When I try and capture what I will write about in my daily blog, I typically observe our campers and am able to describe to you at home what has happened here at camp that day but today I was compelled to play so I jumped right in. There was a group of boys sitting playing cards around the apple tree and I just had to join. They taught me a few card games I have never heard of. These 4 boys and I had the absolute best time playing card games for 30 minutes. There was not a care in the world for those 30 minutes. As they each explained the games to me, I kinda felt like a camper and sat indian style playing card games around the apple tree. No distractions , no ringing phones or buzzing devices and I even turned off my walkie talkie for that half hour. I haven’t sat and played cards for a very long time and as my point of view is normally of our campers and the great benefits that occur from them being here today that benefit was happening to me. If I learned one thing from those 4 boys who taught me a few new cool card games it is to put those devices down, step away from your computers and play. The world didn’t end and all was ok without my immediate attention for those 30 glorious minutes. I was totally engaged for those 30 minutes and had a blast. These kids may really be onto something. So I have made a commitment when life returns to normal as of August 11th, I will carve out 30 minutes to sit indian style with my girls, unplug and play some card games.
