Campamento Day 1 

11 Jul

Today we started official camp,  with our Women of Faith. Juliana read “la lectura” (the story) about the birth of Moses featuring his mom Jochebed making a basket. For the lesson,  we emphasized that baskets ate made for a purpose and the girls were wonderfully  made for a purpose on earth. The play that night was fabulous. They even had stage makeup.

Here is the cast after the play.

Stations were math, English,  and reflection for the younger girls. The oldest girls reviewed negotiation from last year. Well start the new material tomorrow.

Here is a girl with the basket she made today.


And rinsed out the shirts…

Busy,  fun day!

Let me know if you have any questions!

Thank you for all your support!!

    This poem arrived in my e-mail today – and I am passing it on to you:
    I Like it, Maybe we can pray it in week one or week two.

    Three Gratitudes
    By Carrie Newcomer

    Every night before I go to sleep
    I say out loud
    Three things that I’m grateful for,
    All the significant, insignificant
    Extraordinary, ordinary stuff of my life.
    It’s a small practice and humble,
    And yet, I find I sleep better
    Holding what lightens and softens my life
    Ever so briefly at the end of the day.
    Sunlight, and blueberries,
    Good dogs and wool socks,
    A fine rain,
    A good friend,
    Fresh basil and wild phlox,
    My father’s good health,
    My daughter’s new job,
    The song that always makes me cry,
    Always at the same part,
    No matter how many times I hear it.
    Decent coffee at the airport,
    And your quiet breathing,
    The stories you told me,
    The frost patterns on the windows,
    English horns and banjos,
    Wood Thrush and June bugs,
    The smooth glassy calm of the morning pond,
    An old coat,
    A new poem,
    My library card,
    And that my car keeps running
    Despite all the miles.
    And after three things,
    More often than not,
    I get on a roll and I just keep on going,
    I keep naming and listing,
    Until I lie grinning,
    Blankets pulled up to my chin,
    Awash with wonder
    At the sweetness of it all.

    I like this prayer…Maybe we can use it Week One or Week Two
