Calling All Girls Camp Experts

Well, I have been called as the 3rd Year Certification Leader at camp. I have only been to girls camp as a leader once and that was as a cabin mom. I NEED ADVICE! I have received some wonderful training, but could use some help coming up with some creative ideas for teaching the girls certification. The YCL's will teach the different areas, but I really want to make it fun for the girls. Any advice, comments, words of encouragement will be gladly accepted :)

Cherish turns 12!!!

I can't believe it has been twelve years since I gave birth to my second daughter Cherish Elizabeth Olivas. She was born on February 7, 1997. She weighed in at 9lbs 8oz and was 21 inches long. Wow, what a difference it was having Cherish because Chelsea weighed only 5lbs 6oz. Cherish was born with the chubbiest cheeks I had ever seen. She was such a doll and the nurses couldn't get enough of her (or should I say her cheeks!) Cherish is a wonderful daughter, who has many talents. We are so grateful for her in our family.

Cherish started her own business this past year. It is called Cheri's Treats, Triple C Inc. They make custom cakes and cupcakes. She is such an entrepenuer.

Cherish loves her dog Twinky. She had begged for a dog for over 2 years, she even saved all her money to buy dog toys and a dog tag, which read "Twinky". We found the best dog ever a year and a half ago. They truly love each other.

Cherish loves Goofy. Her Grandpa surprised us all with Breakfast at Goofy's kitchen this past year on our family trip to Disneyland.
Happy Birthday Cherish, we love you very much and are so grateful for the beautiful and talented daughter that you are.......
