A Toddler + Mini Horse = Cuteness Overload

 The Bear went on his first pony ride last week here at Trail West
It was a great success, and possibly the cutest thing ever.  
Toddler + Mini Horse = Cuteness Overload
 Mack, the mini horse, looks a little nervous.  
 If you look in the background of this pic, 
you can see the baby mini horse.  Cutest thing ever.  
 Destined to be a cowboy? 
I think yes.  
 Mamas, don’t let your babies grow up to be cowboys.
But do let them ride mini horses.  

a little taste of young life camp

here’s a peek into what i’ve been up to for the last week. i took my high school friends to windy gap in weaverville, north carolina, for a week at young life camp. we guarantee kids that it will be the best week of their lives or their money back. i’ve taken kids to young life and wyldlife camps for the last 11 summers, for a total of 16 best weeks ever. every trip has been special, but this last one was really incredible.

here’s my cabin of girls dressed in our team unis for the volleyball tournament.

laura, whitney, and i giving it our all during the leader tug-o-war.

our group got all dressed up for hillbilly night.

i love partnering with my husband in ministry.

my girls and i at the top of the mountain hike
the view was a little cloudy, but the hike was awesome.

i’ve missed my calling as a nascar driver.

i just wanted to give you a little insight into my job. i am so blessed to get to hang out with high school and middle school kids and share Jesus with them. we lived in asheville, nc for 3 years, and jed worked at windy gap, so taking kids there felt like going home. we got to see some of the friends that we love and miss, spend time in one of our favorite places in the world, and help our high school friends slow down enough to take a look at the Gospel.

gone to carolina…

i’m gone to carolina. i’ll be at windy gap, a young life camp in weaverville, north carolina for the next week.  we are taking a wonderful group of high school kids to camp to have the best week of their lives.  this is my favorite part of my job.  i absolutely love camp, and windy gap is my favorite of all the 22 young life camps.  it is where jed and i met, and near where i lived for 3 years before moving to texas.  i’m so excited!  learn more about young life here, and windy gap here.  see you in a week!
