For the Georgetown Peeps

June 20, 2008 at 9:45 am 5 comments

I’m still bitter about the “daddy doll”…perhaps that is why there is nothing after “Camp:  Day 1”. 

Apparently, the Georgetown Peeps wanted some good press and didn’t get it. (See comments on post below).  I was like, “Who is stalking my blog today?”  See SiteMeter Log:  Georgetown, KY frat house, 15 minutes, 11 pages.  Aha!

Trying to give you all some space! And, I’ve been busy keeping Red busy!  I was close in Lexington Monday to Wednesday…why they were calling both of us separately on your phones!  I guess you didn’t catch that.

Tuesday, Goldilocks forgot to call home she was so involved.  Real homesick there.  I called and could not hear a word she said for the girls screaming and giggling in her room in the background.  I need to tell her about the trick of hiding in the closet to talk on the phone.

She is taking “Cooking” and “For Girls Only”.  They made cookies, pizzas, and…something else.  They painted toenails and had a pajama party (I’m hoping she wore some decent ones).  Gee, I’m glad I did not write some things I could have this week.  I remember now that the whole world is reading this thing

The group lost one Tuesday–one child got homesick and came home. 

Wednesday, they did called and everyone was all good.  Brother said sis was doing great.  Sis said brother was doing great.  The worship team seems awesome.  Goldi was hoarse, so we could barely hear what she said.

Wednesday, we got a call from Michael letting us know the group seemed much more spiritually mature and responsive than they imagined they could have been.  They were taking great care of one another and experiencing physical impressions from worship, some feeling “tingly” and very good after worship.  That’s great to hear. Um, if he’d said, “Blog this”, I would have gotten the point.  {ahem}.

Thursday, Goldi scratched her eye sweeping her hair out of her face…it got better, then worse.  We owe Michael ten bucks for eye ointment, and some change for entrance to the water part they treated the group to on Thursday.  Boy Wonder didn’t win either wiffleball or football, his two tracks…however, I had trouble getting a thing out of him on Thursday.  He said Michael and Josh and a couple other people were in the room.  I said, “Well, would one of them like to talk to us?  We can’t get two words out of you.”  When we said, “Goodnight, we love you.” he said, “Okay.”  Yeah.

The kids said the water park the group went to visit for group time was pretty fun, though small.  They also got treated to ice cream cones that night.  Josh treated them all well considering they got the “If anyone else breaks the rules we are going home” speech on Tuesday.  Oldest trick in the book…and it seemed to work.  I never figured out why they didn’t threaten to send the ones home causing trouble, however.  That tactic always scared me to death.

Friday…I’m suppoed to go pick them up in six hours and I have much to do before then!

    What time are they supposed to be back? We are picking someone up and were told 2pm, but from the time you posted… 6 hours is not 2pm.

    (Maggie note. I edited the post because of some poorly phrased humor realizing I may have offended when I didn’t intend that).

    Susan explained: Her roommate was Emily and she was asked to go with the campers because she is one of the chaperones, not because she decided to take a camping break out. H was already homesick prior to that.

    I was joking–trying to be light-hearted. It makes for a hard situation, though…I took the camping trip and left my room-mate once…she wasn’t happy. It leaves someone without a room-mate for a night. I wish they’d give some thought to that to ward off the “I’m left alone” feeling.
    I’m glad Emily was willing to go! Such a sweet girl…no offense intended. I edited, but left our notes for those who may have read prior to the edit.

    Stacey, it may be 3 their time. Better stay on my toes!

Sifting the joy from the mundane:

recording, photographing, learning, creating.

I am married to the love of my life, as we raise three children, learning the ways of grace.


Magnanimity (derived from the Latin roots magn- great, and anima, soul) is the virtue of being great of mind and heart. It encompasses, usually, a refusal to be petty, a willingness to face danger, and actions for noble purposes. Its antithesis is pusillanimity. Both terms were coined by Aristotle, who called magnanimity "the crowning virtue."

Noah Webster's 1828 Dictionary of the American Language defines Magnanimity as such:

MAGNANIM'ITY, n. [L. magnanimitas; magnus, great, and animus, mind.] Greatness of mind; that elevation or dignity of soul, which encounters danger and trouble with tranquillity and firmness, which raises the possessor above revenge, and makes him delight in acts of benevolence, which makes him disdain injustice and meanness, and prompts him to sacrifice personal ease, interest and safety for the accomplishment of useful and noble objects.[1] (Source: Wikipedia)



"We shall not waste our time in looking for extraordinary experiences in our life, but live by pure faith, ever watchful and ready for His coming by doing our day-to-day duties with extraordinary love and devotion." ~Mother Teresa



"Yesterday is gone. Tomorrow has not come. We have only today. Let us begin." ~Mother Teresa




A kind heart is a fountain of gladness, making everything in it's vicinity freshen into smiles. --Washington Irving




When you get into a tight place and everything goes against you, till it seems as though you could not hang on a minute longer, never give up then, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn. -Harriet Beecher Stowe
