Hello from camp!
It's been a few days since I posted but since then I've had my first day off which was good! We went to stay in the holiday inn overnight but I slept in my sleeping bag on the floor and woke up with 34 bug bites...how lovely! It was a fun night though but I think we should have probably had less people to a room so we didn't have so many injuries to get looked at the next day! We came back to camp so I could get my bug bites checked out and James could get his neck seen to after sleeping on a chair...but anyway with the rest of the day we just took it easy and went to the mall for some food and just to relax a bit. Our enxt day off is saturday again and some people want to go to New York for the day but I'm trying to save money so we'll see!
Sunday was Disney day and I dressed up as Alice in Wonderland (even though the dress was actually Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz I thought my blonde hair wouldn't be right!) We did some special activities for the day like games revolving around a Disney theme...well the young kids did anyway, the old ones sat round a lot like we usually do! Oh well it was still fun! Yesterday was a normal schedule day but the campers had cabin photographs taken in the morning which took ages! I had the night off so me and one of my co-counselors, Aleisha, went for dinner (the mall again!) and for some exciting shopping in Target (socks and make up remover...what a joy! haha) Then we came back and I wanted to go to bed to be honest I am SO tired but my girls don't go to bed until 11:30pm and it was only 10:30pm so I didn't want to go back to the cabin early so we sat downstairs outside chatting to people for a bit. I'm glad I had the night off though because the girls had watched a horror film and you know what I'm like with them! I got back to the cabin and they were all in each other's beds looking terrified!
Tonight we have an event called Owner's Cup which is basically a big Basketball game between Echo and another camp called Monroe. We have to win!! There is also a parade for it so it's going to be really fun and 'American' haha. We have a good week this week though, Thursday night we take our 10th graders to the cinema for the night which will be nice and then Friday night I'll be off until Sunday morning so I can't complain!
Anyway I'd better go now, got to go pick my kids up from lunch (which was horrible by the way, that's why I've taken it off to eat my ravioli lol!)
Speak soon, and thank you for the mail!! I have stuff off Lynsey, Sarah and Jan so far, love it all :D Lynsey the heat top 100 thing kept my kisd entertained for ages!! haha xxx
