Update from Camp

Hey y'all!

My time at camp this summer is slowly dwindling and it feels as though first session just started but instead, here I am, halfway through third session where I can count my days left on my hands! As you could probably tell because of my inconsistent posting, I have run out of pre scheduled posts and therefore won't have posts up for y'all everyday, I hope you understand!

There is never a dull moment when you work with 6, 7, and 8 year old girls all summer and I have pictures to prove that! (For the campers security though, I will not be including photos of my campers).
Below are camp taken photos mixed with selfless and snap chats that give you a minuscule glimpse at what I've been up to while I've been gone!

Our entire summer staff

One of my best friends from school, Caroline, was working at a neighboring camp and I was lucky enough to spend some time with her while we were both working!

We get four nights out during our two week sessions and while you might assume that we enjoy getting dressed up and eating food in Chattanooga, TN and Rome, GA it is not that uncommon for us to end up 15 minutes away exploring Walmart and eating less delectable cuisine.

The dance with two of our neighboring brother camps is so entertaining to observe as counselors! Think blown fuses in the cabins, too much axe, and campers way over dressed for the magical venue of a tennis court!

Counselor Hunt is one of the few times where you will see me dressed in camo to guarantee that I stay out of sight of the campers! These past two sessions I have not been found and I am hoping to continue that streak!

A between session trip to Atlanta was much needed for rest, relaxation, and of course, shopping!
My camp best friend, Mary Hall (our campers think we are twins and it isn't rare for us to show up in completely matching outfits, see images above and below) and I were excited for a quick getaway and properly celebrated National Lilly Day!

One of the few times anyone will ever think of me as being "intense." Although I am still unsure if the running skirt I was wearing can fit that bill.

Having campers attack you with water balloons and dump buckets of ice cold water on you during activities isn't that uncommon either!

And sometimes we celebrate the Fourth of July for three days in a row!

Dressing like a boy isn't completely unheard of either…

Identical outfits? No wonder the campers get us confused!

Nights Off always involve ice cream and being thankful that we can sit down for an entire meal without fearing that a camper is going to spill their drink!

I hope you enjoyed this tiny glimpse into what I've been up to this summer and understand that I'll be back super soon with tons of fun posts coming your way!


  1. What apps do you use to edit your pictures? I'm loving the way the fourth and ninth pictures look, almost like an old film camera!
