Start of 2nd session

During the last two days camp was really busy. There was so much going on. So many people were arriving, picking up their children or dropping off their children. For me, this weekend was very exciting. I finally got to know the parents of my campers and I had long chats with many parents about their expectations, about their children, and about what trips I was planning for second session. However, there were also some sad moments. For some campers Saturday was the last day of camp and they had to say goodbye to their friends and counselors. However, some campers were lucky and could spend some time with their parents before coming back to camp for another 3 weeks. Some other campers are from far away and, therefore, their parents could not come visit them during parents weekend. Me and Chris, we took these campers to town and played some miniature golf . Afterwards, we went to eat some ice cream, and returned to camp. It was a lot of fun and I am really glad that I could do that. The only bad thing about this trip to town was the weather. All Saturday morning and all Sunday we had very nice weather but Saturday afternoon and Saturday night we had a big thunderstorm. The lightnings were very impressive but the rain was a little bit unfortunate.
And finally today, some new campers have arrived. Some of them have never been to camp before. Others have been here for many summers. Having these new campers makes me very excited for next session. I'm really looking forward to the next 3 weeks and I am very confident that this session is going to be even better than the first session.
