Wow! Downer is totally awsome I’m having a lot of fun… I’m so glad my friends got me to come here!! This morning we had sausage and rainbow pancakes. My classes are Arts and Crafts, Archery, Soccer and BIC. I hope they are all fun. I’m taking BIC so I will not die running when soccer season comes around. Haha. Well I have to go help clean my cabin so we can hopefully (cross your fingers) take a shower today. L8ter

Last night was really cold for me. I kept kick my covers and then my sleeping bag fell on the floor. I lived though. When we were awakened by taps, I finally realized how loud trumpets are. Poor Mom and Dad, they have to listen to that every day (I play trumpet!). We went to flag raising and then had rainbow pancakes for breakfast. Then we went for first period. I had cartooning, then it was off to Drama. Annie, Katie, Emma, Cassie, and Mickmack were there too. Then we had one hour freetime. I went to Arts and Crafts. We made collages. Pretty cool. Then we were sent back up to our cabins before lunch. Now it’s time for lunch! Bye!

We got Hannah, Audrey and me,
Some funny girls that make you wanna pee.
Hittin’ our heads on the top bunk,
All of us together a great slam dunk.
Marissa, Kelsey, Ruby, Addie, Alison, Kelsie, Kristina and Maddy.
Food, fun and so much more,
I’m really glad I don’t have to sleep on the floor.
Shay and Shanna all pretty in pink,
Yeah, we wash our hair in the sink.
Emily, Katie, Sophie, and Emma,
Nothing really rhymes with Emma but Bemma.
Of course you can’t forget Katie O,
So wake up, yawn, and pass the joe!

The Days of Our Lives

This year at Downer, being my third year, was the best one yet. Thinking back now through the four or five days we were together, there are so many great memories that will stick with me forever. The Arts & Crafts, staying up all night, swimming, and telling scary stories making us frightened for hours. Hanging out with the cabin rules! Late night talks and everything else that makes becoming new friends great! Cabin time is fun, but chillen with the clan is great. The treasure hunts are relay races-awesome. Even though we didn’t always win, and weren’t always the first ones to the treasure, these activities were great. Evening Activities were great J ! Before bed, Campfire songs were the perfect way to end those humid nights and friendship circle. On Thursday, the last night campfire is so depressing knowing that we have to leave the next morning. Everyone on staff makes this a great place to be, and I can’t wait for next year. Well… I only have two more things to say… Bologna Rules.
