The Winner is....

Summer Celebration!

Better than the riches of this world
Better than the sound of my friends voicesBetter than the biggest dreams in my heartAnd that's just the startBetter than getting what I say I need
Better than living the life that I want toBetter than the love anyone could giveYour love is
You hold me now in Your arms
You never let me goAnd You, oh Lord, made the sunshine The moonlight and the night skyYou give me breath and all Your loveI give my heart to YouBecause I can't stop falling in love with You I'll never stop falling in love with YouBetter than the riches of this world Better than the sound of my friends voicesBetter than the biggest dreams in my heart
And that's just the startBetter than getting what I say I need
Better than living the life that I want toBetter than the love anyone could give
Your love is
You hold me now in Your arms
You never let me go
And You, oh Lord, made the sunshine
The moonlight and the night sky
You give me breath and all Your love

I give my heart to You
Because I can't stop falling in love with You
I'll never stop falling in love with You (photo credit: Kate Price)
Okay, so I need to point out something about the last three pictures.
1. Emma (the b&w picture)
On the very first day of camp we learned about Gratitude. During the teaching she leaned over to me and said "I was complaining to my mom this morning." I asked her about what and she said "About wearing these shorts. When I get home home I need to tell her thank you."
Yep. My 7-year-old camper just whupped me in the confession department. I don't think I have ever been convicted, confessed and realized what I need to do to change in about one minute - let alone at age seven! Praise God for the work in her!

2. Caroline (in the red shirt)
She is a little dancer! During a game of Squirt (think volleyball, but with a wet sponge. Actually, think catch but with a volleyball net.) Caroline was trying to catch one of the sponges.
She missed pretty badly. I was just watching her with Julie and I'm like "It's okay Caroline! Keep trying!" Without flinching, looking at me, or anything she popped her arms in the air and yelled "Everybody dance now" and started dancing around the field.
She really brought so much joy to me and the rest of my team!
3. Team Picture
So, there we are. Quite a team. I loved every moment of coaching these girls. Seriously; every moment.
(and I had THE best assistants ever.
Monica - thank you for just doing anything I needed you to do. You have my respect for doing the hard stuff!
Kelsey - thank you for being so enthusiastic with the girls. They really enjoyed being with you!
Megan - thank you for taking an interest in the girls. Thanks for asking them questions and helping them get excited about the games!)


Umm. See you Summer Celebration 2008?

    I love Caroline!
    After a while of serving in Alpha with her being in my class I found out that her sister was my friend!
    I was amazed, because I knew her and her sister for a while and I only just then found out that they were sisters!
