Hellooooo parents !!!!
I’m sure by now you guys have seen plenty of all the games tonight. I mean, you can only watch so much of the competitions, the intense look in the competitors eyes, the confidence of the ones that know, the fear in the eyes of the ones who don’t have that confidence and aren’t sure…but enough about the boys asking the girls to dance tonight, has anyone watched the Olympics?? :-) If you think the only games being played were in London, then you need to take a closer look some of tonights dance pics. Theres two full folders full of pics, so be sure to spot your camper and see all the fun they had at the dance. I didn’t mean to sound like some of the boys were a little bit scared to dance with our lovely ladies of Skyline, but clearly some of those guys looked more out of place than Snoop Dog at a George Strait concert if ya know what I mean. Fortunately, after awhile, everyone gathered their nerves and the campers were all dancin’ the night away. The only sad moment of the night was when they announced that this would be the last song of the night and then all the boys headed back to get on Old yeller and head back to their camp. But not before emails, phone numbers, and facebook pages were exchanged and promises of “I’ll call you when camp ends” were told. Kind of gives a new meaning to the phrase “Let the games begin” doesn’t it? Oh well, good luck guys, maybe some of those phone numbers you got are the real ones???
Beside the big dance tonight, we had another beautiful day up here on the mountain and all the campers enjoyed perfect weather to end the first week and get ready for the second one. I can’t believe its been a whole week already, where does the time go? It seems like it was just a day ago when you guys were loggin in for the first time and startin’ to look at all the pics.
Now after a full week, were gonna let the little darlin’s sleep in a little later tomorrow (I know I’ll enjoy that!!) and then have our breakfast of homemade donuts and all the other goodies. After Breakfast, we’ll head off to Sunday School and then our church service in the gym. After lunch, we’ll get ready for our luau carnival where we’ll have giant inflateables and all sorts of fun games to play including a dunk tank as well as sno cones and other treats. We’ll be there to catch all the action for ya so don’t worry, you’ll be able to see everything that’s happening.
Now tomorrow night we’ll have our camper favorite, Counselor Hunt. This is where the counselors will hide all around camp and then your campers will head out in teams to try to find as many counselors as possible. Once they find a counselor, they take ‘em to the gym and find out how many points their worth for their club points. It’s a fun night that all the camper enjoy with all the aaction of the carnival and then the slowed down pace of counselor hunt. Tune in tomorrow night to see how many counselors your camper found!!
Well, since all the today’s Olympics are already finished, theres no rush to finish the news letter other than to get some sleep and at this point in the summer, that’s a pretty good incentive! So…. I hope you guys enjoyed the pics, be sure to check back during the day tomorrow and sit back, relax and be sure to split your time between the TV and the computer and watch all the action that’s going on up here and across the pond.
Weather on the mountain: As I said before, its was a perfect day and there’s plenty more where this one came from. Looks like we’ll have plenty of sun N fun throughout the rest of the week.
So from the greatest competition these campers could have ever faced (hey, even I remember how nervous it is to ask someone to dance), you guys have a good night and I’ll see ya tomorrow.
This probably should have been said BEFORE the dance, but “May the odds be forever in your favor”
Ya’ll have a great night and sleep a little later tomorrow, we sure are!!!
