Girl's Camp is over. Look at all my beautiful girls. It was a wonderful week. I am just now coming out of my "no sleep" fog. It was the hardest and most incredible time. I have a few pics to let you know how my week at camp was.
This is Melissa, she is my right hand and sane mind. If you could have one on no sleep. I could not have done this with out her. I feel that the great blessing of this calling was meeting her.
I haven't laughed so hard, or cared so much. By Wednesday we were finishing each other's sentences, and by Friday we were speaking in stereo. She was always reminding me to breathe and that all things are fine, and if things were out of my control, it was an "Oh, well." moment. She is my dear friend, I am thankful that I had her with me this year. I refuse to do camp without her.
This is Melissa and my cabin after 3 days of busy people. Foam stickers on the walls for the first 2 days (princesses themed on Tuesday, Island themed on Wednesday), then came the yarn. I was quite impressed with the yarning skills of our pranksters. We had yarn through the legs of our pants, around handles, it was a work of art. Then came Friday night, we went to bed at 2 am and woke to this . . .
(Sorry Melissa, I kept it small).
We woke early to open our door and find it filled with styrofoam beanbag beads and a message that said, "To our favorite princesses - from the peanuts".
We were also "Padded". Needless to say, we had a lot of fun. The girls were great.
Here are just a few pics of some of the "fun" that was to be had a camp.
This is the gator that we drove around. Yes, I drove a gator. I slid down most of the hills, but the girls learned to stay out of my way.
This is the
final moment of camp. Some one else was selected to go into the pool, the YCL's (youth counselors) felt I was still looking a little hot and dusty.
So as you can see. I had to take a swim. At least they let me take off my shoes, watch and glasses.
I loved my experience at camp. I felt the Lord's hand guiding me through this experience and I have grown and learned and I am a better person because of it. I also learned that my heart can grow so big that it could love 246 people at once. 178 of them were the Young Women and the rest were my wonderful Stake Staff and Ward Camp Directors. I have met some amazing people, I just can't describe how my life has changed.
