she got to sleep on the top bunk...such a treat!
Bean had such a great time at camp last week!!
She said she only cried once. ;)
She made lots of friends...only girls because boys are just yuck!
She jumped in the freezing cold lake to become a polar bear.
She canoed and did archery and took hikes and played games and had counselors with funny names. (Oogie and Flounder!)
translation: I went canoeing for the very first time.
I like camp!
she said she almost made a bulls eye
translation: she got really close to the target!!
"orts" translation: what you left on your plate after a meal
lake next to campfire
sign on her bunk, name cropped out, obviously!
We are still getting bits and piece of her adventure and probably will for weeks to come as she remembers all the fun she had and as we think of questions to ask!
The most prominent comment has been that she LOVED CAMP and that she REALLY, REALLY wants to go back next year!!
Numbers wise she did really well. She had a 500-something after a pod change (they didn't do our normal of adding to the first bolus, but it was quickly corrected, thankfully) and had a few 70s, but over all it was a pretty good numbers week. The camp nurse did some adjusting to corrections after seeing patterns, so it was nice to know that it wasn't just 'blindly' following the PDM, but making 'logical' changes as needed.
It was a learning experience for all of us and thankfully it was an easy lesson! No big problems, no major D-issues, no 'come pick her up' phone calls, and no Ubergeek renting a boat to stake out the camp on the lake!!
We would have paid any amount of money to have had this little video clip emailed to us, though!
we had encouraged her to vlog about her experiences
unfortunately the camera 'messed up' early in the week
and even though it was an easy fix, it wasn't fixed
(can understand them not wanting to mess with it and break it!)
so she didn't get a chance to vlog or take many pictures
I understand why there's no communication...if they talk to someone at home they would be more likely to want to go home...but other than the letter that came the day before she got home, we heard nothing!
I think that was the hardest part; no I KNOW that was the hardest part!
At least next year we will have a better idea of what goes on and know that she's loving every minute of it!!
