Unchartered Territory

Well, I'm going somewhere I've never gone before......and I will admit that in all honesty, I am somewhat nervous.
I will be challenged beyond my comfort zone. I will be forced to speak another language, and interact with a group of people I normally don't interact with.
I'm going to junior camp.
I have been asked to speak at camp for 8-11 year olds. Now if you know me, this is new......I am really good with teens, adults.....but with this age,  I am a little concerned.
I am trying to think back to the fall when I spoke in a grade 5/6 class of girls about peer pressure. They were cool.....they were fun..we giggled, and blushed.......but it was only for an hour, not for a week.
And, now I don't know if this is true, I've only heard rumors of it....but apparently boys that age are all about farting and burping. I am not a good burp er....the other thing....never mind.
Now I know one boy who I am in love with, in that age category......Anthony......but he and his debonair ways seem so much older than these boys. He understands that I can't play WII before 7:30am, without coffee. He gets me. He's got an old soul.
And so today has been about writing teachings geared towards that age group....and it amuses me, that this is so stressful. I need to lighten up, to loosen up.
And so onward I press, trying to think of cool object lessons that will help me get my point across.
