First off I apologize that I have not taken the time to sit and type out a entry. I have been soo busy this month. Mid September I decorated cakes for my Cousin’s children’s birthday party. Because the oldest son LOVES soccer that’s what I made them.
The same day as their party my friend Becky and I threw our mutual friend Sara a baby shower, so obviously I made the cake for that as well AND I was the “photographer” for the event. It was a blast and the cake turned out great (If I do say so myself)
After that, everything with Girl scouts has come into full force. I’ve been having meeting after meeting. This past week I had a meeting with the parents and talked to them about what I have planned for the year, and how I would like things to run. I also was blessed with a CO-leader who has past Girl Scout experience so if I need something done she’ll do it for me. Next week our regular meetings start and I’m really looking forward to it. I was recruited to have input for the new overseas camping manual for the Girl Scouts also. Which hasn’t been too hard, just needed to do a bit of research.
I LOVE LOVE LOVE my new job! It’s such a blessing every day to see that I am in one way or another helping and blessing the lives of these little ones while they learn skills that they are going to need to use for the rest of their lives. They make me laugh with their silly antics, and shout for joy when something “clicks” and they are able to do something we’ve been trying to teach them. No matter how tired I am at the end of the day, I praise God that he’s brought me here to do this job. I now truly understand why my dad would fall asleep on the living room floor at 7 o’clock at night.
As for my photography, I have been blessed with the opportunity to take pictures of a new born baby boy. Also my friend Sara gave birth early to her beautiful baby girl, and I was able to go to the hospital and take pictures of her on her “birthday” and will be doing her official photo shoot on Sunday. I am definitely busy, and I am learning the important lesson of scheduling and not over booking myself to the point I make myself exhausted.
