Because I never wrote a camp letter and I though it might be fun…..
Dear Mom and Dad,
I have been at camp now for a whole month. I can’t believe how fast the month has gone by and I still have so much writing to do. It has been blazing hot all month at times I didn’t even want to go outside to go to work because it was so hot. I have had a lot of long nights and too many early mornings. It will all be worth it in the end. I think you will be proud of what I have accomplished.
The best part aside from the writing what this year for the first time I met my goal. I liked choosing hours because sometimes I got eight hours of writing in a day and other days no writing at all. My cabin this year was full of believers which were a change for me as well this year. It was great to hear all their encouragement and passion for the task ahead.
I wish I could have visited with you more, but I really want to get this book done. I feel like there have been so many things come up to distract me. I know you would be happy that I am doing what makes me happy, what I am passionate about, and my calling in life. It is kind of odd that it has taken me so long to get back to it. If I just would have hung on at 13 and kept going man I would have probably gotten really far, but it is time to just keep looking ahead to the next goal.
Kiddo and I did take some time to go swimming. We didn’t get to make s’mores this year because we were in a drought and fires were dangerous. I got to play with the dogs some too when the sun was going down. I might go hiking next camp if it is cool enough. I think I want to come back every year. It is the best.
Thank you so much for being there for me. I appreciate your encouragement even though there are many times you don’t understand. You know it is important to me and I thank you for everything you have ever done for me. I love you.
See you soon,
