9:30 Early Check-In begins
Retrieve Passports, Baggage Claim (scripture totes), fill out luggage tags (a highlight of the day was Brother Riddle's security station. The girls then filled out their passports- which was my favorite project to create- picked up their scripture totes, made a luggage tag, grabbed pretzels/water and then played games until we kicked off)
10-10:20 Board Flight
10:20 Prepare to take off! (Celestial Heir-ways flight 747)
Flight instruction- Flight Attendant Brady (she did such a fantastic job! the girls were in stitches when she did a dance showing the girls all the exits. She tried to detect a threat of bad attitude and needed the girls help to get off the ground... so they stretched their wings left and right and even in the back).

Musical Number by Becky and Kami Garcia
In-flight movie (President Uchtdorf's "Your True Identity") / pretzels and juice

All Sing “I am a Child of God” in sign language
(This really was a sweet, wonderful day for me to see these beautiful girls, all in matching shirts, learning about the gospel and making friends. Every time I stood to talk, I cried. The spirit was so strong... I felt the spirit surround me all day long and my testimony was really strengthened. I have learned that to serve is to love. I have never worked so hard on something- and I have never felt so much love for "strangers" like I did... 300 plus of them. The ladies I serve with now seem long time friends. I am so grateful for their hard work so that this day could come together. They really looked out for me. I am so grateful for Brandon and the kids support they gave as I ran around like a crazy lady, going to meetings, and preparing for the day. For all the crazy events that seemed to come up the week before camp... the most important thing to remember is how Heavenly Father blessed us. How all the problems worked out so easily, it's as if they were the better option. I am so grateful for this sweet calling and so grateful for this chance to serve and love the girls in my Stake.)
until next year...
