Days for Girls Updates! Nothin’ but Fun!

IMG_1720So here’s what we’ve been up to with our Days for Girls work.  I tell my friends I go to parties several times a week!  It’s nothin’ but fun, which also happens to be our family’s vacation motto.  Speaking of which, we are leaving for the beach in a couple of days.

I just thought it might be interesting for some of you to see what is happening here in our mountain valleys since we started this movement among women.  It’s absolutely amazing and I’m proud to be a part of it.  I am surrounded by wonderful women and young ladies who look for ways to serve and help others.  Let us know if you have a group of women who want to help.  We can make that happen.

Tonight as I was running around, trying to get things here ready to leave behind for 2 weeks, my son Adam turned to me and said, “Mom.  Just tell all those girls not to have a period this month so you can go to the beach and forget them.”

I wonder if that’s possible.
