camera dump and other things

So, I’m going out of town next week. And the next. So things around here may be a little sparse, but I have a few posts scheduled, so it should all work out. Next week, I’m chaperoning the Jr. High Mission Trip to Chattanooga. I just found out I was going a few weeks ago when I became the Summer Intern at my church. Apparently it’s in the job description. I was leading a small group with most of these girls about a year ago, so I know them, but I’m still a little nervous. What can I say? Seventh and eighth grade girl drama kind of scares me. I’m sure you’ll see a blog post when I return with pictures. As soon as I get back from that trip, we’re jumping in the car for a family road trip to Texas to visit my grandparents out there. I think by the time I’m done with all that, I’ll be glad to get back in my own bed. :)
Finished packing my bag today. I’m pretty proud of myself for fitting it all (for the Chattanooga trip) in my small Vera Bradley duffle bag. I’m patting myself on the back for not overpacking, and praying that I didn’t underpack (haha). I found my small point and shoot camera and pulled it out to bring. I want to get pictures and all, but I don’t want to have to lug around a camera bag and I want something that could just fit in my purse. I had to charge it because it hadn’t been used in so long, but when I connected it to my computer, I found lots of old pictures that I thought I should share. I know that I probably meant to blog them way back when (last fall) but I never got around to it. So, I decided to do a camera dump and post them all now!
This is from a trip to the zoo I took with my Daddy last August. I like penguins!
This is from this AMAZING pizza place that used to be in Montgomery (Sal's). It closed down last winter.
This is how we do Friday Nights in Alabama. Small town high school football games. 
And this is from a Saturday afternoon at Desi's baseball game. 
Lastly, this is from a visit with my Grandpa and Miss Cherry. :)
And that's the camera dump for today. Last fall in a nutshell. I need to get better at taking pictures (and uploading them to my computer!). Hopefully next week I'll take lots! Haha. I'm excited about spending time with these girls and building relationships with them over the upcoming week. There's a group of seven girls from the church and I'm really hoping for a week free of drama and girly arguments. Pray for this (Haha. And my sanity on the 5 hour trip!)...and I'll post more when I get back (aside from scheduled posts).


  1. i'll be praying about your trip!

    i love penguins too! i taught my little cousins how to do the penguin walk last sunday... they loved it.

  2. I'll be praying too about your trip! I was petrified of middle school girls until I led them for DNow this year (7th graders)! I loved them! They're at the age when they still think you're cool! :)
