Of Church Camp, Attitude, and Laundry

Our crew from last year

Ah, it is that time again.

Church camp.

Five days of heat, Jesus, my favorite lead singer in the whole world, and living in a room with 60 girls (pray for me on that last one, m’kay?!)

I like routine and knowing what to expect.

With church camp, routine and knowing what to expect gets thrown out the window.

{And oh, the ways it has been thrown out the window in years past.}

You just never know what God (or the kids!) are going to do this year.

As I sit here and type this, I should be loading things in the truck. (We are only 40 minutes from camp, and have the exquisite luxury of going up a few days in advance to set some things up so we are better-prepared when we actually show up with students… that’s what we are doing today.)

Normally, I am ready for camp by now.

I am so not this year.

Among some items not ready is our laundry.

It’s crazy, but my husband would like clean clothes for camp. Imagine that?!?!

Plus, spiritually, I am not focused.

Paperwork-wise, I haven’t even started.

I am taking my two older girls to camp with me, and leaving the little one with my mother-in-law. I’m sad about leaving my baby for that long, even though I’ve done it before.

As one friend would say, I am a “hot mess.”

I will be bringing my precious Keurig with me, so that brings a small measure of comfort.

Did I mention my patience is not starting out at 100%?

Like I said, a hot mess.

Luckily, God seems to work on my nerves, frustration, attitude, and patience level by 6pm on Monday. That is when my really-busy-time usually ends. Everyone is registered, paperwork is pretty much finished, and everyone has their pretty little bracelets.

Until then, does anyone want to come do laundry for me?! ;)
