One more day….

having a blast at camp – waiting for the troop!

One more day….

It is the day before camp and I need to pack and finish a multitude of other need to do tasks and all through the house, and probably twenty or so other homes!….

The past couple of weeks have been busy getting ready for camp at meetings and anticipation…. for nine scouts it is their first time, for the other twenty it is like re-newing a freindship with an old friend and for six of those scouts it means getting home for NYLT in Rochelle cleaning up, repacking, and getting ready for another week at scout camp! And for three other T35 scouts – we’ll be meeting them at camp – Davis, Nick, and Steven Dan…. (just can’t keep those two straight sometimes – edited 4/10/13)

Exciting!

our scouts before a week of NYLT in Rochelle, IL

And, I still need to pack for camp and complete a few more updates……

I can’t wait for scout camp, but I don’t like the anticipation, the getting ready for it, the packing, and the frenzy surrounding getting there. Once I get there, it’s all right – actually once I leave the parking lot and head north it’s better, but it’s the getting there part that makes me drag my feet. This will be my fifth scout summer camp; one when I was a scout in ‘74 and for the past four years with W as a scout leader and driver. This will also be my third year as camp blogger and I love it!

You can check out the past couple of camps, here are the links to go back in time –

but you can follow along as I will be blogging on the troop site and MtDC, I guess simul-blogging and I have a few new ideas to add to bring the camp experience back home for our parents. In the meantime, I still need to pack and finish a few other things before I head north.

You can follow our adventures by adding your e-mail in the box in the upper right corner of the site – you’ll get pictures, video, and updates from camp and when ever a new post is added to the website after camp… regardless, you’ll be in for a bit of fun and adventure.

The weather looks great – it always is – weather in the north woods of Wisconsin is always wonderful – warm days, cool nights, and plenty of sunshine and fresh air. I can’t wait. Today is gonna be a great day – I know it and can feel it, but tomorrow is gonna be a million and six times better. Making the Days Count, one day at a time, one task crossed off at a time, even when the clock is ticking!
