I got the text to call my mom while I was at a week long camp up on the sunshine coast, I took my phone and sat down on one of my favorite beaches staring out into the beautiful sun hanging over the ocean surrounded by trees.   Behind me I could hear the girls laughing and enjoying the program I had planned for them.   I took the news like a good women in our family does - Strong and Optimistic.  When I hung up the phone  I put my face in my hands and I cried.   I cried in fear, I cried for my mom, for my dad and I just let it wash over me.

So here we go, what happened to the summer?  Apparently I worked through it LOL.

For my faithful readers in the Vancouver Area, if you want to sign up as a leader or district guider you can always email me!   Depending on which role (or if your as silly as many roles) you take on, your commitment can be a few hours each month or week.   We are of course always looking for leaders who want to fill in for leaders who are sick or who want to be ratio leaders for camps and events.   Its a great organization to volunteer with and you can make a significant difference in the lives of young girls!

If you are wanting to sign up…
