My Week

Last week, was insane. I gave up pretty much all hope of trying to write. But, for all who’ve missed me, I’ll try to pick it up again this week. I should have some more time… right?

Over the last week I’ve done a lot of things, but they were all either fun, or successful (or both). It all started with Base Camp. I might’ve written about this before, but, Base Camp is what my church calls vacation bible school. People come and volunteer in puppets and drama, help decorate, and even lead various groups of kids to help them learn more about God. It’s probably one of the coolest (and most fun) things I’ve been apart of.

I started out doing drama a couple years ago, and this year I continued helping some friends of mine lead motions for the kids. It was my favorite part of the week. The first day or so it was just my friends and I up on stage, but by the end of the week we had probably half the entire group of kids up there singing and dancing with us. It was awesome.

A lot of the time it’s hard for us to get kids to do the motions and really get into it, but this year that was no issue. Not even for the older kids.

Now on to the weekend. I finally spoke at the WordCamp I wrote about a while ago. As worried as I was, it went swimmingly. My mom suggested I read what I wrote, instead of making an outline, so it would be a little easier. She was right. It felt a little awkward at first but reading it really helped me block out everything else going on.

The only problem with that is that I got a little lost in my slides. But, getting lost and being able to joke about it really helped me calm down. And I think it made me a little more relatable. The best part was getting so much support from people.

So, for all that this week was insane and I’m really excited about sleep, it was great. I loved getting to know all the kids at Base Camp, and I loved being able to see my “family” from WordCamp.
