I really do love working with the Young Women. It isn't the easiest calling to have with four young kids and a hubby who travels a lot, but I'm fortunate...There are some super sweet girls in the group who seem to love my kids and are quick to help out.
Last night we set out on the 5-mi "hike" the girls' needed to certify for camp. There I was, with all my kids and a double stroller... the YW were very helpful to carry, care for, or push my kids (in the stroller) to help out. We took a fairly easy hike--it was even paved about 1/2 the distance. Even so, the mosquitos were awful and no one brought bug spray, and halfway through, we noticed the huge rain clouds. We jogged as much as we could to get ahead of the storm, but ended up walking the last little bit in a downpour. I seem to remember it raining every single year I went to Girls' Camp as a kid, and even last year as a leader...(that's 3 three different camps, three different states--you'd think I'd catch a break!) The real camp is in two weeks, and I'm only going for two days, so maybe I'll have a dry experience.
