And today, that piece of awesome is my cabin photo from last week. Yes it was Pirates vs. Ninjas week and yes we were PIRATES! Arrrr….
I’m halfway through another week, just after the overnight on the beach with the kiddos. My camera might die soon so I thought I’d share some pictures just in case it does.
Cage Fighter grilling hot dogs in a hot dog costume. It needed to happen, right? Right.
This week’s girls doing a group exercise. Things blew up, there were tears and tantrums but in the end they finished.
Squid was being so patient with them.
Tortilla face strikes again! Thanks to taco Tuesday…
Crow got them to play a game when they finished climbing the climbing tower early.
And here’s a picture of the cabin, more or less. My area is around the corner and in the deep dark woods. It’s way too dark to take a picture so you’ll just have to imagine the glory that is a counselor’s room.
And here are the baby birds! They’re in a nest right outside the window at eye-level and oh so tiny. The boys have figured out that they exist (and that the tree isn’t poisonous like we said it was… oops) and now they’ve started to harass them. Nice.
This week is duos week at camp! In arts and crafts the girls traced me and then made the super alter-ego for Sweet Pea. How great is that!? I have some wicked yellow teeth, green chicken pox/freckles and some zany tights.
Now, I realize that some of this might sound mighty boring, but this is what I’m going to call camp cool. Ya dig? Good. You should. Now, other things that happened this week:
I dressed up as Captain Kirk (which means I put on a shiny gold shirt) and then got rugby tackled in my costume during a skit.
I caught my finger on fire… and didn’t notice.
A cricket bit me.
I wore a marker moustache all day.
I played “The Klingon fairy of Good Choices” during chapel (Kirk and Spock were a pair of campers I was trying to influence to make good choices… oh man… welcome to my summer).
Tune in next week for more goings-on.
The people over at Xylocopa have done some amazing woodwork with instruments, jewelry and everything in between. This Moustaches of the world Ukelele is my favorite. At first I thought they’d painted them on and that was sweet, but now that I know they’ve each been carefully inlayed into the original instrument my mind has been blown away.
