I DID IT!
It went great. Despite the freezing cold nights and muddy days, it went as good as I dared hope. It wasn't drama free: wasp nest in the girl's tent, co-leader needing to go the hospital due to a severe migraine, big hole in our tent, some internal bickering... But really, it was fantastic! We got to do some archery (there are a lot of Katniss wannabees in the group), a night hike, star gazing, nature center, solar oven s'mores and had plenty of time just to hang out with the crazy amount of caterpillars. On a whim, I brought a bunch of watercolor paints and paper. The girls spent hours drawing nature scenes. I almost wished I had brought a book to read ;-) it was so relaxing. I am incredibly thankful that it went this well. I may have just enough confidence to do another trip in the fall!
