Missions Work & Stools

Hey friends!

How's life been going for everyone? For me, it seems to be going by in a blur - I'm constantly busy! And I love being busy. I keep myself entertained by hanging out with friends, traveling, writing, and recently I've been doing a lot of DIY projects. I just finished making a really awesome monogrammed stool that I'll be posting a DIY for at some point:

Whatcha think?!

I also just returned (on Sunday) from New Orleans. I went down with Crossroads Church on their GO Nola missions trip, where I served with the little kids in Vacation Bible Camp. I was the classroom leader for Kindergarden - 2nd grade and I had a team of myself + 6 others, and although it was tiring, I had so much fun. Kids were clinging to me and telling me how much they loved me and didn't want me to leave...I nearly cried as my kids left on the last day!

Me and some of my kindergarden kiddos - Marley, Neveah & Chloe (L-R).
I truly hope I am able to go back next year and work with these kids again....hopefully for two weeks next time!

Has anyone ever been on a missions trip? Where did you go, what did you do, and did you enjoy it?

I have a lot of cool stuff coming up for you guys - so stay tuned!
