Things I have learned from my girls this weekend at girl scout camp and at our first race together:
Water bugs do not bite, but they sure look gross.
It is very important, as a parent and leader, to put on your GAME face regarding water bugs to avoid freaking out some very impressionable young girls.
7-year old girls are very adventurous when creek walking at girl scout camp.
Adult leaders are a bit less adventurous, and not nearly as fun, as the girls while creek walking.
No matter how rocky the ground gets, holding onto a good friend for support will always see you through.
Helping a scared child overcome a fear is one of the best feelings in the world.
Being hot and sticky isn't fun, but being surrounded by good friends makes all that hotness & stickiness go away.
Sharing time together creates memories they will cherish as much as I will - even if it was 100 degrees.
Pushing yourself is hard to do, but the end result is so empowering.
Winning isn't everything, but playing in the mud is! :)
Spending time with a good friend is one of life's best gifts.
Hay bales are VERY hard to climb over.
Slip and slides will never stop being fun.
Mud doesn't come out after one wash, or two washes, or, quite possibly, three.
What a great time with Abby & Keely this weekend. I hope they enjoyed it as much as I did.
