End of Summer is near

The end of the summer is near. I have very up and down feelings about
that. In many ways it has been a very hard summer and in many ways it
has been a great summer.

We have lots of challenges before us to figure out how to unify the
staff more. What is the perfect mix of new and old. How will we
format camp.

We have been playing around with many ideas for camp for next summer.
Sailing or not sailing different aspects of camp.

But the most exciting thing about camp coming to a close this year is
not that we are going on vacation but that soon we will have a new
additon to our family. This is very very very exciting and we are
looking forward to this.

Well I am sure as the summer nears the end. My blogging will become
more and more active.

Eighth Week

This past week was one of the strangest weeks I have ever encountered.

We had pranks with people putting food in cabins. We had homesick
campers on the trail. We have massive amounts of drama. But we will
make it through.

ON Sunday we picked up Sarah from the Airport. She seemed to have had
a real good time on her trip to europe.

I have found a website that I am enjoying really good political

Well the summer rapidly coming to a close. So far things have been
really crazy. This is been the hardest summer yet.

Good news is that one of my staff is returning from "sick leave".
Which makes me very happy and content. I anxiously await her return.

The relationships that the staff build while they are at camp is
always unique. It always seems that a couple of staff members get
there "hearts broken" during the summer. Mostly the males!

Naomi and I are doing really well. Her back has been hurting her a
little bit. But she has found ways to cope with it. She is so sweet.
We are going go and pick up her sister from the airport on Sunday!

Well More later...

End of Fourth Week

Wow what can I say! The fourth week also a challenge. We continue to experience a plethora of rain. Still facing challenges with staff. We had staff members take kids offsite this week. I was extremely frustrated. Also had a staff member put his hand through a window in a door and we also had a staff member put the salad bar through a door. Both were accidently. But it is amazing how things happen in pairs..
