Life continues past the months of June, July, and August and so must the counselors of Day Camp.

THANK YOU THANK YOU!








Gator, Rudy, and Muppet...
Thank you so much for your immense hospitality over New Years. Despite the intense messes, constant loud volume, and occasional pee splatters on the bathroom floor, you all remained sane and happy to host...so thank you again and again. : ) And thanks to all who organized meals and activities too! It was so great to be there! I can't wait to re-unite again with all you day-campers this coming summer! (Lord willing, of course!)

Happy 2008!

anyone care JAV? No

It was a great. Awesome New Years everyone.
Highlights that I can think of now:

1) I had a blast last night with Snaps, Montana, Indy, Race, and Danny. Thanks for the bed at four in the morning Rudy. It was entertaining watching you go to work as I was going to sleep. I'm going to be the best substitute teacher ever (assuming I can take the test on the date)! He He.
2) Fish
3) Lark playing football really intensely... when the plays weren't going on
4) The estimated countdown (we were about 10 seconds early)
5) Halo... Kinda. Ok... who am I kidding... it was great.
6) The Pinata and the negotating around it
7) Catching up with people
8) Dance Party or Banjo, Nova, Indy, Montana, Race party.
9) Supply-Chain management cooking with Spiff, Smiles and Fiesta
10) Dash's super secret dance that only a select few got to witness

Good luck in the New Year everyone!

Well I had fun playing you at Halo — I mean, playing Halo with you — Daff.

PS. I took all your clothes to the Goodwill depot on Mission St. today. You can get 'em back but you'll have to play a little game I like to call Which Bum Has My Shirt?

I just want you all to know reading through all the new memories makes me smile. When Shannon (Corker) and I took a pause while people where saying goodbye during finger rocket wars, we too had to pause and remember when new years first started and how we used to get so excited about seeing everyone...and so sad when we left.

Now its your turn. Such amazing and wonderful memories. I am glad I have had a part!

Your always welcome... just drop a line.

Ps another memory was Fish and the largest pot of Oatmeal I have EVER seen. whoo ate it??

Sorry about the raccoons...I warned the boys they are SCARY!!!

hello wonderful people. thank you for taking the time to come to our little red house in the woods and celebrate the new year with us. it was lovely having you all. it is a good thing you all left when you did, considering the storm of the century that is leaving northern cali powerless. our house is still shining brightly (lets hope it stays that way).

p.s. i am glad that my "crows the size of eagles" has stuck with you dana and race. there was no exaggeration at all. scary, but true.
