Looking Back {Summer 2010}

In 2010, I went to a camp in Illinois, four hours away from home, and worked as a wrangler with the horses for seven weeks. It was a very difficult but fun time!! I was going thru my mom's pictures today and saw the ones she took when the fam came down to visit! Here are just a *few*! ;)

*me, Blue (my horse for the summer), and Freckles*

*this is called ponying. i hated it with a passion!!!*

*me on Jazmine, leading Duke. this is the 2nd time I fell off, and Mom saw the whole thing!*

*me and Blue, my baby for the summer! He could be such a brat, but I loved him!!*

*Lis, me & Meg at the helmet shed before our ride*

*the fam at DQ, enjoying time together before they went back home and left me for my last two weeks*

 *the Full Time wranglers: Me, Bekah, & Liz*

So, to sum up that summer in a nutshell: crazy, maddening and awesome all at the same time!! I don't think I would ever do it again. It was a once-in-a-lifetime experience for me, and it taught me how to work insanely hard, and how to have a servant's heart. :)

Have you ever done something like work at camp for the summer?



  1. Oh my goodness, I am so jealous. It looks BEAUTIFUL there!!! Someday I am going to do something like that :)

  2. All these pics make me pine for summer!


I'm glad you've gotten this far, cuz you know how much I loooove comments! So go ahead and leave one!!!
