Life continues past the months of June, July, and August and so must the counselors of Day Camp.


some prayer requests...

Hey guys-this has been kind of a crazy day and I'd just really appreciate it if you guys could be praying for somethings and my family.
-My cousins and his wife (Thad and Mandi) went into the hospital on Friday because she was going into labor...finally this morning after some very very poor decisions made by her midwives a docter had to step in-joyfully they have a healthy baby boy but Mandi almost died of blood loss, her veins collapsed and miraculously they found one they were able to find a vein they could tranfuse into and she is okay but definatly still in need of lots and lots of pray.
-My sister-in-laws father was up at their cabins in the mountain fishing etc. He was by himself but he checks in with the park rangers every morning so they know he's okay. He didn't check in Sunday, Monday or this morning and the park rangers went to look for him at his cabin and he's not there. They are currently searching the area but don't know if he took off on foot of on a 4-wheeler, what could have happened, etc. So prays they he is found and okay would be so great.
Basically it's just a really hectic time for my family, lots of good things are happening (a sister graduating next weekend, a brother getting married in august, etc) but all of this is kind of stressful and with all this scary things piled on top it's just kind of hard right now. So prayers are appreciated and needed! thanks guys! miss you all and hopefully will see you this summer when you work or come to visit DC 08!



Heya Big Tymerz.

I don't post here much these days, mainly 'cause I have a blog of my own that I already feel guilty about not posting at enough, and who needs two sets of blog-related guilty feelings, amirite? Anyway, as the title to this post prolly indicates, this is important. I want all to click...(wait for it)...this link. When you all get there - and I do mean you all; this is important - I want you to do something with your heart. Namely, I want you to search it. Search it deep and hard. Searched? Great. Now that you've searched your heart, you can vote both honestly and intelligently in the Alameda Sun's 2008 Mother/Daughter (Mother-Daughter? MotherDaughter? Maughter? Eh.) Look-Alike Contest. PLEASE! DON'T BE WAYLAID BY GIMMICKS LIKE MATCHING OUTFITS, STUPID RED DOTS, CUTE KITTENS, OR THE FACT THAT THE PARENT AND CHILD BOTH HAPPEN TO BE ASIAN. (Aside: it's likely the Hongs aren't even related. It's a popular surname.) No, vote with integrity. Vote with your conscience. Vote honestly and intelligently. Vote, specifically, for these people:

That's - (full disclosure) - my sister and my niece. The one on the left is my niece. Right now they're winning the race, but the Hillary Clintons of Alameda - i.e. the whorish Hongs - are trying to spoil their victory lap. There's, like, one day left to vote. So, please, for the sake of this sweet, sometimes-too-talkative-and-somewhat-(mostly?)-annoying little niece of mine, go vote. She gets to ride in the 4th of July Parade and wave at people if she wins.

Goodnight and good luck.


PRAYER for Steven Curtis Chapman's family

hey y'all... this is a sad post unfortunately. Yesterday Steven Curtis Chapman's youngest adopted daughter, maria, was hit in their own driveway by one of their cars. it was late at night, and somehow she wasn't seen playing in the driveway. it was a terrible accident.
she was in critical condition for a short while before she died. She just didn't make it. The chapman's are family friends of ours and this story is heartbreaking for us and many other friends and family to fathom.

Prayer and thoughts are needed for the Chapman family and would be appreciated.
