music camp, a broken car, and traveling lots...

This has been music camp week which came right on the heels of being at home for Avery's baptism. I've also been a maniac about figuring out stuff for the mission trip this week as I will be in NYC next week for my end term event as a US-2.

Music camp is this phenomenon that is really like no other. This year, around 50 kids have descended upon the church to put on a musical. They learn the songs, their lines, and have fun doing it during the week and present it on Sunday. I didn't help last year because I was at annual conference in Illinois, but this year I'm here helping instead of back there doing the voting thing at conference. A shout out to all my Illinois Great Rivers folks at conference.... wish you were here... ha! (notice, I didn't say wish I was there.... I'm hearing the stories about how ridiculous the voting has been so far for GC)

I take off Saturday to hang out with my US-2s one last time at Alma Matthew's, but leading up to that, my car died. At a busy intersection. My friends came to the rescue and got me out of the jam, but it was a less than pleasant experience. But after a new alternator and spending almost all of my salary for a month on repairs, my car runs again! Thankfully I should be able to make it through the end of my term ok financially as long as no other major thing breaks on my car before I finish.

I've been talking about cupcakes and where to go to church Sunday in the city, and what we'll be doing and when we get in via email with the other US-2s this week. I am ecstatic to see them but already thinking about Saturday when we all leave NYC. It is gonna be so strange to be done with this program for sure, but it will always be a part of me and hopefully we'll all try to keep up with each other as we part ways. It really is an amazing group of young people that I am so thankful to be a part of.

When I get back, it is a night at home then back on the road to the mission trip. I'll probably blog from NYC, but I don't think there is internet access anywhere near us in El Paso, so stuff from that may have to wait. They both should be great trips but I have a seriously busy day tomorrow getting ready to go on both of them. It is definitely going to be a busy two weeks!
