You could probably tell over the last month or so the posts on my blog have been a little slow coming. It’s because Mason and I were crazy busy helping with The Boise Youth Spectacular. It’s similar to Especially for Youth for those who know what that is. About one thousand teens come for three days to hear inspirational speakers, meet other kids, and to find direction for their life. It’s put on by our church, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. We feel so blessed that we’ve been part of this for the past three years. This year, Mason and I were Counselor Directors. So in the grand scheme of things there are the youth, which are split up into groups of about 16. Each group then had two counselors which were young adult age. Mason and I were over the counselors. We had a lot of work we did leading up to the grand event. But it was sooooooo worth it! Check out a video made by B Roll Production Company of the first two days. I’m not in it much… in the background a lot…but Mason will be hard to miss. When they played this video on the last day, all the kids screamed for him when he came on screen. It was adorable. I love my guy. Also, the girl holding the Jonas sign is my sister. So you know what’s going on… the youth are in street clothes or in blue t-shirts, the counselors are wearing red, staff are wearing white ts and executive staff (that’s us!) are wearing white polos.
what we’ve been up to
