Going strong after our first week of camp

It’s great to be back at Sunny Camp Chinqueka! We have been here for over a week, so I think we are pretty much settled. We are back in the infirmary, which is a nice place for us. Beth has her work area and then we have our own little two-bedroom living quarters off the back. It’s a bit cozy, but it works well for us.

We got a great surprise when we arrived to a clean cabin! Last year we had a lot of cleaning to do when we first got to camp. But this year our cabin was cleaned and the beds were even made prior to our arrival. We have about 50% of last year’s staff returning to camp this year, so things around camp have been ahead of schedule.

Unfortunately, our Katie “Nana” wasn’t able to come back to camp this year. The darn US Government denied her Visa and wouldn’t let her come back. So Sawyer has a new nanny and her name is April. She is from Scotland and I’m happy to say she and the kids have gotten off to a great start! I’m sure April and Sawyer will spend a lot of time at the playground and hunting for bugs.

I’m glad to say we have even managed to make it back to see Grammie and Grampie Stanton twice already! The first time was a quick visit during the day. We went to a park with cousins Travis and Drew, and went out for a nice dinner. Plus we all met baby Harrison for the first time! The second trip was an overnight trip at Uncle Damon and Aunt Jackie’s house. We had a bbq and a campfire while the kids swam in the pool and ran around.  Sophie and Sawyer have really enjoyed playing with Travis and Drew!

We have a few more calm days before the kids arrive at camp. Then the craziness begins! Even though this is just the calm before storm, it is still great to be back at camp!
