today I am tired. With 109 campers and a near-shortage of counselors, I am tired. my brain is not functioning well enough to remember all the delightful moments, so instead, I'll remind myself that there were moments, amidst the hurricane of the day where time froze and I found myself in a sunbeam, surrounded by kids, all of us laughing.
and where it's true, for most of the day I ran around wildly, trying to make sure everyone was ok, in ratio, all kids alive. it's also true, for a short moment, the madness calmed and I was challenged to a tether-ball tournament by a group of K-2 campers, who gave me surprisingly good competition.
