Hey K2 Kanakuk Gals,
Well, this morning I had the blog ready to go and my crazy internet went, well, crazy. Anyways, so it's back up and working (Thank you Sharon Smith! Shout out! She is our transportation director extraordinaire and Phone Go-To!) and the post is still fresh on my mind...

I was thinking (technically now I was thinking about this this morning but go with it) about DREAMS. That word just kept coming back to me. What are you dreams? What were your dreams when you were a 6 year old? What will your dreams be when you are 20 years old? Our dreams sometimes hold a place of far off or illusionment (not 100% sure that is a word), unattainable but fun to "dream of." Well, today I simply want to provoke thought...what is your dream (no matter how far fetched or out there)? Why is it your dream? What can you do to grasp that dream?

I love the quote in this picture...not that ultimately you have no future if you don't obtain your dream of when you were (fill in the blank) years old...but don't let fear or "negative nancy's" (sorry girls named nancy, you got a bad rap) be your voice to hold you back from your dreams...

My timeline of dreams:
--little girl age: I dreamed of being a Barbie. Seriously...quit laughing, that was my dream.
--older little girl age: I dreamed of being a teacher and a bow-maker. My mom is a teacher and my childhood best friend had the best bows.
--girl age: I dreamed of being a professional basketball player. Bahahahaha! I know I work for a sports kamp but that does not mean I'm sporty!
--older teenage age: I dreamed of being on Broadway.
--young college age: I dreamed of being Katie Couric on the Today show or being a sideline girl for ESPN.
--older college age: I dreamed of...well, to be honest I had no idea what I wanted to do with my life. Welcome to senior year in college!
--young college graduate age: I dreamed of being a CEO of a business. Very broad, very random.
--still young, but a big older college graduate: I dreamed of working for Kamp! Woohooo! Dream come true! Yes!
--older college graduate age: I dreamed of being a wife and mom. Wife first! Woohooo! Dream exceeded all my dreams by being Mrs. Shay Robbins!
(I'll stop there so I don't give away my age...which is 29 year old...I know you just can't believe it! Stop it, no really go on!)

So enjoy a little laugh from all my dreams...they do come true!!!! SIDE NOTE: This posting has way too many of these (__) and these " " and these ... and these {random ramblings of me where I am talking to each of you but yet I'm not. I'm typing in my kitchen as the washer is running)

Be Awesome & Love Jesus,
