Today while talking to my buddy C, I knew what my new blog would be about. She was telling me about this great new camp she attended with a child she mentors. It was a Christian camp and it was amazing. There were many things she loved about the camp, but her favorite thing was their motto: I am number THREE!

I mean, c'mon people, even God after creating the world said "...and it was good".
