Summertime :)

Hey bloggers!!! I am sooooooo sorry I haven't posted since APRIL!!! I have just been so busy this summer it seems like I haven't had time to blog!!! Since alot has happened since I last blogged, I'll just give you a little overview of everything :)

Student Life Camp - 2011 <3

This year, my church decided to go to Student Life Camp in Orange Beach, Alabama :) It was an incredable week filled with friends, fun, lot of time on the beach, and jellyfish stings...not to mention incredable music by the Brett Younker band and powerful speaking from Matt Chandler! It definatly challenged our youth group and I hope we get to go back there next year! Here are a few pics:

Roomies!!! :)

On the bus! Ya never know what kinda craziness is gonna happen here!!! :)

SLU 101 <3

One definatly incredable week this summer was when I went with Kaylee, Kelly, and Joel to SLU 101 in Orlando, Florida. Student Leadership University is a program created by Dr. Jay Strack that teaches young students how to become leaders at a young age, and to fufill God's plan for their life with all the time they have. One memorable quote from SLU, and one of their mottos is this, "There comes a time where the little girl sits down, and the woman stands up." It was such an impacting week for me and my friends and I will never forget it! I can't wait for 201 next year in DC :)

Also at SLU, we had an awesome opportunity to spend one day at Sea World and another at Universal's Islands of Adventure! At Sea World, we had sessions on how to be more like a dolphin and less like a shark. At Islands of Adventure, we got to play around at Harry Potter World (woop woop!!!) and got to ride the Hulk three times!!! :)

Here are some pics from SLU:

After no sleep for 3 days, we needed LOTS of caffine :)

I had the bright idea to sit in the splash zone...not the best idea. I enjoyed the death threats from Kaylee all throughout the show :)

Those Mandrakes in HP World sure were loud!!! :)

You can't go to Universal and not try on some cool hats!!! :)

I think we all enjoyed the Hulk WAY too much!!! :)
Well, I think thats it!!! Oh, and one more thing...I have a new little niece!!! At 3:30 this morning, little Katie Joy Rollins came into this world :) Abby's oldest sister Amber did an incredable job with her first birth and Katie Joy is the sweetest thing on the planet!!! I was so excited I got to meet her today :) Here is a pic of the sweet girl:

Alrighty well its time for bed before VBS in the morning!!! I'll probably post about that later as well :)

TTYL, Em :)
