Oh the Places You Will Go!

Sorry I haven' t been updating as well as I should be. But I can't say thing will get any better because in a couple of days my life is about to go crazy.

I leave for Sumer Stampede (my college registration) in two days. After this I will not be coming home for three weeks. After Stampede I am leaving straight from there and going to Natchez, Mississippi and visiting my dads side of the family before we go to my cousins wedding in Monroe, Louisiana. Then we will leave from the wedding and go straight to camp. And probably be coming in late to camp. Then I will leave early from camp and get on an eight hour plane headed to Glasglow, Scotland, where I will be staying for ten days. 

I'm not sure if I'm going to make it.But I'm super excited to be getting to do it all.

 I'm so ready to be at Harding it's insane. Stampede will be a good couple of days to see friends that I haven't in forever it feels like. We're going to be picking our classes and chapel seats and it all feels like it's becoming so real now. It's so close. I want to summer to hurry up but there's still so much to do to get ready.

We haven't seen our family in a good while. My nanny (that's what we call my dad's mom) lives in Natchez along with my millions of aunts, uncles, and cousins. So it will be nice to see them all again. And then my cousin Matt is (finally) getting married to Jenny. They have been dating for longer than I can remember. The first time I meet her I so called this wedding. I'm so happy for them. And we haven't got to see my cousin Matt and his sister Abby in an even longer time. I'm excited to see all my family!

Then we have Camp Inagehi. This is probably my favorite place in the world. I have gone every summer since I was nine. And this is the last year I can go as a camper. It's super sad. I love this place so much and it stinks that I'm not going to be able to get a full week of it, but it will still be so much fun. I have gotten so many spiritual highs from this place, meet amazing people that have changes and shaped my life, and made memories that will never be forgotten. It is my absolute favorite place to be.

Glasglow, Scotland. I GET TO LEAVE THE COUNTRY!!! WHOA BABY!! I'm so excited to be going on this mission trip and help share God's word an show His light where it can be hard to see. My preachers son and his wife are living there now and he is the youth minister at a church in East Kilbride. They have been there for months now. And they are truly amazing people. They have already helped so many people there. I feel honored to be able to get to go and be apart of this with them. They are truly an inspiration. And while I'm in Scotland I do plan on getting a kilt.

This is only part of my crazy summer. Only part of the journey to get to destination: Scarcely, Arkansas.
