Long Time….No Words

I am sorry that I have not been able to write in two weeks.  I have been extremely busy here in the last few weeks.  An explanation is in order.

As some of you may know I work for a YMCA and I was chosen to be the Camp Director.  The last few weeks have been filled with planning, hiring and training.  Monday was our first day on camp.

Things are hit and miss.  We got rain and cold weather on day one, which in my book, doesn’t really count.  Last year their camp consisted of swimming, free time and more swimming and free time.  This year we are changing this up.  Most parents have accepted out new way of thinking.  The kids weren’t too happy with it at first, but now that they have been exposed to new ideas and games, they are all gung-ho. Most Parents weren’t thrilled about he new paper work, but with merging companies comes new policies and procedures.  After we explained the new papers they were a little more understanding about the change.

Friday was great.  Parents were calling and telling us just how happy and impressed they were with the first week of camp.  Their kids would come home and talk about their days and the things they did and then pass out at bed time.  When I heard about that I was elated.  My work has paid off.  Parent’s are finally happy with the camp program.

My goal this year was to have 50 children signed up.  My boss didn’t expect more than 20.  After collecting all of the new paperwork from campers that didn’t register in advance, we have 70 campers registered, and no less than 50 each week.  I am flabbergasted.  Seriously stunned.  Its pretty much split down the middle, 50% returning campers and 50% new campers.  I couldn’t be happier.

Thursday night I ended up with whatever is going around.  Everyone I am surrounded with has it.  So, yes I am sick once again.

My goal is to keep up with my uploading schedule as it stands now, but I cannot guarantee content everyday, as I am a very busy woman this summer.  I have so much that I want to share with you and I apologize for not getting anything posted for the last two weeks.
