i totally and utterly wish i could still go to camp

Yeah, I've been MIA. So What?
Not that any of you are AVID readers of my blog or anything. 
Let's just say that I have been a little busy bee at work lately. Since my position at work has changed I am now the Camp Director of our diabetes camps ( the title sounds nice right? well...the pay ain't any different than before, ha!) I digress....

My first diabetic camp is this weekend! It's called Lotta Bright Hope and its a retreat for type 1 diabetics. I am SUPER excited for this weekend! You see, growing up, I LOVED going to camp. It was what I looked forward to all school year. The excitement of being away from home, meeting cute boys...eerrr I mean friends, and just experiencing everything and anything new! My favorite camp of ALL TIME was the ACU camps ....MPULSE and KADESH - actually Kadesh definitely takes the cake on that one. There was something about ACU camps that was amazing.....it has something special to it. Maybe it was that teenagers across Texas came together for one soul purpose....to worship the God we love. Now that my friends, is special. 
I miss those days.... ALOT. I would totally go back to camp if I was eligible, would you?

Anyway....my first camp is this weekend and its going to be jammed back full of fun! The kids are getting a TON of free stuff from the different diabetes pharma's reps - amoung other things they will be swimming, rock climbing, horse back riding, arts and crafts, archery, a bonfire making smore's.....the list goes on my friends!

Until then, 

Wish me luck!

cracker

What is this world coming to? Seriously, I really want to know. There are so many things in life that happen on a daily basis that I wonder about. Times are changing, yes. Work life, home life, raising children, lifestyle changes etc. To be honest ( since I was honest last post) I really am at a loss of words today. I thought I knew EXACTLY what I was going to write concerning this post. I really am out of sorts as I write this post. 

My blood pressure SHOT SKYROCKET high this afternoon while giving a kick-off at a school. I enjoy my job, I really do. I get to work with kids everyday, what can beat that? I love kids, if anyone knows me well enough they KNOW I love kids. 

I don't even know where to begin? 
Long story short.....

I had to go to the bathroom, so I went. I did my business ( sorry for the graphics ) and then proceeded to wash my hands. By the way, this was the end of the day and I was ready to get out of there. I wash my hands then dry them. As I am walking out of the bathroom, I see a group of kids walking down the hall I was about to walk down as well. As I continue to walk out of the bathroom this boy yelled out " HEY CRACKER".

 I LITERALLY STOPPED IN MY TRACKS. 

How the hell ( sorry for the cussing ) am I supposed to react to that racial slur that was just said to me? REALLY??!?!?!? The other kids that were with the boy that said that started to laugh and chuckle and whisper. I continued to walk down the hall as if I didn't hear it, but boy, did my face show it - it was beat red. 

A middle school boy just called me a CRACKER? I took offense to that remark, that was a racial slur. I didn't even do a darn thing to him to call me that he did. This kid called me a cracker and laughed about it. 

WHAT IS THIS WORLD COMING TO????????????

can i be honest?


I totally didn't mean for blogger to post my " can I be honest"post without any words in it yet, weird?

Anyway....let me proceed with my honesty post.

I figured I could be honest with you ...after all ...honesty is the best policy.

No, I'm not pregnant - just had to clear that up.

I honestly MISS MY FAR AWAY FRIENDS! I miss my friends that I played softball with at ACU. These girls are the type of people that nothing has changed since we all last hung out. We can always pick up where we left off and it not be weird or awkward. I miss them and love them dearly and I am so lucky that God chose me to be friends with them.

To my favorite friends ever ( Danni, JD, Val and Kristen).....thanks for ALWAYS being there, near or far. Thank you to ACU softball for letting our paths cross and for making friendships that will last a lifetime. I wish there wasn't hundreds to thousands of miles that seperated us, it's just not fair. One day, we will all live together in the same neighborhood and start our own softball team full of our little girls. Love you!!!!!!

My sweet little ones looking out the front door, daily activity for them.

Rocky LOVES to stand on this table and let the wind blow in his face.

I LOVE this picture of Nakona! too cute!
Pretty flowers in my parents backyard.

Roses are red.......
