The sun is shining through my window, we're making music, making music.

So again, it has been quite some time since I last saw this blank page of a new post. A lot has been happening since the end of June. The Ascend The Hill show on July 3rd was incredible and had a huge impact on my life. I have been feeling so happy and peaceful since that show, despite some strange times I've been having this month. "The love of God is greater far, than tongue or pen could ever tell. It goes beyond the highest star and reaches to the lowest hell." There is not many words truer than those.
I also had the pleasure of volunteering at camp July 6-8 and had a blast! I was working with 2nd and 3rd grade kids and they are adorable! Every single one of them was so much fun to talk to and play with. The girls in my cabin were all from the DeMotte area so we had a little bit in common, knowing some of the same people, and understanding where they were talking about when they'd talk about a place in town. These little girls had SO much energy! Every night I would be so tired and they were all running around crazy in the cabin laughing and talking and sometimes even singing. I also got to interact with a lot of the other kids during "family group" time which was basically a small group where we learned our bible verse and made up a bible skit and other fun stuff. That group of kids were the absolute BEST. The little girls always wanted to sit on my lap or hold my hand and the guys would tell me some of the silliest jokes I've ever heard. I miss all of them so much.
While I was at camp a lot of MY old camp counselors were there and they were telling me all about Sr. High camp and how much fun it was going to be and how I HAD to sign up. So I got pressured into going to Sr. High camp and I am SO glad I did. It was AWESOME. I never went to cabin camp as a kid and now I am kind of upset that I never went. I had so much fun. Behold The Branch played for worship every night so it was pretty sweet to get to see all of them during the week.

In other news...
My two best friends are leaving for college this month ): I do not want them to go! I am gunna miss them so much! I have to find new friends now?!

I am SUPER excited for Fleet Foxes coming to Chicago on October 1st. My brother and I will be going to that show, most definitely. Tickets go on sale tomorrow and I am snatching them right up!

I have finally got my wardrobe all straightened out. I finally feel like it is complete. I bought a few new pairs of shoes last week and I don't plan on buying much of anything for a while.

I am starting school again soon. Ew. But I hope to get done early this year. I'm thinking I wanna graduate by the end of January. I know December would normally be the cut off for early graduation stuff, but that is the wonderful thing about being home schooled. You can graduate whenever you want! And I know that I can do it by December, but it isn't very likely, so I am giving myself a little more time.

I do believe I finally found the right college for me and I am super excited about it. I think I'll do a whole post about it sometime soon (:

I also want to start doing some outfit postings. I feel like I've been putting together some cute stuff lately (:

I NEED to buy some film for my Polaroid cameras. I know I JUST said I am not buying anything any time soon, but I changed my mind, I need some film. I want to take some sweet pictures!

I have been working some pretty crazy hours at work lately, doing shipment and overnights. I got to work on some visual things this past weekend and I was in heaven. I love putting together outfits, and knowing that lots of other people are coming in and noticing my work makes me realy happy and excited. (:

I am thinking I may start some sort of alterations "business" soon...more to come on that thought too.

I've got lots more I gotta do today and it's already 4 in the afternoon! Eep!

Nancy (:
