i say "organized" lightly.
it has been a great few days, though. i can’t believe tomorrow is the last full day! this week has flown by, and i’ve learned a lot and am excited for everything to come.
tonight’s gonna be a short entry; i’m extremely tired and i have a few things to do before i head back to the cabin.
however, for your entertainment, here are a list of things that have defined my week thus far:
1.) the majority of ten-year-old boys will not listen the first time you tell them something.
2.) the majority of ten-year-old boys will act as if you just told them their dogs died if you say that they have to shower, even if they don’t want to.
3.) rest hour will inevitably deteriorate into a time for writing plays about robin hood and ke$ha. not sure how that one worked out.
4.) raccoons are not afraid of you.
5.) when you tell a ten-year-old boy to hang his towel up so it can dry, he thinks you mean drop it on the floor.
6.) some kids think that being lactose-intolerant means that they cannot eat cows.
7.) "you can’t ride in my little red wagon" is a fun cheer the first time. the eighth time, not so much.
8.) kids just want someone to listen to them.
9.) some adults don’t listen to kids enough.
10.) telling kids to hurry means that they will jog for ten seconds before returning to an even slower pace.
11.) some parents must think we don’t feed their kids at camp, because they send enough food with them for about three weeks.
12.) and then they send them care packages.
13.) brownies in care packages are good, though.
14.) kids are funny. kids are hilarious.
15.) kids are also exhausting.
16.) seeing that smile makes everything totally worth it.
with that, i’m going to bed.
well. in an hour or so.
