I get paid to have fun!

I would love to write a little something each day this summer so I can remember all the awesome, fun, memorable, and God things that happen. Today was day 2 of training and I got paid to have fun! We spent the morning doing a challenge course. I did this really fun swing thing. You get in a harness and run down a hill while eight other people run the opposite direction pulling the rope attached to your harness that runs through a pulley 30ft in the air. This catapults you up and then you swing. It was so much fun. After that we decorated classrooms...I drew and cut out dozens of crystals for the 4-5 year old room's theme of journey to the center of the earth. And today we finally found out the age group we will be working with. I got K2 (4-5th grade) which is exactly what I wanted and I was really excited. My team is not complete yet because some people are still arriving but so far the guy and girl seem cool. In our separate groups we then had a sand sculpture contest. Our awesome VW bug(very detailed) on a road did not win grand prize although we kept in line with our Route 66 theme.

After dinner, a handful of us walked to Haystack Rock and back and then sat and talked on the beach until the sunset. I finished the night playing 3-on-3 basketball with 5 of the guys on staff. I made one basket all night :( Those jr. high skills are a little rusty apparently.

All in all it was a wonderful day! I think I'm really going to like this place. Not that I had a doubt before, but it's very confirmed now. I can't wait for the guests and kids to arrive, but I don't want to rush things because I feel like this summer will already fly by too fast.

Off to bed now and I get to sleep in a bit since we have tomorrow off and church isn't until late morning.
