What a wet day it has turned out to be at Skyline! Luckily, the rain held off for a majority of the day during activities. We were also lucky to have our nighttime activity take place in the gym tonight when the rain really did come. It was much needed here so we are all letting out a big sigh of relief right now.
Skadonnelly here again tonight to inform you all that way too much fun was had today!!! Today was Picture Dayyyyyyy!!! Camp arose a couple minutes earlier today to don our club and staff uniforms for our traditional cabin and club pictures after breakfast. Don’t worry, all uniforms were in perfect, stain-free condition because we got smart somewhere along the road and started having the girls turn their shirts backwards while they eat. Some of them look at us weird when we suggest the idea but they sure are thankful when they drip a little food on themselves by accident and realize its an easy fix!
Pictures went off without a hitch. The rain held up and we had many a camper take their turn leaning and hugging (or even spider-monkey clinging) to our favorite picture tree. Larry will have all the individual photos on a swanky DVD for you to have when you pick up your daughter on closing day along with allll the pictures uploaded to the website from the session.
Activities encountered a little rain shower, which had us inside for a class period, but then we were back out in the overcast, sunshine! Lunch came and went, and so did rest hour (which for me, NEVER seems long enough) and all of a sudden it was dinner! We enjoyed a delicious meal and then it was the moment the girls had all been waiting for….it was time for TALENT NIGHT!!!!
There were 30 acts of incredible talent this session and I mean to tell you, we were all VERY entertained! We had talents that streamed all across the board; dancing, singing, hoola-hooping, gymnastic displays, piano performances and more! I have uploaded a bunch of photos from tonight’s show so make sure to check them all out! I was honestly impressed with all the talent Skyline tends to gather. It’s so great to see girls of all ages get up there and do their thing in front of everyone despite all the nerves. I LOVE Talent Night. Our judges had a tough deliberation when it came time to select our 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and Overall winners for both groups 1, 2, & 3 AND 4, 5, & 6. The results came to be….
Groups 1, 2, and 3:
1st Place – Elizabeth Coleman and Sara Evelyn McClintock
2nd Place – Hally Lee
3rd Place – Caroline Wright
Overall – Taylor Maddox
Groups 4, 5, and 6:
1st Place – Morgan James Artigas
2nd Place – Andie Whitfield
3rd: Place – Katie Foy and Caroline Cross
Overall – Helen Camp
A BIIIGGG congratulations goes to these girls and all the girls that participated tonight. Again, it was an outstanding show!
Of course, just our luck, when the show ends and we want to dismiss to campfire, the bottom of the sky just falls out. The rain came and campfire was now going to be held in the gym. The girls tonight learned about how the game Pictionary can remind us that even in the here and now, God always has a bigger picture for us than we can imagine. That he has a plan for each and every one of us and we should always trust in Him.
Now we all get to enjoy drifting off to sleep to the sound of rain (which is my FAVORITE) so we can be well rested for another day of non-stop fun! Tomorrow the girls are looking forward to playing “Underground Railroad” which is another camp favorite that is played with your cabin! The girls have to hone in on their inner quiet in order to keep from laughing and moving as the “bounty hunters” try and discover the girls hiding as boulders! It’s a great game and I am sure Larry will have plenty of good stories about that tomorrow.
Until then, goodnight!
