Goodbye July!

Well almost :)

Camp went amazing! It is so awesome to see God move in people's lives! For me this year felt different than other years. Different in a good way!

All week at camp I got to be around the Catoe's 6 week old baby girl! (David and Stephanie are on staff too) I loved that! Stephanie would let me hold her almost whenever :) I enjoyed talking and being around the godly women that are staff! There is so much I have yet to learn how to be a godly wife! I asked one of the women about any type of good books and she recommended "Feminine Appeal" by: Carolyn Mahaney. I am excited about learning more about how God wants me to be as a wife. (It also has some stuff on being a godly mother, which that will come in handy in the years to come)

What else has been happening...
Friday evening Joey and I went to Galveston and stayed till Saturday evening. We went and saw his dad and grandad, and Carmen too :) We went and ate at Shrimp and Stuff friday night. They have such yummy fried catfish!! Saturday Joe, Joey and I went to get donuts, then ran some errands with Joe. I like Galveston! It is so pretty there and I love all the old houses there. While we were running errands we went to Pier 1. I found these really cute bird salt and pepper shakers. They were $3.25 with tax! I was excited! Next time we go down to Galveston almost all the old oaks will be gone! The city went around and painted orange dots on all the trees they were going to cut down. So when you are driving onto the island almost all those old oak trees that are in the median are going to be cut down. It's kinda sad! Those trees are so beautiful! It will look different for sure!

Sunday evening my mom and I went to a play at the Alley Theater. We saw "Sherlock Holmes and the Mystery of the Crucifix" (I think that was the name) It was good! Scary in some parts, like gun shots and thunder booms, it was a good mystery though!

Today I went and finally got my name changed on my driver's license. I avoid the DPS office as much as possible so that's why it has taken me so long! I went and did that, it only took about 30 minutes or so. Then I went and returned something at Walmart. I went to the bank to get my named changed on our account. I couldn't do that until I got my license changed. Then I went to Target. I got a cute rug to go in the laundry room(so I don't have to feel the litter under my feet when I do laundry). Swept the floor and now I'm doing some laundry! I love having such productive days! :D

Well the washer stopped, got to go!

Enjoy the beautiful day God has provided! :D

Busy Bumble Bee

So lately I have been pretty busy! The type of busy that when it's Thursday you think it's Tuesday!

This week I have been working for camp. (I do all the registration stuff for OneCamp) I did all the badges Tues. and Wed. Tuesday was my mom's birthday so we went to eat at Gringo's. Good food at a good price! Wednesday was just busy!
Friday I did housework since this next week we will be at camp, would like to come home to a house that is clean :) Then today I've been packing for camp! It's been a very productive week!

Oh! I finished reading book #2!! As previously mentioned in my blog, one of my goals this summer is to read 3 books!

An update on that list:
- I have finished the guest bathroom- we got a shower curtain rod. Joey was sweet and put it up!
- For Joey's birthday I organized the office and the the filing cabinet. It's much better now!
- I finished reading Saint by Ted Dekker and I'm about to start on Sinner (by same author)

If any of ya'll read the Circle Trilogy (Black, Red, White...and coming soon Green!!) I highly recommend reading Showdown, Saint and Sinner!! They go along with them and they are really good!! The only thing that kinda makes me sad about starting on Sinner is I'm on the last book of that series!

Tonight Joey and I went to eat with my grandparents. They are in town for a few days. It was good/different to see my grandpa. He has Alzheimer's. He is doing well, it is just weird to see him being different. He is on medication and he does cross word puzzles to help stregthen his brain. It takes him longer to respond when you talk to him. He falls a lot, which I don't think that's a part of it, but it doesn't help. He does still remember things when you ask him stuff about the past. My mamaw said that he doesn't always remember things, but tonight when asked about something he remembered. And he could hold a conversation pretty well!! Overall, he is doing pretty good considering the circumstance. Which is great to see!!

I am really excited about camp! I just ask of anyone that reads this to pray for everyone involved in camp this year. The students, sponsers, staff, the speaker, the band, the drama guys, just everyone! Thanks! :)

I'm off to do more packing :)

Have a great week everyone!
