people so often ask me what a typical day at camp looks like and i never have a good answer for them. we've been at camp for a week now, opening up camp and hosting our first retreat of the year, for the montessori school in juneau. looking back on this week, i'm reminded again of how there's no good answer to that question.
a typical day at camp looks like....
folding shirts, folding shirts, folding shirts
running the dishwasher many, many times
tables up, sweeping, mopping, tables back down.... and repeat a few hours later
a few hours in the camp store.... explaining to a little boy that we don't accept iTunes gift cards, seeing tears in his eyes as he looks up, and giving him ice cream for free.
sharing ice cream and giggles with a two year old
holding hands in a circle on sundays and singing the doxology before dinner
laser tag sign-up
coffee, lots of coffee
watching whales and sea lions play
taco bar and monster cookies
progressive cleaning parties
early morning times with Jesus in the dining hall.... with lots of coffee
friends coming 'home' for the weekend and then singing 'go, tell it on the mountain' when they leave
so that's what a typical day looks like at camp.... at least for this season.
