Saturday

off to camp...

I have been posting so sporadically the last few weeks because.... I am a Girl Scout. Yep, I am. Bet you thought they were all just cute little girls selling cookies in front of the grocery store. But I'm proof that sometimes they grow up and still get a little teary-eyed when they recite the G.S. promise.

Every summer I have the pleasure of being a director for one session of camp. It takes a lot of work throughout the year (and the week leading up to it is C-R-A-Z-Y) but the actual week of camp is an absolute blast. unless you count the snakes. always lots of rattlesnakes. and yellow jackets. and ticks. hmmmm-

Really though, I get to reconnect with old friends and make new ones. I've watched some of the campers go from being little girls to teenagers, and now they're young adults. It's an experience I have really enjoyed and hope to continue doing for many, many years to come.

I wouldn't trade it for anything. although by Friday I'd trade it for a soft pillow and a long, long nap. So long to you for the next week... say a little prayer that I don't meet up with any angry snakes, OK?

Hope you have a good trip! I love Girl Scouts, and OF COURSE the cookies. :)
I was only a Brownie when I was a kid, and really just because I wanted the Brownie handbook. Now I'm sorry I didn't keep at it. It sounds wonderful!
