I'm in SUCH a good mood today! Its 79 degrees and sunny, I have awesome programs schedules for the kids, everyone is happy, there was enough food for the staff to eat their fill!
This morning I only had one program, which was at 11. We went to the bird observation post and the kids LOVED it. We easily spent the whole 30 minutes watching the birds with the four binoculars that we shared. It was a bit of a rough day for my step dad's bird book as kids were fighting over it, but it managed to survive with only a few mildly wrinkled pages. I felt great knowing that the kids really enjoyed my program and that just made me SUPER psyched for this afternoon's two programs.
This afternoon my groups will be having a "nature field game" day. We will be playing several "predator-prey" games and other variations of tag, some hide and seek games to learn about camouflage, a tracking game, and a version of kick the can (or milk carton, as it will be). Well, both groups won't necessarily play all of these games, but those are the sort of options we have.
I'm also on the planning committee for tonight's evening activity. Since the boys will be out on their camp out, tonight will be a girls night sleepover style party. We'll be making ice cream sundaes, painting nails, doing hair and make up, doing facials, playing MASH, and playing board games. Its gonna be AWWWWWESOOOOOME!!!!!
Today is such a good day and I foresee it getting better. I hope my foresight is correct! :D
