So now you are all probably wondering "Suze, since you haven't blogged in 2 months, what the heck have you been doing?" I don't blame you for wondering. I don't think I have ever gone 2 months without blogging. But for you curious souls out there, I spent yet another summer at one of my favorite places in the entire world: summer camp. I don't know what it is about that place but I just can't get enough of it. So, to show you just a little bit of what I did this summer, here are some pictures!

After those 2 weeks camp rookie camp. Rookie camp is a week long session specifically designed for kids that have never been to sleep away camp before. It is a long and hard week, but really rewarding at the same time. For the entire summer I lived in a cabin called Chickasaw with some amazing counselors and campers. The girls in my cabin were between the ages of 11 and 13. While at times they were a difficult bunch, they were so much fun and I am so happy to have had the privilege to be with them.
Once rookie week came to a close, our regular sessions began. Our normal camp consists of 3, 2 week sessions and my oh my did those weeks fly by! This year I was the assistant waterfront director so I spent the majority of my time by the pool or the lake life guarding! Here are some pictures from those 6 weeks!

So that was basically my summer in a nutshell. I had a fantastic time and I miss it so much when I am away. It is scary to think that on Monday, I will be making the trek back up to SMC to start my first semester of senior year (after preseason, of course!) I can't wait to see what this semester has in store!
