Our First Summer Camp of the 2012 Season.

Hello Troops,
What is this, a midnight post on a Tuesday night?  Strange as it may seem, yours truly is sitting at my computer at 11:45 P.M. at the Space Center.  Having just put the boys to bed, I find there is a measure or two of intelligence still bottled in my consciousness with an expiration date of 12:30 A.M.  If I don't process these last few thoughts now, they will be forever lost to the Langoliers as they devour what was our Tuesday.

This is the first camp of our 2012 Summer Camp Season!  There were a few grumbles from the staff.  Usually I give everyone a week off between the end of the school year and the start of the summer camp season.  I decided to ignore tradition and forge ahead with the first summer camp.  The decision could be regarded as both wise and foolish.  Wise because of the few extra summer dollars this additional week will bring.  Foolish because my staff may decide to strike back.  I'm leery about going to bed, fearful of the evil that could befall me in the dark of a Space Center night.

Our first EdVenture Camp (3 day camp) starts Thursday.  The ships have new stories.  Mrs. Remy and Mrs. Houston have an awesome class session mapped out and Mrs. Clegg is ready with measuring cups, knives, forks, spoons and crock pots waiting to unveil her new alien culinary creations.  Lucky are those who got their registrations in on time, for the waiting lists are long with the names of those unfortunate souls who didn't.

And now, its time for bed.


Mr. W.
