i woke up and was beyond sore! sleeping on a small air mattress, by the end of the night pretty much the floor, made my back and one side of my body soooo sore! but thats ok, the experience of camp grace was sooo worth it! besides getting to know the girls better it opened my eyes to what some people do to help others! i mean half the people who worked there didnt get paid and yet they came back year after year to help out. today we woke up bright and early and i am sooo tired! i almost couldnt even walk straight i was just so out of it! but i made it to breakfast safe and sound. today was pretty much just a practice day. we started and finished the entire, yes the entire!!!!!!!!!!! opening number and it isnt just any little move here walk in a line dance, its a lot of nid-picky movments that are going to look so good when polished! our dance teacher here is so funny she has a real dry sense of humor and has a little baby boy in her tummy which just makes her so much more cute. we practiced from 9am this morning to almost 6 tonight, that is sooo long! and i am just beyond tired! but again worth it.
today i had a really great convo with some of the girls in the vans (oh yea we are pooled around in police vans with hazards on, it just makes me feel cool being protected by a group of cops all the time!) we were all talking about how we are all so much alike and have so many of the same interest. there isnt one person here that is just in it to win it. we are all here for the experience and to meet some of the most outstanding girls in the country, and it has made the experience that much better. there are no catty girls, no one that sticks out or is cocky, we are all chill and we can all just go up to each other and talk about anything (and i mean anything let me tell you, there have been some interesting funny and out there convos!) its so nice to finally meet a group of people so much like you but at the same time soooo different!
after our forever and never needing practices, we had a PJ party with our girl scout troops. each junior miss has their own girls scout troop that comes and supports them through the week, and they are so cute! tonight i hung out with little sarra, cathleen, and courtney and they were sooo fun to dance and eat and sing with today. even though i was beyond tired they broght my energy up and made me smile ear to ear. oh um i need to post this video, of us dancing witht paper plates(yea dont ask) it is very funny.
well tonorrow im going to work with habitat for humanity and build something (dont know what yet) and meet with my state sponsor so it should be a really good time. i miss you all family and friends and i cant wait to see you all soon. all my love!!!!
