last summer, me by the new fire pit the Maintenance Men built
Camp Shetek Summer Staff, 2011 (the camp family. we live there all summer.)
For a more in-depth camp flashback, you can read this one. It's one of my favorite chapters of my own history. And for those who will ask: Yes! I am eventually, someday, definitely going to finish writing our love story! I promise!
This will be my 7th and Grant's 26th summer at Camp Shetek, but it's still just as exciting as the first! Hey, remember last summer when we moved out to camp after I had just had a baby 9 days ago? Wowwwww. That one was crazy! (Note: newborn babies and camp schedules are basically like oil and water.) Someday I will tell Hadley how she was a camper from the very, very beginning! And if you're wondering what camp will look like for us this year, here's the story:
Grant's role: Maintenance Man (lawn mowing, weed whacking, water front tasks, etc), Videographer (in charge of filming/producing the weekly camp video), Mail Call officiant, Skit Night MC
Summer's role: part-time kitchen girl (serving meals to campers), part-time nanny to Hadley's cousin, some cleaning tasks, camp laundry, evening food prep for tomorrow's breakfast
Hadley's role: being cute, learning words, growing teeth, looking for Champ (the camp dog), figuring out if the lake is scary or fun
