We are back from dinner for a few minutes. The girls are telling riddles and jokes to each other with lots of giggles. We get a text another part of our group is ready for us to come over for make your own sundaes. We gather to walk over together and I notice one of my girls is wearing sunglasses.
Me: "E, do you know it's dark outside? Do you think you need to wear your sunglasses?"
E: "I'm hiding my ego!"
We all burst into laughter. High schoolers are clever, cute, and full of themselves. The best part was everyone laughed. This trip is about building a community. I hope moments like these will help them through their season.
