here goes....
These are the girls that were in my room at camp. They are all going to be in 9th grade this year. I was very sleep deprived....but it was totally worth it!
This is a shot of the stage...the theme was Ignite.
Some of the boys in our youth group!

We packed all the silverware for the camp the Saturday before it started! It took forever! We had to put a knife, spoon and fork in a little baggie! Plastic gloves=sweaty hands!!! yuck.

Pics from our silverware packing party!


Also that day....we took the youth to sing at a nursing home. They did a great job. They were a little hesitant at first, but they ended up loving it and had fun talking to all the residents.

On a sad note.....
remember I mentioned to you earlier about our best friends getting ready to move? Well, last night we had to say our goodbyes!!! I hated it. I didn't think it would hurt that much. Let's just say my eyes are puffy this morning. It is hard to have good friends move away. I know we will still talk, but not having them around to spend time with will be hard. Ugh!!!!


Well, enough of the sadness!!! I did finish the scrapbook I was making them! I really liked how it turned out. I forgot how much I love scrapbooking! Now, I am going to make myself an album of all of our pics with them.
This week I want to... scrapbook, make some hair accessories, clean my house, go grocery shopping and relax! Sounds delightful!
Well, thank you for sharing my 100th blog post with me. It means a lot! I have had so much fun blogging and reading so many other wonderful blogs out there. I have so appreciated everyone's fun, sweet, helpful and kind comments to me. :)
Have a beautiful day!!!
With Love,
Amanda

Congrats on your 100th post!!
How sweet it is to go to a nursing home. It always makes me so sad there that I want to cry. The elderly are so sweet.
I said goodbye to my best friend last year as she moved several states away. Ugh I know that feeling! Thank God for the technology we have so we can keep in touch with long distance friends.

Hi,

thank you so much for your lovely comment :) I looked around your blog and think it is really wonderful.

I know it is difficult to let people leave. Thanks to modern means of communication (email, chatting, blogs ...) it is easier to keep up with each other's life, though. My best friends live in a different timezone so it is tough, but the amazing thing about best friends is that no matter how long you don't actually see each other or don't talk, you are still close and when you meet/ talk again it's like you never stopped.

Have a wonderful day,
Kate

I feel honored to have read the 100th blog! I haven't blogged in quite awhile. I will start one and then get distracted, so I wind up deleting it. lol
