Home again...



OK... I am back (and apparently still recovering) from Girls Camp.  It was a great experience, I am so glad I got to go, and I hope I can do it again next year... but that's entirely up to Greg.  
I didn't realize how tired I was until I got back.  I also returned home with a strong aversion to my computer and camera.  I suppose that is due to the constant picture taking & editing in all of my free time and then sorting through and organizing over 800 pictures to create a slide show for the last night that is 430 pictures & almost 20 min long. It was very stressful towards the end of that process & I finished burning it to a DVD literally at the exact minute I needed to show it.  I really wish I could figure out how to post it on here... or on youtube, but it's not working. (*any suggestions welcome!*) The girls seemed to really like it- they screamed & cheered through each of the 430 pictures (which means they didn't really realize that there was music playing throughout the show)!

(Angie- this one of the OP girls is for you!)
Anyhow, I have been catching up on everyone's blogs- though I haven't had  it in me to leave comments much yet.  I am starting to come out of my funk a bit though so I hope to get around to a real post soon.  Bear with me. :)

LOVE the picture of you and Jillie!! You both look beautiful. My mom was always in Young Women's when I went to Girl's Camp and I have such great memories of that. Hope you had fun!
P.S. Your Girl's Camp is much more green and beautiful than ours ever was. :)

If we're here next year -- sure. I had fun with Rea, Kob, & Jacko. We spend a lot more money when I'm home all week :)

Love it, love it!!! Thank you for taking a pictures of all the OP girls!!! I am so happy to see that Tara and Lenzi went back!!! Those silly girls said they might not! They couldn't resist you being a leader! I hope you get the video working. It would be fun to watch for those of us that have had the Senecca Lake experience! I hope the temperature was more bearable this year!

I am glad you had fun Nik! I love the pic of you and Jillie :) And what does Greg mean IF you are there next year? Where else would you be?

Sunny said...

I have to agree with everyone else. That picture of you and Jillie is PERFECT! You really do look so similar and both so beautiful. I have the same question as Shannon..."IF?!?" You are not allowed to move again until WE have a house.

Sunny said...

Hey Jillie! Where's YOUR post on Girls camp? We can't wait to hear about your experience too!

Nikki said...

Who knows where we will ever be from year to year, right? I can never feel settled though each move is harder than the last on the kids... hopefully there's no moves. Just in case though Sunny, better buy a house FAST!

Carolyn said...

I feel for you if move again!!! It is so hard on me! Thankfully the kids have adjusted well to all of our moves from house to house in AZ and then to Logan and they would be thrilled to live closer to their cousins. But I am never fully moved in anywhere!!! That is awesome that you got to go to girls camp....looks like they had a blast. And I am so impressed that you pulled that video together. You are amazing. My mom was the Y.W. Prez when I was in too....I loved it!

It's a little bit crazy to think of you as a leader at Girl's Camp with your own daughter since I can still picture you at Girl's Camp as a teenager yourself. I should dig up some photos from back then.
