First day of school

Alex calls me pookie! :)

            Ahh another day in lovely Chestertown. Another crazy weekend full of crazy children. Today was just one big mess of running around from place to place. It started off with breakfast, then I had to shower and take Theresa to meet her parents and two other girls to the health office and I picked up Matt W.’s kids. So I went to the office and then I took three kids and Sarah, Aaron and I had the Jewish service (it was interesting). Afterwards I ran back to the dorm and Kim left, so I had all the girls. We got ready, went to lunch and then went to Hogsmeade. Matt and I spent three hours out in the hot sun running Quidditch, which was fun, but tiring. My girls didn’t win, but they did try and have fun, so that’s good. After that we came back, showered and hung out for a bit and then went to dinner. At 6pm we took all the Talent Show kids and set that up (it was a bit crazy, but it all worked)


            We started the Talent show around 6:40ish and it went surprisingly well! Some of the kids were good (the violin kid was AMAZING). We had tons of fun duct taping Josh and doing the random little openers before each act. All in all, a wonderful evening. Afterwards we returned to the dorm and I worked on the staff yearbook for awhile. I worked on it up until 11ish when Kim returned and I just ran over to the office with Andrew to print out some more pictures. And now here I sit as usual, doing a million things and getting ready for bed. Tomorrow is water day, which is the most exhausting day for RAs, but the kids like it and it wears them out too! Woohoo!


            So, dream well all! J

First day of school

cupcakes are amazing...

            I never thought I’d say this, but thank goodness the weekend is over! It’s hard taking care of these kids 24/7! And now they’re all asleep in bed and tomorrow after breakfast my day off beings so I’m freeeeee! Woooooo!


            Anyway, today wasn’t that bad – it started off with getting the church girls up, then showering and going to breakfast. Afterwards we returned to the dorm, had a quick hall meeting and then I took Sam and Michelle to the office because their parents were here to visit them. I ran a few errands and then came back to the dorm until lunch. And after lunch was WATER DAY! Now, I’ve come to the conclusion that Water Day is just an excuse to wear out everyone… not just the kids, but the RAs too! It was crazy! Dad came and helped out again and we ran Sponge Dodgeball, which was fun. However, unlike last time, this time instead of using tickets and such, if you won, you got a water balloon! That meant that there were 200 kids running around with water balloons… I’m sure you can just imagine the madness. But, the kids had fun and I was just dripping a little when we walked back.


            We returned to school and everyone showered, then we went to dinner and I showed off the yearbook for a bit. We started the movie at 6:15 tonight (They watched the first Harry Potter movie in honor of his birthday today). The best part – the movie is 2 hours and 20 minutes long! Woohoo! So, in that time we had a quick meeting (we’re not having a meeting tomorrow, we’re all meeting with Beth and Josh individually) and then we worked on yearbook stuff. Everyone filled in quotes for each person and we went outside and took CTY pictures (We spelled out CTY using people! Then we spelled out GMA too!)  for the cover. We also had a cupcake party because Jess asked the cafeteria people if we could have some and they gave us a whole plate of them with icing and everything (we love the cafeteria people!) It was a wonderful evening.


            After the movie we came back and everyone got ready to bed. After lights out I ran over to the office to print some pictures, dropped off the yearbook at the staff apartments, and now here I sit once again. Kim is out for the night and I have newspapers to read, a yearbook to work on and e-mails to answer. So to all those readers out there in cyberland, I hope you had a wonderful weekend.
