There's a lot that has been happening lately, so I'm going to bunch all the news into one post.
Every year, Anna and I go up north with the whole family to a small resort on a lake. There were 25 of us this year. We had boatloads of fun tubing, jets-skiing, playing games, chatting, eating, swimming, midnight swims, having long nights around the campfire, finishing, and creating wonderful memories.
Our annual, "Everyone jump off the dock together!" I think we got 15 up on there :)
We fish. A lot. We caught 103 fish between us five younger cousins.
The lake is just gorgeous up there. Especially at night, when the sun is setting in the picture above.
2. Camp NaNoWriMo
Katie: I have completed my goal! I hit 31,000 words in the month of July, which is 6,000 more words than my goal was :) I'm officially a Camp NaNoWriMo winner, which is super exciting :D
3. KATIE FINISHED HER NOVEL, FAITH!
Yup. You read that correctly. *dances around* I, Katie, as of Friday, July 25th, have finished Faith with a total of 73,809 words. This is the first novel that I've finished, and is a huge accomplishment. It took me 193 days, and few weeks break, it will be time to start editing! I am so excited about this; a huge thank you to those who have been encouraging me throughout his journey!
