At this moment, I am at the departure location getting these students checked-in for our trip to Hume Lake! Once they are all checked in, there will be some photo ops and then we board the bus for our ride up the mountain. I am looking forward to a very special time with this group. Please pray for our safety and health! Good thoughts work too.
As we pull into camp, we lose reception so I will be completely off the grid next week. I welcome this. Truly. My brain has been running non-stop for far too long. I need this as much as the students do.
When I return on Saturday, I’m sure I will have stories to tell but it might take a little time for me to share as I am exhausted after camp. Plus, I haven’t shared my summer reading list yet. I’ll do that when I return.
See you soon!

Have a great time!! Look forward to your camp stories and summer reading list. I am not one to make one, but always enjoy reading the ones others make.
I have yet to make my list but I plan to this weekend. It won’t be long. It might only have a few books on it or possibly even one!
Our bus broke down on the way up the mountain in a not so safe spot but the driver was able to get us off the road once the engine cooled off. Was a bit of a delay but all worked out. It was an adventure.
Enjoy the week… I’m sure it will be fine 🙂
It was great and it was fine, like you predicted. I only broke one toe on the very last day.
Have fun, I admire you for doing all you do.
Aw, thank you. I don’t think my last post quite represented the amount of fear I was experiencing when I wrote it but camp can be a challenge for sure. There are unknowns and then there are knowns and I was mostly worried about all the physical stuff but I did okay. Not great but I didn’t die. I am sort of proud of myself. I still can’t walk correctly but that will improve with time.
I hope you have a wonderful time. I envy your time off the grid. Enjoy!
Someone on FB told me to hug trees up there and although I didn’t actually hug trees, I had a lot of lake time and the fresh air, sunshine and cool evening breezes were so refreshing.
I hope you have a wonderful time, Ti! It is a much deserved break!
It’s a lot of work this camp counselor stuff but a lot of fun too. I slept on average 3 hours a night but seem okay in that department but my body is so sore.
I hope you’ve had a wonderful week and that time away from phones, the blog, etc has been rejuvenating.
Yes!! It was so good to be away from all the stress I was experiencing right before. And, you won’t believe this but I came back to work after being out for 8 days and not one email. Seriously! Of course, there was a huge re-org that happened and everyone moved to different parts of the building but so far, I am in the same spot. It was weird to come back and have people be in different places. I think because of all that emails to me were a low priority!
Yes, hoping you have a restful (as much as you can) time away from all the ‘electronic noise’ we all deal with. Take care, Ti!
Yes! Not having Wi-Fi or reception of any kind up there is nice. I was able to reconnect with nature and it felt so good.
Have fun and stay safe!
I hope you have a blast!
Have a great time and return home safe and happy! Can’t wait to see your summer reading list.
I am going to take some time this weekend to figure out my list. I am still lagging from last week’s trip but this weekend I am headed to the beach and can figure it out while there.
I hope you have great time Ti. It looks gorgeous there and I hope you get some down time too for yourself. all the best.
I am back and still recovering. It’s so exhausting but rewarding at the same time. In high school, they get 5 hours of free time daily so I was able to get some downtime for myself too.
