Big Changes For Me

Many of you know I have been the Laurel’s Advisor in my ward now for over four years. I have just been given a new calling, and have been released from Young Women. Of course I am excited for something new, but I am really sad to say goodbye to my beautiful girls. I love them, and they are all so amazing and fun. I’ve had so much fun being able to spend time with them, and I feel like I’ve watched them all grow up.

This is just a random picture of most of the from Girl’s Camp last year. The good news is, I’ve been called to come up to camp with the Stake, so I don’t feel too deprived! And here’s to my new calling with Activities Days.. did I say that right? I love all the amazing girls and leaders I’ve had fun working with in my ward!! I will miss you SO much!

I have been gone this whole past week at Girls Camp on our Stake property. I had so much fun! I thought I’d share a few pics from my week.
Because of all our summer rain, we were able to see so many beautiful wild flowers that aren’t usually around this time of year.

One of my favorite parts of the property is the meadows. It’s what always comes to mind for me when I think of Girl’s Camp.

One other thing we got to do was have fires! It’s been a while since we could have a fire due to the property being too dry. My ward’s camp daddy was awesome! He taught us how to make our fires colorful.. they were so pretty. You get a copper tube (from Home Depot) and cut it into smaller pieces (like a foot long). Cover the copper tube in a hose that’s cut to the same size. Put it into the fire and you have blues and purple flames with the orange. It was crazy! I am definitely doing it my next camping trip (which happens to be the Tetons this weekend). I learned all kinds of fun camping stuff. Believe it or not, I’ve never roasted a starburst before, and I couldn’t get enough! I’ll also be doing banana boats my next campout. Lots of fun stuff!!

My fav..

I love girl’s camp!
