5th & 6th grade, July 5-11

This week has been an epecially busy one. For crafts Ms. Ellen, Lynne and I helped the campers use corn cobs as printing rollers to print on t-shirts.

Of course a lot of paint got on the kids, tables and all over the plastic serving gloves that they wore.

Two of our counselors, Brooke and Etan, celebrated birthdays.
We all joined in for birthday cake and ice cream.

These two guys have just returned for third or fourth helpings and had to be turned away.
Don't worry they made up for it at snack shop time!

Lynne is in the process of baking over 14 dozen dinner rolls.
Some were served for dinner, others were made into Baldwin Breakfast Biscuits with egg, ham and cheese.

The girls spent the night in tents. During the night Sassie began to bark. We heard dogs in the distance, growing closer. The girls insisted they were wolves right outside the tent.
Could be.

After a night in the woods, everybody is ready for piles of homemade pancakes and sausage patties.

It seems like all we do is cook, clean up, wash pots and pans and then start over.
This photo is turned sideways!
We are preparing potatoes for a crowd.
Most days we start in the kitchen around 7:30 a.m. and retire, dead tired, about 8 p.m.
Sometimes there is a short afternoon break for crafts.

After potato peeling, John a junior counselor, empties the peelings into out garden.
The orange mesh and Sassie have kept the moose out. Our tomatoes are growing,but there has been so much rain that the sun has not been out, (inspite of the sun not setting).
The tomotoes are slow to ripen.
The computer had a glitch so the rest of the entries for this week are on the previous blog.
Until next week. Stay Cool!
