Drumroll please...

*Cheers and riotous applause.*

Were the last three weeks absolutely FANTASTIC? Yes.

Have I learned SO MUCH? Yes.

Am I GLAD that I've been gone? Yes.

Am I glad that I am BACK? Yes.

Adventures and childhood memories galore, amazing people, and assorted random sleep-deprived comments. Priceless, my friends. Utterly priceless.

In my time at EFY I have learned many things. These things have been primarily of spiritual nature, but also include things such as the fact that my nose is amazing. There are lines of people who wait to touch it and marvel at the amazingness. Not kidding. -->

See? Photographic evidence.

Some fun totals...

Total number of weeks: 4

Total hours of sleep any given week (on a good week): 30

Total number of amazing youth who were under my jurisdiction: 112

Total pizzas ordered: 12

Total pizzas actually eaten: 8

Total blankets made: 12

Total dances rocked out: 8+ (spur of the moment dance parties)

Total number of uploaded Facebook photos: 469

Total number of hilarious or life-changing memories: Infinite

My Amazing Fellow Counselors

x 1000 awesomeness

I would trade these experiences for nothing.

The Armies of Helaman have got nothin' on these goofy amazing kids.

Best summer ever invented... bar none. My life has been forever changed, and my faith in the future has never been brighter.

I love you all!

This really makes me wish I had had the opportunity to be an EFY counselor. It looks about as much fun as a person can have.
