What Are Your Plans for the Summer?
If you've been wondering where I've been lately, our school's summer camp started immediately. On Friday May 23rd I was saying goodbye to our Pre-K 3 students. And on Saturday and Sunday I was in training for summer camp. I was honored to be chosen as the Site Leader but it comes with more responsibilities. And I take them seriously. After all, I want this summer camp to be FUN and SAFE for the kids and staff.
Our first week began the day after Memorial Day. We started with a group of preschool children and the theme was Star Wars. What fun to be Jedi's. We even had a dunk tank and an official mascot.
Years ago, I was a graduate assistant for the Dale Carnegie speaking program. We had to demonstrate all kinds of speeches, including extemporaneous talks. I've also attended Tony Robbins and Zig Ziglar conferences. After all, I used to motivate heart patients to make healthier lifestyle choices. What I didn't realize at the time was that I'd be using those skills with little children!
I get to take charge of our daily morning Camp meetings which includes singing with a microphone! I'm not much of a singer but ...I have lots of enthusiasm. And the kids don't seem to mind.
While I might enjoy a vacation at the beach, instead you can find me singing songs like "Boom Chicka Boom" and "Great Big Moose".
So what are your plans for the summer?
Blessings and love,
