While we have fun as a family, the fun she had this week is different. She was able to try new things that she may not have the opportunity to do with us, such as zip lining and rock climbing. Unfortunately for her adventurous spirit, her parents are both terrified of heights.
Each day she was able to pick new activities so she was continually trying new things. Among her favorite was kayaking. My Baby Girl, who is just 7 years old, was set afloat alone in a kayak. I'm pretty sure I would have been a nervous wreck, but what did she do? She learned how to paddle. And she thought it was easy.
She is excited to return again for a week later in the summer and I am very excited for her. I'm excited that each day is new and full of expectation and that she is willing to take it head on. I'm proud that she is a Girl Scout.
