Survival

I survived a Girl Scout overnight with 19 girls ranging in age from 7 to 11 years old! Much thanks to Yvette for doing all the planning along with the other grown-ups who give me the confidence and courage to put myself in such situations. We were blessed with some spring weather, finally! I am proud to say I am the one who was able to get the fire going in spite of pretty damp wood. We were impatient and I prematurely spread out the coals for cooking s'mores and apple desserts. At that point I killed the fire and we ended up in the kitchen. I am especially proud of my little Daisies who were quite the little independent campers. Such fun makes me not want to resign next year as I continue to lament the difficulty of managing 2 troops... and a job... and a family.
Make the world a better place.
peace.

I hear ya. We are involved in Cub Scouts and various other things and on any given day we see some of these things either a blessing or a bit of a burden. Funny, tho, mostly a blessing. We are looking into getting our little girl into Girl Scouts. You made it sound like such a treat...with the fire and the smores. Made me wish I was a Girl Scout.:)
