Friends that will last a lifetime

Today we went to the King Farm and stayed from about 8 to 3:30. Needless to say, everyone was exhausted and especially relieved once it began raining. We broke into groups for the project and surveyed different plots of land. After we got into the vans, all of the boys and about three girls went to the last res trip. Finally we got to see Blanton and Rhett dougie in the commons. It was good.

At the end of the day we realized how hard it would be to leave all of our people(copyright Rhett Lundy). Over the past two weeks we have created friends that will last a lifetime. I have learned so many things about amazing people as well as been guided to find out things about myself. From Devonte’s drumming in the middle of the night to Jed’s Starship singing… from Connor’s healthy obsession with snakes to Rhett’s hatred of clothing… from Helena’s elegance to Mary’s royalty… from Clark’s stanky farts to Ben’s POOP DOLLA… from Ryan’s laugh to Martin’s sass… we will cherish these moments for the rest of our lives. I don’t think we’ve ever met so many people just like ourselves from so many different places. We’ve had so many life-changing trips, conversations, and experiences. It’s currently about 2 AM and Rhett and I(Rachel) refuse to sleep. We don’t want to miss a minute of hanging with our people! Many amazing things have happened including making friends with people from other camps. Hah. We’re even going to miss the hoards of daddy long legs in the common room. We will never forget everyone we have met along the way.
