mid may update

summer's well on its way. well, mostly. it did flurry again yesterday. yes, flurry meaning snow. but the grass is green and the sun is out today.

i have the day off, then i'll be submerged in summer chaos for the next 2 weeks straight at least. really, i mean the next 3 months. this past week was great though, and if it's any indication of the days ahead, i'm overjoyed. summer 2009- bring it on.

i do have moments where i miss being at springhill staff training. it's good to be somewhere new, doing something different. and i'm excited for what lies ahead. i still don't really know what's going to happen this fall- i've applied to a few places, but no word yet. i like to think i'm flexible, but part of me really wants to be back in michigan. i guess the jury's still out- and in all reality i'll probably take whatever job is offered to me (within reason...)

life's good right now. sometimes it worries me to let those words slip out- i feel like it invites chaos. but that's kindof a superstitious way to live. and i'm not really a superstitious person. so life's good life's good life's good. :-)
though my chacos broke.
sad day.
they'll be getting sent in tomorrow for repairs.

that's really all the excitement for me right now.
grace and peace to you.

oh it really IS spring.

i keep assuming that it will suddenly snow again... despite the fact that it's may 4th.

i need to enjoy the 50-60 degree weather we've been having over the past week and a half and remember it's here to stay and it's only gonna get warmer.

we finished the first part of ropes training and now i'm working on part 2. i'm excited that i get to be one of the fortunate few to go through the official adventure challenge facilitator training course. it's one of the things i came to honeyrock to learn and was starting to doubt i would get the chance to do.

some of our summer staff is already here- ok, well, just maquoto (he is from japan... and i have no idea how he spells his name... but he is awesome.) and that's been really great. more people will be joining us within the next week! crazy. things are going to get way busy around here. AND we have to move soon. it's bitter sweet. i'll miss the berg. but i'd better settle in to the chalet cuz the next 3 1/2 months will fly by i'm sure.

lots going through my head/heart. lots of good stuff. lots of growing stuff.

get pumped.
