Last week was our stake YW Girl's Camp at Camp Hulaco, in Arab. We have been looking forward to this year's camp the day we came home from the preivous year's camp! That is how awesome these camps are! I am so fortunate to be the camp director which entitles me to go each year! Last week was my fourth year to go and now that I'm officially in the YW Presidency, it looks like there will be many more camps in my future! Yeah! At last minute, two of our girls decided not to go. (Their loss, not ours!)We took five girls and two leaders. Did I count myself as a girl or a leader? Anyway, were bonded so much in the four days we were at camp. Even though we have three 12-13 yr. old girls, the two older ones (about to turn sweet 16 in a couple of weeks) really made them feel accepted, therefore making a strong bond between them. I love these girls so much! They have such sweet spirits and strong testimonies that really grew throughout the time at camp. All of our girls completed their certification and they were so proud of themselves. WE were very thankful no one found a tick! I guess we found plenty of them at precamp that they decided not to bother us at the real camp! I really enjoyed seeing my friends who I went to camp in my youth with who are now leaders too. There is nothingabout camp I do not like! I can't wait till next year. There will be a new kid on the block coming to camp: my daughter Sadie! YEAH! She has been waiting so patiently to go to camp with me. So, as I said in the beginning of this blog, we are already looking forward to next year's camp!
I'm finally moving towards owning my own painting company, after wanting one of almost 25 years. I've been gaining experience of painting for others for years, which I've truly enjoyed. I'm back in school, earning another degree, but this time in Business. By having the knowledge of the behind the scenes in business, I feel I'll have a greater advantage in direction I'm headed. I look forward to overcoming obstacles and moving toward my goal of being a successful business owner. The purpose of the blog is to track my progress, from overcoming my fears, to tracking my successes.
