A pic with shrek!
Children are ready to explore the camp grounds at Kettleby Valley today… So far, no rain and lots of smiles!!!
We have finally arrived and are full of excitement!
As I sit here, enjoying my coffee and putting together some photos for this, I wonder what breakfast will be like. Not the food, but the kids, will they make it down or will I be banging on doors in 30 min trying to get them up. We arrived at the hotel at 9:30 or so last night and the kids went crazy…it was obvious that they needed some time to be social, so we agreed…well 15 min into their time and we were shutting it down. They weren’t doing anything bad, just being kids (I’ll never understand why the hotel puts paying families in amongst our groups). No big deal, we feel bad for them and we’ve made some changes to allow a better transition to the second hotel tomorrow night.
Now about last night:
It was incredible…we did a ghost tour of Philly in small groups and the guides had the kids and adults alike enthralled with their story telling. They wove fantastic stories of lost loves, brides, and souls longing to redeem themselves.
Every journey has a beginning.
Every adventure has a first step.
Over 800 km.
Together, we trek.
Bags have been packed. iPods have been charged. The bus has been loaded. Goodbyes have been spoken. The children have awoken.
We have just left the school and we’re headed east to la belle provence! The children are in high spirits. There’s electricity in the air. Over the next 4 days students and teachers alike will see Canadien culture, nature, and history.
It will be an experience to remember.
Watch out Quebec…TPS is a comin’!
