Family night #2
Tonight is our second family night of the camp season. It will again involve the Camp Hadar BBQ pit. This time Hubby is not coming to the family night. I don't blame him after the last time he came and spent the whole night selling raffle tickets and giving out prizes. This time he'll stay home and have a nice supper ready for me. Last time I was offered inedible, black, hockey puck hamburgers and couldn't eat them so he had to take me to the 99 for supper that night. Not a bad deal, actually! I really thought Family Night would be cancelled. The weather this week in New England has been horrendous. We've had rain and some very severe thunder showers. They even had a tornado siting last night! I watched out the window last night as there was just continuous lightening for a half hour or so. The weather today is supposed to be bad. Even though about ten minutes ago the sun was shining, right now it's raining. And we're supposed to have some pretty severe downpours and thunder and lightening all day. I'm glad I'm not the one who decided whether or not to have the Family Night. Our theme for tonight is "Scavenger Hunt". Each Specialist (Arts and Crafts, Athletics, Music, Judaic Culture, Waterfront and Boating) has to have some kind of small activity for the families to do. Each family has to visit each Specialist and complete the activity, which will count toward their team for Color War. (Color War will be the topic for another blog!) It's a bit difficult, as the activity for Arts and Crafts has to be a "make-it, take-it". Last year I made the mistake of offering fuse beads, which the kids love. I didn't take into consideration that I'd be ironing fuse beads for two and a half hours in the 90 degree heat! This year I've decided to teach them how to make an Origami Crane. First I have to figure out how to do it myself and practice it enough so it looks like I know what I'm doing! All right....now it's absolutely pouring out! It's going to be a great day!
