Well on Sunday I dropped of my little girl and her camping buddy Nevaeh to Camp for the week.
These girls have been camping together every summer since they were 6 years old.
Nevaeh's mother & I got emotional walking the girls to their cabin as it hit us just how much they have grown. We stopped and took lots of pictures along they way in all the same spots we did on their first trip and I can't wait to compare just how much they have grown from then till now.
I am so proud of these girls for being such great Girl Scouts through & through. They push themselves to try new things and this year felt adventurous and signed up for Water Camp.
They will get to water ski, white water raft, white water kayak, tubing and even possibly parasail! I've never even tried any of these things, except 1 time going rafting! I am grateful that Girl Scouts has given these girls the determination to push their boundaries and courage to try these new things!
I'm grateful to Girl Scouts for opening up the world to my child and to me!
I'm also very grateful that we live in an age of digital technology and even though I'm over 2 hours away I can get to peek at the girls through Facebook and see just how much fun they are having!
As an adult volunteer it's easy to lose sight of the girls amongst all of the drama created by other adult volunteers but it just takes 1 picture, 1 experience to turn it all around and make things crystal clear of why we do what we do!
Here's a little peek into Camp and what my Girl Scout is doing.
That's my girl up on those skis! GO GIRL SCOUT GO!!!!!
