remember when i was gone for so long? well, this is where i was: camp in photographic review.

i had over 200 pictures from the week at camp, but i'll spare you and just put some of them.  the week was absolutely amazing, and i'm already counting down the days when i get to go back!!

camp eagle on the nueces river in the texas hill country

"acquire the tire" = a sort of wrestle tog-of-war game that consists of mud, rocks, mayonnaise, syrup, chocolate sauce, powdered sugar, bbq sauce, pickle relish, baked beans, fruit loops, ranch dressing, and lots of battle wounds.  it's way dirty and way disgusting.
(lil bro's on the left)

it took a few days for my campers to actually realize i was their adult sponsor.  key word there being adult.

rec time with my clan!  we dominated, if you can believe that.  it may or may not have been because i threatened them that i would make them run during their free time if we lost. 

that is the face of determination and victory at the annual 'saints and sinners' softball game.  (a.k.a. sponsors vs. seniors)  we killed them, by the way.

my clan: the village of capernaum, hole in the roof gang

yes, that is a tight rope tied between two trees.  no, i was not very good.  three steps was the best i could do.

little bro and me.

little brudder's last year at camp as a camper.

getting ready to do the BLOB!

senior celebration the last night.

the pictures don't really do the week justice.  let's just say it was one of the most amazing weeks of my life and since then, my life has truly been different and i'm so grateful that i was able to go.
happy monday everyone!  it's gonna be ridiculously busy from here on out for me.  wrapping up a series of projects at work and interviewing candidates for my position.

SurferWife said...

I love that I share a brain with Jess, because the whole time I was like, "My trifecta member is THE hottest piece of ass West of the Mississippi."

And I reminded myself to go running.

Bathwater said...

I can see you being mistaken for a camper not a sponsor. It does look like a lot of fun.

Design Apprentice said...

Wow that looks like so much fun, I would love to lead a camp like that and help others walk in faith! Was that a huge slide I see? It looks crazy!

ScoMan said...

After the first picture I was like "That looks like a good place to relax and read a book"

And then I saw all the physical activity and the mud..

I think I'd prefer the book.

Salt said...

Wow it's so beautiful there and it looks like you guys had so much fun!

Great pics! (That last one looks straight from a magazine!)

Kristin said...

Oh how I wish there was a camp for "adults"!!!! This makes me miss my days as a camper ever so much...ahhh...those were the days! Looks like you had an absolute blast :-) Thanks for sharing! Happy Tuesday!

Casey said...

Camp Tallowood?!?!??! Ah, the memories. So jealy you got to go to that as a big all-grown up person. Looked like an amazing time!

Allyson said...

Oh how I miss my camp days...the ones as a camper, NOT the ones as a counselor. I was too busy having fun to be any sort of responsible. And the blob?? I LOVE the blob! Even bettah...have someone who is roughly 250 lbs. blob someone who is about 100! Serious awesomeness!

I'm wondering how this camp experience ties into your life changes and can't wait to hear about it!! Thanks for coming back to us. ;)
