SINCERELY 'FRO ME TO YOU

I mentioned my childhood camp in an earlier post. I loved working at Camp Sankanac. I like to think it was a prelude to parenting. We chased around extremely energetic kids, cajoling them to take naps and eat their vegetables all week long.

On the weekends, groups of teenaged camp counselors would invade the home of a counselor's parents and veg out, eat all the food in the house, and try to catch up on sleep and adult conversation. Then, on Sunday, we put on our matching outfits and headed back for another exhausting, fun-filled week.

That would be me on the right, with my oh-so-stylin' 80's poodle perm ....

For more flashback fun, check out We Are That Family.

How fun! Those days were fun, weren't they? Oh, to be carefree! I wouldn't go back though :D

Love the permed hair. On you, of course, mine was more fro-like!

Thanks for participating!

oh this makes me miss my camp days too! I encourage all of my students to work away at a camp during the summer. Its one of the highlights of my life.

I used to LOVE summer camp. Now my kids are getting to the age where they can participate. I hope they like it as much as I did.

L-o-v-e the hair!

Never worked at a camp, but I chaperoned last week at our church camp. Now that was an experience. :)

Those picture were taken at the aquarium in Chattanooga.

Man we could have been perm twins! You know, I don't think I enjoyed the camps I went to as much as I should have...

Oh and do you mind if I add you to my links?

Camp counseling memories are some of the best, aren't they?
