Colorado's calling

In 2 days I board a plane with 36 high school kids and 5 other leaders for Colorado (Frontier Ranch). This is my first trip to summer camp with my friends from Country Day and I am stoked! We have 5 girls and 4 guys going from CCDS. Summer camp is one of my favorite things about Young Life. I went to both Windy Gap and Frontier in high school and my life is forever changed because of those trips. I believe it what Young Life does, but they really do it well at camp. It's a week away from life at home. A week filled with first-time adventures. A week filled with friendships that last a lifetime. A week filled with experiencing God in new ways...through the speaker, the workers at camp, other kids, leaders, the scenery...everything. And I can't wait to spend a week with my friends!

There are only 2 bummers about this trip. 1) it's the longest Adam and I have been away from each other. Sad, i know. i think i'll miss him a whole bunch! and 2) i am limited in my activities due to my beautiful baby girl growing inside me. it's kinda bittersweet...i'm not sorry i'm pregnant, but i will miss out on some fun fun things at camp. However, my time and conversations with girls will be way more remembered than their horseback ride, i know this. And i'll get to take lots of pictures.
Thanks for praying for my time at camp and for Adam while he's home alone. :) Here are a few pics of my time at Frontier when I was in high school for your enjoyment!

Amy I hope you have an awesome trip and I'm so sorry I didn't get to hug you and your sweet belly before you leave. I will be curious to hear if your time spent with your CCDS kids at camp will be with a new perspective now that you have seen the baby growing inside you. Look forward to seeing you when you get back! May God Bless you and keep you safe. XOXO
