I made it……..am I alive? Hmm, I think I can barely feel my feet, but I think I am alive! I basically worked straight for the 4 days, on my feet from 6 am- until after 10 and am so tired! A hot bath sounds good!
The kids liked the food, they loved Miriam and Regina. The kitchen was really nice to work in. I would love one of those big sprayer things and my mom needs a commercial dishwasher!
Anyhow, it was a ton of work and I don't know that I would do it again. Maybe once in a year it may be okay!
The children had alot of fun. They would ask questions in the meetings sometimes and the other kids (older than Paul) didn't know, but he did.
We had to have a talk about how you do not always say everything you know, even when you know it. I was embarrassed and proud of him, if that can be a combination! Everyone loved them and it was fun for them to get to do stuff with all those kids.
We had fairly large breakfasts so we had to get up at 6 am, which is not too bad if you get to bed at a decent hour! But who can sleep with yelling, running, pounding boys in the next room combined with a few girls….probably my sisters.
This morning, I was heading out in full speed to set out hot cocoa and thought I heard a noise and looked towards the stairs, running full speed ahead into Regina!! It knocked the breath out of both of us and we both just stared at each other. It is was like “Where did you come from?”
We served all the meals as well as fixing them, so breakfast the girls looked half asleep and wanted to do it with their eyes closed and then by dinner they came alive! They all these adoring fans hanging on them by the end of camp!
I will write more about it tomorrow, like what I cooked and about the chicken episode!
