Howdy, howdy! Skadonnelly here again! We have had a BEAUTIFUL day at camp today, no rain at all! Looks like we won’t get any rain really until the weekend, which we might need by then, but for now we enjoyed the glorious sunshine. It was warm but definitely not the heat I expect from the end of July so we were sure happy about that!
Today was PICTURE DAY! We picked ourselves up out of bed this morning (some probably had to be pushed by a friend) 15 minutes earlier than usual so we had enough time to have our traditional cabin, club, and individual photos done! Each camper donned her club uniform and took turns taking pictures out on the front steps of the gym. After that, we quickly changed so we didn’t dirty our uniforms and headed to first period! The morning felt like it flew by because all of a sudden it was lunch and then I found myself out cold at rest hour!
Rest hour, some of our campers went to the gym for a very special practice…the TALENT SHOW practice!!! Any camper can choose to participate in our Skyline Talent Show we have each session. We usually have quite a variety of talents at our shows and I am always floored by the wonderful and crazy things these young girls can do! We ended up having about 45 acts total this evening such as, dancing, singing, hula hooping, ukulele and flute playing, gymnastics, monologues, and much more! Our head counselors served as our judges and as the show came to a close, I know they had an EXTREMELY hard time making a decision on who our winners were. Groups 1, 2, 3, and 4 competed against each other and groups 5 and 6 competed separately. After some hard deliberation, our winners were…
Groups 1, 2, 3 & 4:
1st: Gracie Stovall
2nd: Lilly Waldrop and Breck Hill
3rd: Meg Beuter
Overall: Lindsay Jane Drummond
Groups 5 & 6:
1st: Audrey Peterson
2nd: Kate McDonald
3rd: Emma Kate Merrin
Overall: Annabelle Woodard
All of the girls who participated, received a standing ovation from the other campers and I know the girls had a blast. You guys have some talented little girls!
The girls headed to a clear sky, star filled, campfire where they learned about how the theme game tonight, Pictionary, is a great example of how God always has a bigger picture for us. We should always live for the moment but we also need to understand that God has a big picture for us and that we should pray and listen for Him to guide us through life.
The girls are looking forward to another awesome, good-weather day at camp and also another great, camp favorite night time activity called, Underground Railroad. Larry will get into more detail about the game tomorrow but the girls travel around with their cabin and try to sneak around camp to different check points to get to “freedom” without getting caught by a “bounty hunter”. Counselors will walk around looking for campers and as the group freezes to pretend to be a “boulder” the counselor will try to make them laugh which sends them to “jail”. It’s a funny, funny, game and the girls always look forward to trying their hardest not to more and laugh!
Until then, check out the pictures from tonight and look forward to more tomorrow!
