While I was out

Every year I volunteer one week out of the summer to volunteer at youth leadership camp. It is a fantastic time, and I am around some of the most wonderful human beings that grace this earth. There is nothing but positive energy and a great deal of excitement, not to mention a reunion of sorts with the other volunteer leaders. In the spirit of summer, I thought I would show just a few details from the week that brought me a little joy.


We had a 50's style sock hop, but for those of us without poodle skirts, we tried a slightly different version.

Sock Hop

We found this little catepillar in a tree and thought he needed a little portrait session.



Last but not least, we have a bit of a running joke about this squirrel. Most of the photos I took would only be humorous as an inside joke, but I thought I would share one little moment with everyone.
