My second week at EFY: Lawrence, KS July 7th-12th
This week was especially special because it is the same session I attended for FOUR years! Being on the KU campus reminded me of so many memories, and there were even several of my past group members still attending at participants. weird. I was excited to have 16-18 yr olds this week, which was kind of weird because i attended a couple of the same years my girls did, if that makes sense. My girls were so chill, but i got a little frustrated because it was like pulling teeth trying to get them to join in discussions. I LOVE these girls so much! It was a pleasant surprise to be paired with the same co counselor i'd had the week before, and i think we made a great team. However, our boys. Oh, our boys... they were ROUGH! We had 8 boys and at the beginning of the week it seemed at 6 of them would resist all week.. but by the end of the week we'd snapped most of them into shape. I sure did learn a lot!
The whole Group

The DEATH of me-- doesn't he just look like a punk?

One morning, i walk into our Gospel study area and see this. It's a pretty accurate description of Stephen and my week. I was loopy all week, and Stephen wanted to die all week. As far as the "squish that face" thing.... it was a self-defense trick i taught my girls.
This is a sign that I made wed. night on some garbage i found.. and by Friday I'd turned it into this work of art that i carried with me everywhere!
Tiffanie Player... LOVE HER! Tiffanie was my counselor when i was 15! This year we reunited as fellow counselors!
Shae Morgan was in my group 2 out of 4 years of my efy participant career. He was enjoying his last year as a participant!
