This weekend is the prize due to all the planning. hunting and gathering: Camping with the Girl Scouts. I am so looking forward to watching the scouts rule the site. For the chaperons are there only to insure they don't torch the place while testing out their fire starting prowess.
Like my own children, I love to watch these individuals grow and change. I love it when they take on responsibility and prove it to themselves that they can succeed -- rain or shine. They will be cooking, cleaning, providing lessons for each other, and mapping out games and activities. Both young and old scouts, taking charge and offering support.
