Another day filled with love

Today I started off in the garden – Bryan and Brickell and I watered the garden and turned compost. It was a typical day in the garden, and I can tell my garden is continuing to thrive. I am sad that selfish and vicious gophers ate my Kale but I know my broccoli and parsnips and

Santa Cruz Summertime!

Last week was Children’s Camp, and I was able to see some of my best friends, who were counselors, and help teach the dance class. I have been helping to teach the dance class for the past four years now, and it is so much fun to choreograph a dance and watch the kids master it.

Junior High Madness

Last week I had the absolute pleasure of being a counselor at Camp Cromberg for Junior High Camp. I never went to Cromberg as a camper, and I had never counseled Junior High Camp before, so I went into camp not knowing at all what to expect. I was actually quite worried to be counseli

A whole lot of happy

This past week we had a kids’ camp here and it was a fun week getting to interact with them but also having some free time to ourselves. The majority of the week I lifeguarded and was in the dish room but I gained much needed experience in both of those areas. Whether it was sav
