It’s been a while

So, its been a little while since I posted last. Andros’s birthday party was cancelled unforuantly due to the monstrous storm last weekend, and while we initially thought we’d still have a party we’ve decided not to in the end because it’d just be kind of silly – easter’s next weekend so we’ll see most of Kevin’s family then, and most of mine we see fairly frequently anyhow. We had a fun day anyhow – lots of snow, playing with toys and coconut cake with cream cheese icing. Its pretty crazy to think that he’s really one year old already. Over the past week (starting like 1 or 2 days before his birthday), he’s been really learning to walk, and he’s gotten pretty good at it now. Walking across teh room from one thing to another is ‘old hat’ now!

Andros has been sick for the past few days, which has’t been fun, though he is finally getting better. He had a fever and a really runny nose and horrible cough for a couple days last week, but its mostly cleared up now.

My lifeguarding class is going well, starting week three now. On wednesday we start backboarding which is the really big important part of the class as far as I can tell. From the sounds of it we might actually get done a week or so early, which would be awesome… but we’ll see.

Camp

Well, first of all, I did not realize it’d been SO long since I last posted. Crazyness has ensued since then, starting with the Tae Kwon Do Tournament in Spain, and the exhibition there that I participated in (on my birthday!!), which was quite cool… The following day, I flew home from Spain to Pittsburgh, where we (dad & I) stayed at a friends house for the night. Got to see my old friend Jessie, which was very cool.

Then on the 15th of May I drove down here to S. Carolina to start work.. The camp is beautiful. Way up ontop of a mountain in the Blue Ridge, it has some amazing views. And, of course, its simply awesome to be with/around Kevin again.

My horses finally got here this Monday (21st), and so, ever since I’ve been riding and taking care of them. Which is awesome. They’re all pretty good – both looking, and fairly well trained. I’m actually extremely impressed with their overall quality (especially for camp horses!!). Went on a trail ride today, did some crazy exploring and getting lost (which was, as always, fun). Tommorrow is the first time we’ll actually give rides, so I’m kind of nervous about that. But it should be OK. I hope…

The kid I’m working with (the “assistant director”), seems pretty clueless. Apparently, he didn’t realize that you need to clean the barn. Apparently, I have to tell him such things, or he just doesn’t know. He also gives me the impression that he’s scared of horses (takes 3-5 minutes to catch one in a box stall… and another couple to kick each one out after feeding. But, then again, I’m not really surprised about this, just highly disappointed. Was hoping to have somebody with a clue. The other kid is apparently a bit slow. Supposedly they also just hired a girl from Spain, though it sounds like she’ll only be here for the first half of the summer. Which sucks. But, you’ll have taht I spose.

Anyhow, thats about all thats new with me… We saw the DaVinci Code, which was pretty good, and then yesterday we saw Over the Hedge, which was hysterical. Hammy kicks ass… I think thats about it.
