Summer Camp to Something Impressive

I can pick through the young people I've known across the span of my life and pluck the gems out of the bunch with ease. Lindsey was one of the best. Mature, cool, kind, going places...I knew all the way back to summer camp that the pretty little girl with the counselor demeanor and the little kid eyes was going to manage some incredible things in her life. She has. I think she was 11 or 12 when we first met, and all of us knew the kind of impressive adult she was going to become...every one of us.

She followed my tracks unknowingly and landed in the very same vacated office I used at the Boys and Girls Club, thumbed through my poorly kept notes and files, made friends with my old friends long after I'd left. Naturally, they loved her as I had...do.
She finished up a degree there, then moved on and grabbed herself another degree...she found herself a long way from summer camp. Now she's gotten engaged, and you can't believe the photos. They're incredible.

Like I said...gem.

I can't believe how grown-up Lindsey looks...nothing like the girl I hired to work at Summer Outdoors! Well, she was beautiful then and is gorgeous now.

Holy smokes. I can hardly believe my eyes... Upon trying to catch up on some of the adventures of Camp Zed this summer, I stumbled across this incredibly kind post. Imagine my surprise!! You've made my heart warm and my eyes watery....in only the best way possible.

Thank you for making my day....and for always being so wonderful. LOVE! LOVE! LOVE!
