Sorry it's been a while! It has been pretty hectic here! I will start from when my last blog was and work from there...
I've been sick for a while because of all the getting in and out of the lake on a not-so-good day.... but anyway. On our first night of orientation (26th june)we sat aroun campfire and had "S'mores" which are a chocolate and marshmellow melted in between two bits of cookie... so perfect apart from the marshmellows.. so i didn't try them. but they smelt good :P And we sang songs and learned the Chipinaw song (Oh my gosh I cant believe how many chants the kids have, it is ridiculous... the camp spirit here is incredible!).
27th June: Had more orientation stuff... meetings etc. Then we went bowling! Met this awesome Irish guy called Luke who reminded me of Karen :( There are 4 Irish people, 3 girls and the one guy.
28th June: More orientation stuff... then at night we had a 'tacky social'! It was so funny! The things people came up with! One of the Aussies went as Amy Winehouse because 'she's the tackiest thing there is'! I wore my boxers on the outside of my black leggings then fluro yellow top then my pink superman cape... it was cool :P i'm actually considering it for a 21st theme... it was so fun!
30th June: today we got up and had a lot of last minute cleaning to do then around 4 pm my girls came!!! i have 6 14 year olds (well 2 of them are going to turn14 soon, including one tomorrow!) and they are lovely! So much fun! Camp is what they count down to and it's like an 8 week slumber party, there's always music going and they're usually singing at the top of their voices and dancing around!
2nd July: Had my first OD shift (On Duty: 9.30pm - 12.30am) last night, which involved sitting on the front porch. So tiring I swear :P Then after breakfast Sheryl (Director of Chipinaw Girls campus) announced we had bunk photos which was horrible news to me considering I hadn't washed my hair in a week :P ah well. i went for a kayak around while the kids were on their "icee" break... it's a half hour break where they have cookies or icecream or something, and we just hang around the dock cos it's not long enough to leave. So we all do fun water things :) Went Walmart which was CRAZY but i got a $13 hoodie, $2 hat for lifeguarding, $3 T-shirt and stuff... good times! Oh and letter writing stuff... can people email me their addresses? Yes that means YOU
4th July (Today finally yay!) Had a free period first (feel like I'm back at college :P) so I went to visit my friend Michelle in ceramics and i made a pot. then on the kids icee break I went on the speedboat with John and Sarah while Margot attempted to waterski out the back :P
I got 3 items of mail today! Which was a pleasant suprise!!Two cards of Claire and a letter with my social security number in it :P
Tonight is Friday night which means Jewish ceremonies and wearing white... then we had fireworks for Independance day!
Okay well that brings everyone up to date, anything you want me to inclde next time write it either in email or on the message board, don't forget to email me your addresses.
Love, Han xoxo
