I'm at camp now

Hi all. . . . Here we are at Camp Bloomfield . . . just kidding (for anyone who might possibly know the song).

I’ve been here for a week now. We are on break between staff training and family camp #1. Staff training has been crazy. We have staff this year that aren’t’ content just letting things stay the same- they are committed to improving camp so this last week has been extremely busy and tiring cleaning out areas that haven’t been cleaned in years and years. But we’ve had a lot of fun. The staff seems to get along really well for the most part; we seem a little less clique-y than last year.

Last night we went Ventura to do some camp shopping. The life guards needed matching suits, I needed arts and crafts supplies for the first session (we’ll order the rest online), and we all needed some food that wasn’t made at camp, so we took a trip to CPK and Cold Stone (pretty much my two favorite places to eat).

We started the summer off with six dogs. Last year we only had two in the beginning and it took like eight weeks before we got to six. We have FBL Miata, MBL Spanky, MBL Sherwood, MYL Frisco, MBL Daughtry (I don't know how to spell his name), and MGLD Godfrey. They are all very good dogs. They'll be good for the campers.

It has been amazingly hot this year (as those of you who keep up with the news might know) and that has made the bug problem worse. Both major inconveniences, but we are still enjoying ourselves. This really is a fun group of people. We’re making plans for our summer trips: Sea World, Wicked, Disneyland, Fun Day, and Magic Mountain. Fun stuff.

I know this isn’t very long, but to give you all the details might start to get annoying and I’ve been on the comp for awhile (I had 136 new emails to read and our internet is super, super slow).

I’ll update later.
