    Yay….the blog is up and working! Makes me smile to see your adorable picture, Jaci! Your bio is perfect for you…so kind and caring. I can’t wait to hear all about this amazing experience for you…it’s going to be awesome! I know you’re already worrying, but there’s no need to! Illy is going to be fine without you…she’ll be so happy to hear about your experience! You’ll make great new friends because you’re a honey! And….you will do amazing at camp. I’ve been praying for you, sweetheart. I’ve been praying for your nervousness to go away, for you not to be worried about leaving Illy, for you to make great friends, and most importantly for you to realize this week how much you are loved by God….He created you so perfectly, and He loves you SO much! He’s all you need, sweetheart! I’m also praying for mom and dad, Illy, and the rest of the family! I can’t wait to see you at send off….I need a good Jaci hug!

    Hey Jaci. We missed you yesterday for Caleb’s open house. It’s very noticeable when you’re not around because you’re so funny and light up our family. It sounds like you’re having a really fun time already. Can’t wait to hear about your horse riding experience because that’s always favorite when I went to camp. Love you!

    How was the climbing wall? I’m imagining, just like the giant swing, you were a little scared, but I bet you challenged yourself, jumped way out of your box, and beat those fears. I can’t wait to hear all about it. Today is the day you meet your horse, right? That will be so great….I know you’ll fall in love with yours quickly!! Today I’m specifically praying for you to make great friends that you can count on forever, to open your heart and mind to new things while you are listening to your leaders, and to realize how strong and brave you are. God has you exactly where He wants you right now, Jaci! He brought you to this trip and He’s going to show you so much! Keep listening….it’s going to be amazing!

    Hey Sweetheart!! I hope your still loving it on day three!! It looks like your doing amazing things! I’ve heard that you’ve been a great leader, which doesn’t surprise me at all! 🙂

    Are you liking devotions each morning? I’m so happy to hear that you’ve been talking about how God made you perfectly….exactly how He wanted you! You are so special to Him, Jaci! He has such a great plan for you if you follow Him!!

    I got to watch you live shooting your bow and arrow!! How did you like it? Had you ever shot before today?

    Did you already get to ride espresso? What did you think? I bet your horse loves you just as much as you love it!

    I can’t wait to hear all about it! Have a great night and I won’t stop praying for you and your family!

    Love you!!

Maybe you can teach me a thing or two that you are learning. You are seriously one of the coolest kids I know: Everything is going well here too so don’t worry about us. I MISS YOU! Love Gina

    Hey Jaci…looks like you are having a riot! The archery tag looks so fun! Did you get one last trail ride with Espresso? I know you will miss her so much, but it was such an amazing opportunity to have this horse for the week…so cool!

    I’m so thankful for your amazing camp counselors and your leaders! I’m sure you have learned so much from them all. They have so much wisdom and they’ve all been in the tough places where you’ve been as well. I love that they understand and will be forever role models for you! I know they all love you already! I’ve constantly heard how amazing you are, what a sweet young lady you are, and how your making friends and being a great role model to the girls! Praying these girls and leaders become forever friends!

    Tomorrow is the big day to head out on the trail. I’m sure you are nervous but this is exactly where God wants you. Jaci, He will take you through this trail…..it’ll be tough, but along the way, make sure you’re looking for signs of Him and listening. He has so much to show you and teach you over these next few days! I can’t wait to hear all about your trip and celebrate with you on Sunday! You’ve got this!

    Hey Jaci, praying this pouring rain hasn’t been pouring on you girls through the whole trail and all night! 😳 If it is, try to stay positive. It’s no fun being wet and chilly but it makes you even more thankful for a warm home and a cozy bed to go back to in a few days! You’ve got this! I’ve never done the trail but I’ve heard how hard it is, and I’m praying for you to push through and see all of God’s beauty along the way. Only 2 more days until you see your family! Keep making amazing friends and growing closer to God. Love ya and can’t wait to see you on Sunday!
