Today is the Holiday Hoopla dance and the camp was abuzz with excitement.
As I have said before, this dance is the farthest thing from a date event. It is more like a costumed group exercise/silliness class.
Susie Ma’am came as a piece of candy corn for Halloween. Dodger Ma’am (our camp basset hound) was an elf.
Lola Ma’am (our camp baby) appreciates the patriotic Harlow Ma’am.
Here, a counselor celebrating Mother’s Day is dancing with his entire cabin.
It has been a grand day. We learned that the Trojan-Spartan games resulting in the first ever tie. After three separate competitions with almost 250 games, the result was an unexpected 131-131. Since we have no precedent for such an outcome, we are debating the best resolution. Some are suggestion a “Moo Off” where the leaders of the two teams attempt to moo longer than each other. I believe this is how the Spanish American War was resolved, though I am not completely clear.
As I conclude on this historic note, I find myself amazed that we are down to our last few nights. I know that it has seemed like a lifetime for you at home, but time has been racing here. We just need to appreciate every remaining hour.
