I survived!

Rating: 1 votes, 5.00 average.
I had a delightful week at girl's camp! Ok, it rained. It rained a lot! 3 hours after getting home last night my feet still had wrinkles! Surprised I didn't have fungus going down there! I had a great week with the 123 girl's and we all learned a lot. We only meant to teach them how to start a fire without match's but we quickly had to show them how to start a fire in the rain so they could cook their food for dinner! We all came out better for the experiences we had this last week. I hadn't been to camp for 36 years so I'm glad our girl's tolerated me all week! I sure was glad to soak in a nice hot bath when I got home!

I'm 55 today! What a special day I've had! A million birthday wishes at church today and a ton of cards to read but the ones from our young women with their lovely notes of love after camp we're extra special to me! My family made dinner and had gifts. My husband bought me a lap top computer and a new all in one printer! it's my first ever laptop computer! My daughter made me a wooden hanging rack to hang my pans on! They will install it next weekend! she did a great job on it and finished it beautifully! Still recovering from a week with little sleep! How those girl's could stay up until 1 or 2 am talking each night and then get up at 5:30 am ready to go still amazes me! It'll take these old bones a few days to fully recover! Sure enjoyed those sweet spirits! Truly angels sent to bless us!

    Now we aren't that old yet--that we can't remember how they could stay up so late and still be back up in the early morning....It was only yesterday that we did the same Lolll.
    Wonderful memories that you will hold dear to your heart in years to come...

    Happy Birthday, so wonderful to hear that you had such lovely experiences to help you celebrate!!!!

    Wish the weather had been nicer while you were at camp but what a valuable lesson for all those girls. I know a few boy scouts who do not have a clue how to find a dry piece of wood to save thier life if they needed to.

    No place like home, I would probably be in the bath for a long, long warm soaking.

    Happy belated Birthday. Sounds like you had a great day. And as for the warm bath, I bet you really enjoyed that one. I know I would have.
