Camps, Camps and More Camps

It seems like it has been years since I have posted.  I got out of school on Friday, June 3rd.  My classmates got out the Tuesday after, but many left early like I did because they had vacations planned before the snow days were added.  Saturday the 4th I left for MDA camp at Bradford Woods, in southern Indiana.  Matthew (my brother) went too.  I had a wonderful time.  Matthew's 14th birthday was the 7th, and although he didn't get to see his parents on his birthday he had a great time and some of the campers and counselors sent him birthday cards and a few presents they bought with fake money that they won on casino night.  We got home on the 10th in the afternoon.  Mom actually left for Virginia to attend two weddings that morning, so we didn't get to see her until she returned on the 14th.  Starting on the 13th I was in knitting camp (during the day) at the Village Yarn Shop in Zionsville (where I go to school).  It was lots of fun and a made a really cute purse using Fare Isle knitting.  We also made a headband out of stretching yarn and a quilt square and died yarn w/ cool aid an's  made a ball of miss-matched  yarn by tying ends together as well as taking a feild trip to a local alpaca farm.  Mom left for DC again yesterday.  She'll be back Tuesday.  This week, as my parents and I decided yesterday, I am going to theater camp at the old milk building (where I got my piano) to preform Alice's Adventures in Wonderland.  It is fun, but the version we are doing is written for 40-80 people to preform, preferably on the upper end.  There are only 18 kids signed up for theater camp.  I am Baby's Breath (the flower) but play the role of Gladiolas, Roses, Impatiens, Shrinking Violet and Pansies, as well as Baby's Breath.  Kind of crazy, but we are short 62 actors and actresses.  I don't have a camp next week, yet.  I did only scedual this one yesterday.  But I hope to get back into the habit of blogging as soon as I can find time to read more books.
