Summer is finally on its way, and that means that those temperatures are going to start slowly climbing, up, up, and up! While there are many things that you can do in the summer that you can’t do in the winter (swimming outside, wearing shorts, going to summer camp and more), something else you should be aware of us, is how much water you are drinking. It is very important to drink water year round, but in the summer when it is very hot, your body tends to sweat more, and it is up to you to make sure you replace that water!

Going to summer Resident Camp is a world apart from our usual routine! It is an action packed, fun environment where we learn many new skills. Girls who go to summer camp can plan on taking in a TON of helpful knowledge that will help down the road. Most people know that campers will learn about hiking and nature, they may learn to paddle a boat, or how to make the most amazing friendship bracelets. Campers will definitely leave camp knowing far more silly songs they knew when they arrived, and they may even learn about archery, climbing, and sling-shots. These are all super fun things to learn about, but you will learn many more skills than that, that you may have never expected! Here are some of the things I learned as a camper and counselor at summer Resident Camp.

A few posts ago, Lindsay announced our new GSOH virtual book club. Our first book, Stargirl, is a favorite of mine. In her post, Lindsay challenged us to do an activity from the Science of Happiness badge. Here’s the challenge:
Stop and smell the roses! Pay attention to the little things that make you happy. Try taking mental photographs of the things you love throughout your day – it might be a pretty sunset, a fuzzy dog, or a food that tastes really good. Record three to five things every day.
I decided to take the challenge and here are my five things from yesterday:
1. A great conversation with new friends
2. Starting a new, and interesting, book
3. Planning a vacation day to see my friend and her new baby!
4. A delicious cookie (iced pumpkin, in case you were wondering)
5. Laughing out loud during a TV show

Some people are born to travel. I, on the other hand, have yet to catch a major world travel bug. In fact, I’ve only just barely traveled outside of the U.S. (Tijuana, Mexico, during a trip to San Diego, CA and Stratford, Canada for a high school trip). I just don’t quite have the patience to plan and the yearning to travel to far away places (not to mention, the $$ to spend!). Mostly, I prefer to stay close to home.
Now that I think about it, I realize that I have done quite a bit of traveling in my lifetime.
Here I am during a hiking trip in Daniel Boone National Forest, KY, 2012

Quite a few of us on the program team here at GSOH love to read, so let’s start our own book club! At the beginning of the month, we’ll announce our selection, along with a challenge or fun activity. Toward the end of the month, we’ll post a few questions and fun discussion topics that you can debate in the comments section. We’ll even take suggestions for the next month’s book selection!
