John's Ice Cream. Liberty, Maine. July 3, 2018

Aaron is back from Boston - he got back on Sunday and we took the boys to John's. Everyone loves this ice cream place, everyone from camp goes there. 

Today was so so so hot and humid. Too hot to think. Too hot to move. I took my third period shibori class to the sprinkler in the backyard to cool down. We were all desperate for a cool down. Tomorrow is going to be hotter! I'm planning on heading to the lake to cool down. I feel like all classes should be canceled and everyone needs to spend the day cooling off in the lake. 

Aaron and I are now upstairs in the peach room, sweating. Yay for summer, I love it!

These Things Happen At Camp. June 29, 2018

Mayim got two bug bites on his left ankle, one in front and one in back, his entire foot swelled up. He couldn't walk, it was red and angry. He had to go to the doctor, he was not a happy camper. The doctor said he was getting better and yesterday he felt much better, today he was almost back to normal. The bites had blisters, the blisters popped and things are healing. He did get to hitch a ride with a PD on the golf cart, so that was cool. 

Also, shibori is totally happening at Timbuktu. My classes are mellow, they are even sewing their designs! I am very impressed! Teaching shibori is my favorite part of camp.

Camp Interior. Norm the Dorm. June 24, 2018

For those of you who have not been to sleep away camp, and for those of us who did, but did so as kids, here is what my room looks like at camp. The bed is different than what the kids get, they sleep in bunk beds. But the cubbies are the same. Isn't mine tidy? I am sitting on my bed right now, typing this. It is 9:17 pm and I am ready for bed. It's been really cold at night, so I bought myself a hot water bottle today. I am so excited! How did I not think of this sooner? 

Today I took 2 portraits of every camper. One stays here and one gets sent home to parents. Before this, I did not realize that not all children know how to smile. Some children do not know how. 

Tomorrow is the first day of regular camp schedule I am really happy to have a schedule again. Torpor time will be happening. Today I did not get any down time and I almost cried in the parking lot of Walgreens. Sweet dreams, friends. Love, Eden
