week five: midpoint.

 camp is officially half over. yesterday marked the exact middle of camp weeks: five and a half. it’s absolutely crazy to think that i’ve already spent (over) half my summer here. it’s flown by. i’ve had five cabins of completely different kids. i think it’s most odd because it’s a mixture of disbelief at the fact that it’s already five weeks in, and yet my first week of campers seems so long ago. like, in years. it feels like i had them a year ago instead of at the beginning of the summer.

this week has just continued to be a blessing. my kids are all great, though one doesn’t know when to quiet down and another doesn’t seem to understand that it’s disrespectful to disobey. i’m being honest, too. he seems like he genuinely wants to please me and gus, but doesn’t seem to get that when he disobeys us or takes a long time to obey us, that it’s disrespectful. he’s a good kid though. i’ve grown pretty close with our stayover and one other boy who’s here for the week. more than the other kids, they seem to just have fun being around me, which is a cool thing. 

i have some things to do tonight. i have a chapel to plan, which is sort of in the back of my mind, gnawing away. there’s some reading i want to get done, and some writing. i might start the parent letters tonight. i’m really enjoying not being anywhere but at the lodge tonight; no hustle or rush to be anywhere, or be back at a certain time. it’s nice.

well, this one’s a short one. i probably won’t be updating this weekend, because i’ll be hanging out with mom and dad!

to all of you guys who are reading, i encourage you to find comfort in the fact that God is big enough to handle anything. He is more than able to handle whatever you’re going through, He’s more than able to handle whatever happened in the past. He’s more than able of handling you, whatever that entails. and He wants to be involved.
