We drove back to Girls Camp yesterday afternoon to spend the last evening with the girls, and a final dinner. This campsite is GORGEOUS!!! I usually don't crave camping, but this place made me wanna go camping badly! Pearce couldn't wait to get back up there. Each day she asked if it was Thursday. And finally when it was, I told her after she woke up from her nap. Sure enough when she awoke, the first thing she said to me was "Let's put my shoes on. Let's go to Girls Camp! Let's GO GO GO!!" And we did.
Both Pearce and I had a blast last night. I'm in heaven anytime my hair is played with, and these young teenage girls are AWESOME and they were fighting over doing all sorts of crazy fancy braids in my hair. No need to fight girls, each take a turn! And my hair was played with the majority of the night. I really haven't seen Pearce this happy for this long of a period of time. I wish there was a stronger word than HAPPY. All the girls are SO sweet and held her hand and took her to the lake, and played with her. And let her go in their tents, and sit in their big girl chairs. She was the youngest beehive there.
Eyeing the water for the first time. Really really wants to go in.
happy, happy, happy
Final canoeing of the day.
Hi girls! I wish I could go for a little ride!
playing around. thoroughly enjoying the perfect evening weather and breeze. and perfect views of the lake.
I love these sweet, fun girls.
Pearce was trying to do her own handstand, but really it was more like a summersault. But oh so impressive, Pearce. All the girl's cheered her on.
Can I get a picture with my little "camper"? :-) Probably the best night of her life.
Can you see Pearce below. I'm tellin' ya' -- she's one of the big girls now!
Beautiful fresh air.
