So again, I must apologise for not updating recently. This last week's been pretty hectic. The children arrived on Sunday, and eat up a phenomenal amount of time. The children in my bunk (aged 11-12) are all pretty cool. Sometimes a little troublesome, one who exhibits all the symptoms of ADD (but is one of my favourites), but they're the reason I've been finding this job particularly rewarding.
In terms of teaching, I've been put to teaching juggling (that's all manipulation stuff), junior single trapeze, which is great, and human pyramid, which is utter chaos but brilliant fun. I've got high hopes for what my staff kids are going to be doing in the performance, because they're all fast learners and come up in their free time to practice, which means they'll be great. I'm hoping to get a few up to using fire.
Anyway, yesterday was my first day off, so we headed into Scranton (the local 'city'), and just kicked around for a while. Had a burger, which was amazing, saw a movie which was tolerable, and then I broke my toe, which was a little pants, to be entirely honest. It's a fairly clean break, and should heal nicely, but I've been reduced to hobbling around camp doing not too much. Still, it could be worse. Anyway, I have places to go, and people to see, so I have to sign out.
More updates soon!
