These summer days have been reminding me of the hot and humid days in Iowa that I would spend with the Conrad’s as a child. Driving through the country side, getting sticky from the humidity, and having summer fun.
The kids are smelly, the days are long, the sun is hot, and it’s all great. Life just kinda happens and many of my weeks and moments are gone with a blink of an eye. I love seeing the smiling faces of children everyday. One camper last week told me I have the best job because I “get to ride around on a scooter and take pictures all day.” He is pretty correct on that one. I love this summer job.
Life tends to happen in ways I don’t plan. I should’ve realized that by now, I keep planning and thinking things are going to happen a certain way and then nope, something throws me a curve ball and my whole life suddenly become vastly different. Things have gotten complicated, exciting, and a little bit scary, but mostly exciting. I’m excited to see what happens in the next month. And for now, I’m just going to take things one day at a time.
I have over one thousand pictures to go through from this week. Plus probably another several hundred from today.
Bring. it. on.
picture was taken out on Ron Smith Memorial Hwy by East Bay Camp. This is right after it rained and this photo just shows a glimpse of the humidity. yuck.
