Today is Ilyse's birthday - Happy Birthday Lulu!! Last year at exactly this time, we were all together celebrating Ilyse's 40th birthday in Sonoma. I loved being there, we all had a special time - all of us! This year we are in Maine and I called Ilyse from the ice cream stand about 15 minutes away from camp. Even though Ilyse is not physically in Maine, I feel really connected to her because she also spent many summers at a sleep away camp in Maine. So we agree.
Today was a FULL day, as all days at HVC are. I am in bed, in my sleeping bag, really really ready for bedtime. Today I taught 2 photography classes, I went in a canoe - with my camera (scary!) - Phillie rowed me around the lake so I could photograph swimmers, paddle boarders, windsurfers and sliders (there's a giant, old, metal slide). I also taught a fused glass class - as well as taking many photos around camp. Tomorrow I have a date with Robin and the alpacas, for a photo shoot.
My boys are already professional campers. Today was the first day Lavi did not eat lunch with me - he is so awesome. Mayim and I had lunch together and he talked my ear off, which I loved every moment. It's interesting being at camp together, but only seeing them here and there and then maybe for lunch. So different then our regular routine at home.
I am off to sleep now. Love, Eden
