Off to Camp

So, when I heard that Isabel's Brownie troop was going to go camping, I was so excited...and then they said "January." Burrrr!!! She sold a TON of cookies though that helped make this possible, and I really didn't want her to miss out on it. And then they wouldn't be getting home until Sunday afternoon either. Well, it ended up working out. They were in cabins...nothing fancy...but HEATED. Ah, such relief! They weren't going to be digging snow caves and sleeping outside! I decided I'd travel up early Sunday morning to pick her up and be back on time for church (and we were) that resolved the "Sunday" thing for us.
Isabel was a little nervous about going and being away for the whole weekend and camping without family. I knew she'd have a great time though, so we said prayers and got her ready to go.
Results: She had a fabulous time. I picked up her other LDS friend Sunday morning to bring them both home, and they sang their camp songs all the way home...and it was SO SUPPER CUTE! I wish I had it recorded!! I knew from their enthusiasm that they had a good time. I'm so glad that she was able to have the good memories of Girl Scout Camp. I love the Girl Scout program for my girl--it has been great. I remember the fun I had in it when I was young, and I'm glad she can have similar memories.
