Tale as old as time, song as old as rhyme, Beauty and the Beast

Good Saturday Afternoon!

The Bravo kids are gone.  The Aspire kids are gone.  The Grad Campers are gone.  For the first time, ever, we had to tell the bus to sit and wait for half an hour because we were EARLY and ready to go too soon, but if we let the bus leave that early, all of the kids would make it to their bus stops way sooner than their parents, and that’s bad news bears.

We had an excellent finish to the week with Bravo’s Beauty and the Beast performance in the afternoon.  Aspire got to go do some Archery yesterday morning, and then some low ropes team-building in the afternoon, following the performance.  There was a talent show in the evening following Spotlight (Frank’s teaching session), where apparently hosts Riley and Jacob had to stop the Bravo kids from performing long enough to get all of Aspire up to sing a song together.  Shocking, I know, that kids who signed up for a week long drama camp culminating in a musical production would want to participate endlessly in talent shows.

Unfortunately, while taking pictures of the performance, I was struggling big time with the poor lighting in the chapel.  I don’t have nearly as many pictures as I’d have liked, but I do have lots from throughout the performance.  All of the Bravo kids performed wonderfully, and Riley stole the show again!  I think Jared would make an excellent candidate for the next Batman movie with his gruff, angry voice in his role as the Beast.  I’ve heard rumours that yesterday afternoon and evening, Lynn was being referred to by some as “the Beast’s Mom.”  How flattering 🙂

Thanks to Sherri for giving me her pictures of the kids during their final makeup and rehearsal prep, as I was in the tuck shop making sure all of the kids had their completely necessary and not at all superfluous run of candy for the day :).

While I was across the road snapping pictures of the Aspire kids at low ropes (sorry, I have no pictures of the Archery, I was writing yesterday’s blog while they did it!), I came across two Grad Campers who were picking containers full of wild blackberries!  I picked a handful myself, and they were DELICIOUS!

And, since it wouldn’t be one of my blogs if I didn’t finish it with a sunset, here ya go!
