Wow! I can hardly believe it's been almost a year since I updated this blog. I originally started it to keep friends and family updated about my time at camp, but quickly learned I was far too busy to blog. Who would have thought that having 10 critically ill kiddos in your care 24/7 would be so time consuming? :) Camp really was an indescribable experience, which may be why I never tried to write about it once I got home. Maybe one day soon I can put those thoughts and feelings into words. Until then, I'd like to try to keep this blog updated with my daily adventures, because I'm so busy sometimes I need a way to remember what I've done! I'm not sure if anyone out there still reads this, but I'd love to hear from you if you do. I promise this blog will be a lot more exciting in the future. For now, I guess I should do a short update on what's been going on in the year since I last updated. Let's see....
In the last year:

~I finished another year of college (only 20 credit hours left to go!)
~I started working at a new church that I adore
~I went to FL to visit friends (a lot)
~I went to the beach
~I spent lots of time playing with wonderful kids
~I fell in love with someone I though was a prince, but he turned out to be just another frog
~I had surgery twice
~I turned 22!

I think that's about it, for the major events anyway! The past year hasn't always been easy, but I've learned that even when life isn't easy...it's always beautiful.

i saw your blog frog post on mckmama's blog asking for some love so I thought I'd drop by and say hi! :)

my blog has been severely neglected but i actually just won a blog makeover which will be finished in a couple of days, so i'm determined to keep up with it more after that!

happy blogging!

I, too, found you from the BlogFrog! Where in GA are you? I'm an hour or so south of ATL. And I had to laugh at your job description of being "baby-sitter extraordinaire" because my family and friends have been calling me that for years. Of course, I'm now "teacher-extraordinaire", but to tell you the truth, baby-sitting is more fun... all the perks, but w/o the stress! Looking forward to reading more of your blog.... :-)

Happy blogging! It's a wonderful world. :-)

Hey there! Hopped over from the blog frog! You'll have to check out mcklinky.com and try a bloghop...it's pretty cool, and a great way to get more traffic to your blog!
Kudos to you on being a Child Life Specialist...I'm a Peds nurse (well, during the winter I'm a Peds nurse, during the summer, I'm a Labor and Delivery nurse). LOVE our CLS! Way to go, good luck with getting your certification!

I'm from MckMama's blogfrog also. Great idea...Bloggy friends are fun! :) Best wishes with your studies! I currently stay at home with our 3 small boys. But when I get to work outside the home, I do so as an occupational therapist with children and adults.

Hello! Saw you on the MckMama forum and thought I'd pop over and say hello. I think it's awesome that you're studying to be a Child Life Specialist. I'm a child psychologist and there is nothing more rewarding than working with the little ones!

Would love to be your bloggy friend! Come over and visit!
