(catching) up

Its been more than a few days since I've blogged last, and I feel like my life has been a whirlwind.  The gift fair, a trip to the bamboo bike studio, and then cross country camp for 3 days.  I'm wiped and the next few weeks aren't going to be much better.

I promise I'll be blogging about the gift fair and the bamboo bike studio, but for now I thought I'd share this picture from cross country camp.  (In case you're wondering what I'm talking about, I was one of 3 chaperones for a group of 15 high school and middle school cross country runners.)  It was an incredibly stressful 3 days (for a number of reasons), but one of the coolest things we did was climb to the top of this mountain!  Straight up the cleared section!

I'm actually scared of heights, but I was fine the whole way up and down.  My focus was completely on the kids and making sure they made it up (and down) safely.  It was pretty cool to realize I can move beyond my fears when helping others.
