A tired and worn out hello to ya parents!! Man are we burnin’ some energy up here tonight! You could have heard all the campers cheering all across the mountain tonight as we hosted one of the largest sporting events around the world right here at Skyline! Of course theres that other thing in London that’s goin’ on, but NBC couldn’t get the broadcasting rights to our competition here at camp and had to settle for the other thing over in the UK. (that’s for the United Kingdom, not University of Kentucky, you UK fans calm down…it’ll be basketball season soon enough for ya). If you guys thought you saw the agony of defeat and the thrill of victory on the Olympics, then you should have been here tonight! We had all the Olympic events like the water balloon toss, the pull your partner on a broom relay, bounce on the giant blue bouncy thing (you’ll know it when you see the pics), and of course our stack 7 chocolate snacks on your club leaders head relay. I’m pretty sure we won gold in all those events! All the girls were cheering their clubmates on to victory all throughout the night and I promise ya, they won’t have any problem fallin to sleep tonight!! (Either will I to tell ya the truth!!) After all the events were finished and the girls voices completely gone, our final results were…. Bronze medal Mounties, Silver medal Rangers, and the Terrific Troopers came home with the GOLD!!!! Way to go girls, They all gave it a great effort!!!
To tell ya the truth, I’m surprised they had the energy to even compete today after the busy day we had in all our classes and of course our out of camp trips. If you haven’t seen the pics, yet, be sure to check out the Ocoee rafting pics that will be up in a few minutes and the caving pics that are already up online. Those girls on the cavin trip were really getting’ down (get it, down in the cave??? Come on now, after the long day I’ve had that’s pretty funny, I don’t care who ya are).
Tomorrow we’ll be back at it with all our classes and we’ll be getting around getting pictures at all the classes we haven’t been to yet so hang in there if you haven’t see enough pictures of your camper (I realize that limits it to just about ALL you moms out there!!).
Tomorrow our golf class will take their out of camp trip to hit a few rounds at the local golf course (I wonder if I can go on that trip? I may need to talk to someone about that) and the rest of us will be here in camp continuing to have fun in the sun and enjoy the last few days of playing in class. Now if you think we’ve done just about everything we can do in a session already, then you got another think comin!! Cause tomorrow night we’ll revel our camper videos in our very own Camp Skyline Video Music Awards!! That’s right all the campers have been working on making their very own music video and tomorrow night we’ll dress up just like the Grammy’s and had out awards to all the videos from each cabin. I tell ya, I’ve been working on editing and putting them all together today (maybe that’s one reason I’m so tired) and there are some great videos this year and even I can’t wait to see ‘em all on the big screen tomorrow. Be sure to wish your camper good luck with the videos tomorrow!
Weather on the mountain: It was another beautiful day up here on the mountain if you like nice warm weather. It was 62 this morning and got up to about 90 this afternoon. Plenty of sun for everyone to enjoy as they went all around camp. Looks like we have a shot at some rain tomorrow and I, for one, wouldn’t mind a little down time with a rain day. I’m sure there are some campers that could take advantage of the opportunity too!
Well folks, you guys enjoy all the pics that went up today, theres plenty top choose from and ya’ll should be plenty busy lookin’ at all of ‘em. You guys are almost there as we get into week two and you only have a few more days to wear your eyes down staring at the computer screen for your camper (I KNOW some of you guys have to be as tired as I am….aren’t ya??)
Yall have a great night, ‘cause I’m about to crawl into bed and leave it with ya for as long as you want to stay up. I’ve had about all the fun my body can take for one day and my eyes doin’ everything they can to shut me down for the night. I may have to give in and head ovezzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
