These kids mean the world to me…people wonder why I give up holiday days from work to spend two weeks with other people’s children…these kids are the reason…i go to give them an adventure…i go to give them the opportunity to better themselves…i go to encourage them to push themselves beyond their limits to show them that they can do anything if they put their mind to it…I do it because seeing them succeed gives me such a great sense of satisfaction…it is a week since we came home and the house is still too quiet…i miss my scouting family every time I come home from camp because they are part of my extended family!
