As soon as we made it home on Sunday (the 15th) I started laundry. Not something I would normally do on a Sunday, but I was leaving for girls camp in the morning. Getting out of town when pretty good. We had one girl that decided at the last minute that she wanted to go. We were only a little bit late getting to the camp site in Mammoth, CA. We had some good help getting our camp area set up, with only a little problem with the girls willingness to help. That problem happened off and on all week. I guess that's meant to be with teenage girls. I was the camp leader for the 2nd years. The nights were super-cold. Once I put my sleeping bag over my head I was fine. So, I slept like that all week. We had some good times. I really enjoyed visiting with the other leaders. I was even brave enough to go on the hike with the girls. Four miles up the mountain, a break at the lake, and another four miles down the mountain. I had a hard time. I had to go so slow uphill. It was, of course, much easier going down, but we were so anxious to get back we went kind of fast. I was so exhausted at the end of the day, and I had to do some extra walking around camp that evening. I had been asked to sing a song for the final evening after a special program about the Book of Mormon. I didn't do very well with our practice and I kept crying, I was pretty emotional. I just kept praying during the whole program, that I'd be able to do well and keep the spirit there. My song went perfect, and I felt confident throughout. My body hurt so bad by then that I was so glad we were going home in the morning. When I got home I started laundry, again. We were on our way to Elko that evening for the wedding reception there. Like I said the last month has been crazy busy!

Your song was sooooo good - I thought it was good watching it in real life, but then when the girls watched on the video I recorded I thought you were amazing!

Sounds like you are having a great adventurous summer. I'm sure you're happy to be home though. I was so glad to get back from my vacation. There is nothing like sleeping in your own bed. Your grass looks really great by the way.
