Frustrated

I was frustrated today. It rained almost the whole day at camp which meant the children had to stay indoors almost the whole day and we weren't able to do our usual activities. It was also super crazy with all the campers indoors.

During afternoon pool we were told by a lifeguard to use the deep end of the indoor heated pool, because another group from camp was using the shallow end. Half of the children in my group couldn't go in because they don't know how to swim in that end. With about 10 minutes left of the swim time the lifeguard told us that we needed to go outside to swim, where it was windy, cold, and rainy. So we got the children out of the water and took all their stuff outside to swim. I just didn't understand why we couldn't stay in the heated pool or go in the shallow end. It was so cold outside for the little ones. Most of them hardly have any body fat to keep them warm as it is. Of course, I tried to stay excited about it for the children. It was just really hard with the mixed messages. And it was the same lifeguard that told us both times. Oh, well, at least we only had six children today. Also, smart thinking on my part but, I wore khaki light pants today and got a lot of mud on them. Here's to hoping it doesn't rain tomorrow...

Ugh,I'm so sorry. That has got to be so frustrating. BTW, I really like your photographs. You do a great job.

P.S. Anyway you're available for babysitting this Thursday night? I'm sure that after spending all day with kids you really want to spend the evenings with my crazy two! Email or call and let me know!

That sounds totally frustrating!!

I love your summertime post! You have been up to such fun!

I had a baby in the spring time so I got to spend most of the summer with her. But, now I work in the summertime, in an office, which isn't that bad. But, I miss summertime with baby Marlayna.
I miss you!

Ya! Where's your update!?! I thought you would have posted the memory tag. But, I'll leave a memory anyway! Time to embarass you!

I remember that you talked in your sleep (we were missionary companions and shared a room, not a bed). One night you were really mad and you kept saying, "I already have a program!!!" I thought it was hilarious! I love you so much and miss you even more!
