The Week I Went To Camp

Hello, dear readers! Once again I've been slacking a little bit! Apologies!!

Last week I went to Girls' Camp with my stake so I was just MIA in general :) But it was so fun!


I really tried to unplug as much as possible last week so I've only got two pictures from the whole thing! It was a long week, but full of so many awesome experiences. Here are some highlights:

  • There were only two spider incidences. I am terrified of spiders, like out of control terrified, so the fact that I only had two run-ins is a major win. 
  • It's weird being an adult. The girls would come up and ask me questions or permission to do something which has never really happened to me before. It's weird. 
  • I bought a $7 sweatshirt from Wal-mart and it might be one of my favorite clothing items in my closet. 
  • I got to hang out with the coolest ladies all week! Seriously, they are so amazing and I am super blessed that I got to spend time with them and get to know them.
  • I did a 5-mile hike with one of the other leaders (one of those super cool chicks mentioned above). I've really missed hiking since I moved away from Utah, so this little hike was a welcome surprise. 
  • S'mores. Need I say more?
  • The first day we did a ropes course which was a cracking good time. On the same trip I banged my knee super hard so now I've got this wicked bruise. 
  • The best part of camp, however, was the girls. I don't think we give teenagers enough credit, to be honest. I was so impressed with how well they watched for each, included each other, and served one another. I learned so much about being compassionate and inclusive as I watched these girls interact with one another this week. It was such a beautiful experience and I am so grateful that I was able to be involved. The weeks and months leading up to camp were so busy and sometimes stressful, but it was all worth it to be there this week!
