-Going to my favorite local theater, the Sunrise, to see E.T. They play an older movie on Wednesdays in the summertime. E.T. is such a wonderful story. What I enjoyed most was all of the children there who had never seen it before. When that cute little alien appeared on the screen, a little girl yelled, "E.T.!!!"
-A delightful dream.

-A delightful concert at church with our own Tyler who is fundraising to support his year of mission service as a Young Adult Volunteer in Nashville. I am so excited for him: it will be a life-changing experience. And with his musical talent, Nashville's bound to be a wonderful place to be.

I'm finally posting about our canoe/kayak trip to Camp Monroe. It began with cheesy caps (purchased by yours truly for the princely sum of $5...total) to ward off this heat as we hit the water. Karen and Taylor are cousins and awesome girls to hang out with, much less take to camp. After the miraculous feat (thanks to their helpful parents) of stuffing a week's worth of things x3 into Lola the Lovebug, we jetted off to Monroe. The evening was relaxing, and I began our first night's Vespers (evening worship) that I did for all of the campers each night. I think there may be a part of my soul that only really wakes up when I go to a camp setting. Sitting on a front porch drinking coffee while watching birds and the sun creep through trees, singing cheesy camp songs and playing guitar, eating massive amounts of starchy food, and...all that kayaking. It was delightful.
**If you get this reference, I'm proud of you!
To be sure that I wasn't only eating vegetables and missing another important food group (chocolate), I made these.
I hope your summer is treating you well, y'all! Stay cool and if you can, get on the water.
