Worm Update

Phew…I made it through the worms!

Now that just sounds completely appetizing, doesn’t it?!

And, it turned out to be a wonderful day…worms and all. Here’s why:

Reason #1) The scenery was amazingly beautiful.

Reason #2) Even though I came home with my shoes and pants sopping wet and muddy, it did not rain even one time while we were the park! Thank you God for small miracles.

Reason #3) The girls in my group were just awesome. And, it turns out that they aren’t really girls…they are TOMBOYS through and through. They made a day trekking through a state park a complete breeze.

Reason #4) Remember the Mrs. Vaughn lady who was supposed to be the co-leader of my group and I was praying that she wouldn’t mind doing four pages of worm activities while I was the group photographer? Well, that’s exactly who she was. She was perfect.

She’s my new best friend.

Reason #5) And remember when I was whining, “Why, oh why, couldn’t I be put into a group with at least one dad?” It was a legitimate whine, but a whine nonetheless.

Well, an extra dad showed up and his daughter was in my group so he was in my group too.
*
Seeing him with his daughter made me wish that Bill had been able to skip his “very important meeting” so that I could of taken pictures of him and Weslea holding hands. {sigh}
The only major problem throughout the entire day was that I got a lot of back and rear-end pictures while the girls ran madly from one place to the other.

I mean, can you even believe these gals?

They loved the worms. I still most definitely do not.

My girl and I had a wonderful “Mom & Me” day.

And, she was super-thrilled that her best bud, “J”, was in our group.

It was a perfect day for my little tomboy…and for me too. Those darn worms and all.
