Hey everyone! So, school is finally over and done with - phew! These last couple of weeks have been really stressful, but I gotta thank you all for your words of advice. Without them, I think I would have gone completely crazy!
My mom is super happy because I came home with practically straight A's. I ended up getting a B- in art, but I figure that's such a subjective thing... everyone's idea of what's cool and what's not changes on a daily basis so if I can manage to get a B-, that's good enough for me. And it was good enough for my mom too - she's driving me to camp this weekend!
I have to get there a week or so earlier than all the campers to I can meet the rest of the staff and learn all the things I need to learn about my job. I think I'll be kind of moving around from activity to activity so I'll get to try out lots of fun stuff. The kids I'm going to be working with are seven and eight years old, so fingers crossed I can handle it! I figure a lifetime of having Amy around and all my babysitting experience should have prepared me.
I still have a lot of running around to do before I ship out this weekend. I need to buy a new bathing suit, put together a first aid kit, stock up on books and magazines and make sure I have plenty of writing paper on hand. My mom's made me promise I write home at least once a week! Anyways, I should tackle some of these errands. I will be sure to update you guys as soon as I arrive. Hope your summer has started out well!
Ideas about your finals - make studying fun, try to make it into a game or you could have your siblings or parents test you for something you want. (Ex. If you get an answer right, you get a dime - you could be an A+ student and rich.) Don't forget to bring your cell phone, paper, pen/pencil, stamps, envelopes and pics of you friends and family to camp.
Since you are going to summer camp, you are definitely going to need lots and lots of sunscreen, ponytail holders and many different kinds of shoes for different activities. Have fun at summer camp!
I read your blog and I just wanna say I hope you have fun at camp. So peace out to you too!
