I got to the church for youth group and out walked James Pahl my youth minister. We ended up to the church an hour early so we sat in the fireside lounge and talked and blogged. It was pretty fun. In fact thats why I am blogging right now. Later we are going to play wii and hang out. He is pretty cool and hanging out was pretty cool.
On Monday I will begin my back to school adventure. I'm a little nervous because it is my first year of high school, and it doesn't help that it is a new school. I am going to be in Geometry, biology, and all those other cool classes. I enjoyed my long lazy summer and now that I have to go back to school just makes me sad. Just kidding, it will be a good year.

This past week I was at Kimball Camp in Reading Michigan for Band Camp. Last year I participated in Band Camp with my old band at Eastside Jr. Sr. High School. This year I went with my new school Grand Ledge. My past experiences at Band Camp have kind of been relaxed ones. This year was very different. Lets just say I received a reality check. It was much different, you worked longer, harder, and you did over and again until it was right. That is what made it much different from my old school. Going into band camp I was a little nervous because of the things I heard about my new band director Mr. Kaufman. I had heard that he was really mean and he was no fun to be around. My band director in fact this week did work us to the bone, but as the week ended I had gained an immense amount of respect for him and having him as my band director just made me wish he wasn't leaving. In spite of all the rain and nasty weather I had a lot of fun.

Today I got the chance to play in the Great Lakes Christian College Golf Benefit with my Dad. I had a great time. I enjoy golfing with my Dad and it is something I plan on doing for the rest of my life. After we got done golfing there was a dinner at the college. So we went and ate, and after we got done eating there was raffle drawings. The deal was if your number is picked you can pick from free rounds of golf to golf apparel. So my number was drawn I went up not and picked a prize. Not knowing that I could pick free rounds of golf I just walked up grabbed a hat and walked off. What I didn't know is that I missed out on a good deal. I could have golfed for free at a course where it would that my Dad would have spent seventy dollars on. Long story short pay attention next time. For the most part it was a fun day.

We just recently returned from Northmen at about eleven thirty Thursday night and I was glad to be back in my bed. I really enjoyed Northmen. Once again we went to the sessions and I have to say although I have a hard time paying attention during the sermons I really enjoyed Ron Otto's sermon, it was by far the best that I had heard. Northmen is an experience that I will never forget and I plan on going back next year.

So here I am at Houghton Lake getting ready to go to the Northmen. One of my dad's friends has a Cabin up in Houghton Lake. It is a tradition for me and my dad and my brother go up to Northmen on Sunday but this year we went up on Tuesday. So while all of you are enjoying your hot showers and your cozy beds we will be sleeping on cots in a tent.
