I wonder sometimes why I put myself through this, especially when I'm aching after an hour of jumping at Sky Zone trampoline park this afternoon. I would never pretend that this one week is going to teach them all they need to know about these values. But it was certainly worthwhile to have some intentional conversations about what respect means, when and whom to obey, and how to be kind in a way that's meaningful to that person. And despite the occasional bickering and tired girls, they are three of my favorite people to hang out with. They teach me plenty about life -- and about Doctor Who -- and they are not shy about calling me out when I'm hypocritical or crabby or negative or anything else that I've tried to teach them NOT to be. I'm blessed to be a camp "counselor" to three such terrific girls. And now I'm going to collapse on the couch for the rest of the night. Have a great weekend, all!
