On an errand to retrieve some chips from our pantry, I discovered that we had a spill. A big spill. A honey leak. The jug had managed to get a puncture in its side-slowly dripping onto the carpet and spreading all around itself. It isn't a small container. It is a gallon of honey. Thankfully it didn't all spill out, but just about a quart. By stepping into the puddle I found out the hard way that there was gooey, sticky, deliciousness on the ground. That stuff really does get everywhere! I keep finding it with my feet again and again.

Now when all the people came to the forest, behold, there was honey on the ground.
When I arrived at camp on Friday afternoon I was ecstatic. I was so happy about seeing my old friends again and making new ones. "Florida" was my bedroom (beachy feel) and over the course of the week I made good friends with my roomies. I am learning to stretch my extremely outgoing personality to reach out to others rather than make others reach out to me. That sounds backwards. Believe it or not, us extroverts deal with reaching out, too. I just don't love making small talk. It seems hard, but yet I do get some satisfaction out of it. On the other end of the spectrum, I am learning the lesson of not being too outgoing. In other words, the center of attention. Oh! I have been (and am being) taught that every single day, ever since I got home from Endeavor. I was slapping myself for not realizing how to be thoughtful of others all week. Will I ever learn?!!
This post is a conglomeration of my friends and me.
This is the event that impressed my brothers. I think that it really surprised them when I got home that I wanted to go shooting. It was fun trying to pick the cans off the box that afternoon.
I will classify this as:
My favorite part of the shooting range was the 22-rifles. I have shot all these guns before, but it was just so fun to hit the little targets! We also shot shotguns and 22-pistols. Now, the cool part of the shotguns was the fact that they had 8 clay-pigeon throwing machines. Each one shot from a different angle. Later in the day there was a tournament, throwing up about 35 targets in 40-60 seconds! Slightly overwhelming, but fun.
