I thought that since I had been a  military brat for the first fifteen years of my life I would adjust pretty easily. […]

Prone to Wander

Yes, I know the title of this post is bizzare. And yes, I do realize I haven’t written a blog post in forever. But first things first and I’ll get to my actual post. This summer, I worked at a camp for children and adults with special needs called Camp Spearhead in Marrietta, SC. My […]
