Well let's see, I am moving into school tomorrow and you may ask how am I feeling. Well right now I have mixed feelings. I am kind of unsure about this year and what it may bring. Now, of course anyone is going to be unsure but I don't know if I want to go back. I'm just thinking just give me two or three more weeks of camp and I'll be okay. I don't know it will be nice to see all of my u of i friends. I miss everyone from camp though. Camp always seems to mess with my emotions oh well.

Let's just say U of I here I come...whether I like it or not.

Okay so tell me what is camp without screaming campers and an awesome staff? I'll tell you it's nothing really but it is beautiful as always out here. I don't have much time go outside though because I have things to unpack from and camp and pack for college, oh the life of a staff member/college student. Oh well aside from the empty camp and missing everyone things are going well.

My mom, sister and I are going to see a movie. I'll give you three guesses which one should be easy enough to guess. Then doing some shopping for college and then the dreaded laundry, yuck. Yeah I can't wait until I move back into UIndy because now I just want to see my college friends and maybe some camp staff that live in the area. Going up to Indy on Thursday to buy my books and watch my money go down the drain but you know life goes on.

I hope that everyone is doing well. Good luck to all those that have started college and if you haven't started yet good luck during orientations and things. Love ya all!!!

Well, what an interesting day. I decided just yesterday that I was going to go to Keegan's Eagle Honor, so I called him last night and of course asked for directions because I had no idea how to get to Plainfield. It was funny and then my dad later said that it was a waste to drive all the way and take the interstates and told me a backway of course. And wouldn't you know it I got lost. That is always what happens but here is how it went. My dad told me to get onto 67 and turn left onto 267 and there would be a Gray Brother's Cafeteria there. I thought that would be easy enough. This Gray Brother's was in Mooresville and I knew I was close when I came to a stop light and saw a sign that said Brother's Cafeteria I thought it was it. A tree was hiding the other part so I went for it. I drove that for like ten to fifteen minutes and my dad had said that it would look familiar and nothing looked familiar. I decided I had turned too early and turned around. When I got back on the interstate, I look that sign and it says Poe Brother's Cafeteria, I felt really stupid. The next thing I see is a sign that says Welcome to Mooresville, I felt even stupidier then. So horrible, the next stop light had a Gray Brother's at it, I double-checked, and it was smooth from there. I am glad that I left early and gave myself enough time to get lost.

The ceremony was really good and it was great to see Keegan get such a high honor. To see the person that Keegan has become is truly amazing and I am excited that I could be a part of these past two years with him and I hope many more to come. Many of the people I staff I love to watch grow up and then finally get their Eagle. Makes me proud everytime. I am so glad that I have been able to be a part of the Boy Scouts for so long. 5 years of coming to Ransburg with my parents as a young girl, 5 years of living at Freidlander in Ohio, 9 years of living at Ransburg and spending 6 of those years on staff, and coming up to 19 years of being around scouting. It's a wonderful thing. People always ask me why are you a counselor at a Boy Scout camp and I always tell them what else would I do stay at home. Makes me laugh.

Well after the Eagle Honor and reception, I went to the Castleton Mall with the other two people from Ransburg that went, Laura and Nick. I was fun. I got lost in Castleton, or lost Laura and Nick in the parking lot. Drove around the mall three times looking for them and then decided to search the Galyan's parking lot because where else would a Ransburg staff member go, certainly not a Dick's right hehe. I found them and then we just hung out for a little while. Then I had to go home, sad I know I hate being so far away from everyone but just wait, in about a week I will be on the southside of Indy and you guys that live near there seriously need to hang out with me sometime because I know I will get bored out of my mind.

Anyways so that is what happened today. I know a lot of stuff but all fun and really funny. Well I need to get to bed I hope that everyone is getting over the 'i'm out of camp blues', I know I'm not. Goodnight.

Okay so the last week of camp is over and I am happy and sad. I am happy because now I have some free time and I will get to go to school and see my friends there. I am sad though because this year was great. I came into this year expecting the worst and then when I got the director job I didn't know what I was getting myself into. I wasn't sure if I was right for the job but I knew that I was going to do my best. I think that I did my best and the staff that I had this year really helped me in being the best that I could have been. The first real change for Handicraft this year was that everyone wanted to be there. Having a staff that wants to be at an area can change the attitude of the whole area.

Getting ready for school right now and unpacking from camp has proven to be a challenge but luckily most of the stuff that I want to take to college, I stored because I wasn't going to need it until I went back to college again. I am really excited about this year too because I know that I have an awesome roommate and the girls on my floor seem pretty good too. Most of the people on my floor were at Cravens last year too so it should be a lot of fun. One of the RAs on my floor also happens to be one of my best friends so that is a plus too. It will be good to see her a lot.

Well I think that that is about it for now. I hope that everyone is surviving being at home. I know that by middle of the week next week my family will have driven me crazy but the good thing is my sister starts school then so maybe it won't be that bad. Love you all!!!

Well it was an interesting week this week. I wish this past week wasn't over but it is now and a lot of great kids and staff members are gone. For those staff members that left, I hope that we will see you all at the banquet. If you don't come to the banquet, it was nice working with you and I hope that you decide to come back next year. It has been an okay summer but as the summer comes to an end I find myself thinking about the job that I have done as a staff member this year. Did I do the best that I could? Did I help scouts advance and get to know them on a personal level? Did I help staff members and make some bonds with them? Did I set a good example in my area? With all of these questions I can only hope that I did the best that I could and that people have learned something from me this week. I can't wait to get back to school. This summer has been great but I miss my college friends. Then I will miss my camp friends and it will just be a vicious cycle. Oh well. I think I am going to go to bed. I hope that everyone has a good evening and remember this is our last week but week one for the campers.
