BBY: Thursday

Thursday, I let my girls sleep in since Wednesday totally  wore them out. 
At 10:30 we were ready for the day. We had an educating  class on healthy eating and exercising.
Then we had a nice lunch at the Thanksgiving Point Deli 

After our lunch, we went to the dinosaur museum. 

They dug for bones for an hour and that was only because I made them stop

We than headed to a carnival that the camp puts on for the Boys and Girl Club

We had a wonderful afternoon. Our evening was wonderful and filled with the spirit. 

There was a concert from Kenneth Cope and a testimony meeting after dinner. 
 All 5 of my girls bore their testimonies in front of 250 girls. 
I am so proud of them for doing a hard thing. 
From some of them it was their first time bearing their testimonies to other people.
After the testimony meeting we went back to the hotel and got ready for bed. 

They were having a hard time listening to me, so I told them to "assemble" 

This is my favorite picture of them!

Logan,I miss you.

Today was the first day for USU
and I am not there.
Today was hard
I didn't think it would
I am kind of surprised that it was
I kept busy most of the morning by reading 
but once I finished the book I tried cleaning my room
That didn't help, I thought.. If I was in Logan I would be unpacking and putting my new room together
I took my sister shopping, that just made me think of all the times I went shopping with my roommates 
Every thing I did today my thoughts kept drifting to Logan.

I want to be there so bad. 
I want to be sitting in the living talking to my roommates 
I miss my roommates 
I miss having a constant friend always around 
I am going to miss sitting and talking with them 
I am going to miss laughing with them 
I miss my other friends in Logan
I miss my best friend
I just want to drive up there and stay 

I am also missing going to class.
I really enjoy school
now I just sit at home
and read

I don't love being at home. 
It is nice, but there is something so wonderful about being on your own
Here, I hardly have any friends 
and making new one is hard  
especially when I got to my home ward 
but I know I am supposed to be at home 
and I am trying to make the best of it 
but it is hard when every part of me wants to be in Logan.
Don't I WILL be back there soon

BBY: Wednesday

Wednesday was way wonder.
We started off the morning with a class on nutrition, exercise and  Dancing.
After everyone boarded buses and headed to UVU.
At UVU we ate a lunch and listened to  Paige Holland speak (she is totally the Kate Middleton of Utah). She is beautiful and a wonderful speaker.
We split into groups and took tour a tour of UVU, took a dancing class and did a service projects.
For dinner we ate pizza!! We ate quickly and got ready for our Princess Party!

After UVU wore us out, we had a nice bus ride back to our hotel.

BBY: Tuesday

Tuesday was probably one of my favorite days.
it started off with a divine Devotional and some dancing

Next we had a Princess Party for some very special ladies 
I was nervous for this party because I didn't know how my girls would handle girls with special needs. All 5 of them handle each special needs girl so well. My heart was so happy to see them interact and enjoy the morning 

 After we had a B.T.G. (Be There Girls)
We learned about the new charity we would be helping this year. 

doing the B.T.G. chant

then we got to go swimming well, the rest of the camp had to listen to a talk about cell phones 

We came back to the rest of the group for dinner and to present Primary Children's Hospital with fleece blankets that we made Monday afternoon. 

then we walked back to the hotel in the pouring. 
I loved this day at camp. I made so many fun memories with my girls.
