At the Y, we are starting to gear up for summer camp. I know spring isn’t even here yet, but it is never too early to get started. Thinking about summer camp, there is one thing that comes to mind. Pies. Lots and lots of pies. If you have worked at a camp before, you know exactly what I am talking about.

For this week you may think I am going to go with llamas or a dress for the POTW, but I’m not going to do that. For the record, I have seen both blue and black and gold and white so apparently I broke science. I have also chased a pack of llamas before and know the struggle is real. Continue Reading→
This week’s POTW bring us the first ever picture of Iron Man. By far one of the coolest and happiest moments of my life. It is crazy to think that in just over 3 weeks Zeke is supposed to be here (more on this later this week). The past 8 months have been a roller coaster. The #1 question I get asked now is am I ready.

We were reminiscing of some of the old times at Charisma Youth. There were conversations about the epic retreats and lock-ins we had (including the story about how Michele yelled at all the boys on one beach retreat to clean the dishes when they were already doing that and now we will never let her live that down). It was a lot of fun taking that trip down memory lane. One memory that got brought up was when I used to send out the weekly email with all the announcements in it. Continue Reading→
