Random Photo Friday...
I have been going through photos lately and thought it would be fun to post some photos of friends, family and other random things each Friday.

Granted, I may only do this for 2 Friday's and then forget. So I make no guarantees how long this "feature" may last.

However, it does make me wish that I had a photo of the sharp dressed man at the bus stop with the ski goggles because I don't think anyone believes me that he exists.

Gopher Cabin Staff, 2004 (maybe?)

So, here is a photo from camp during Co-ed. Co-ed camp always fell the last 2 weeks of the camp season. Traditionally, the camps are single gender--and across the lake from one another. Very Parent Trap meets Poison Ivy don't you think?

And yes, there is the occasional attempt for a camper or two to sneak out. But they always get caught and they usually get sent home.

During co-ed, some of the girls staff move to boys camp and they have to do the usual cabin prep: bed assignments, name tags, job charts, etc. It is a well proven fact that boys do not care about crafty stuff. They could care less about how their chart looks.

So....we make a contest out of it. Best job chart wins some sort of homemade treat.

The staff of the Gopher cabin were up for the challenge.

Notice the space theme? Very much a job chart a little boy could take interest in. Every little boy has an inner Neil Armstrong!

But...it you look closely...you'll see Christmas lights in the shape of the Big Dipper.

That, my friends, was my idea.

I have a soft spot for the boys staff during this time because it is usually a girls cabin who wins the job chart contest. But not this time. I wanted a boys cabin to win.

So I pulled aside Kevin (the dude in the glasses) and said, "You should see if there are any lights in the warehouse. Obviously there were!

The guys of Gopher Cabin cleaned up--and won homemade cheesecake.

And I take full credit for the lights.
