a little extra praying never hurts so
asking for some prayers for this week and next week. My DD12 is going off on another Girl Scout trip that will take her 5 hours away from me. She has already left once with the Japanese Girl Scouts over Memorial weekend but this time she is going to be a PA (program assistant) and will train two hours away at a different base and travel for another two hours or so to the camp.
I also feel for the girls and for the one mom that is going, one of my scout parents. She just learned today that there are no western toilets or closed showers at the campgrounds. It's all Japanese style with squatty potties and open showers. My DD and I are use to these while we do prefer the American way for bathroom needs we can put up with these conditions. I am even packing her extra soap and towels because they normally don't have those in the public bathrooms either.
