Visiting My Girls :)

You guys know I talk about “my girls” all the time and usually I’m talking about the current group I’m mentoring, but I’ve actually been working with teen girls for a long time – like since I was a teen girl myself, haha! Eight years of mentoring precious souls. Which means even my youngest girls from so many years ago are now college students. Hard to believe! Anyway, this weekend I went to visit a group of my girls at college!

I’ve known Kylie (in blue polka dot cardigan) and Graye (with the scarf) since they were 12 and now they are both engaged! Also in blue polka dots (on my other side) is Carlee… a few of you may actually know her. She used to blog over at Snack Girl Goes Healthy. She and I found that we had a lot in common and developed a pretty amazing friendship which is still going strong 2 years later. 🙂

I also got to see Madi who I’ve known since she was in 7th grade. Now she’s a college sophomore working on her nursing degree. 🙂

Over the weekend I also got to see Rachel, Madison, Sarah, Abby and Emily all of whom I’ve known for years (Emily since she was itty bitty!). Totally failed on the photo front, haha! Next time for sure. 🙂 I love all my girls so much and I am so thankful I got to see them! I spent a good chunk of the weekend with Carlee and she got this precious shot which she put on Facebook which I promptly stole to put here! 😀

Carlee and I!

Love. Her. 🙂

The weekend was such a blessing, but like always – it was good to come home. Oreo definitely thought so…

I used to be a sponsor in the youth group at my church years ago, but then got married and moved away and I haven’t helped out with any youth groups since. You’re really making me want to get back into it! I hope I can find a new church with a youth group so that I can help mentor teens again!
