It’s Junk Food Day! We woke up this morning to a breakfast of donuts, pop tarts, and sugary cereals. We can’t wait to see what food the next meals bring!
The Wheel is still on everyone’s mind, particularly the gory ending. I forgot to mention yesterday that the Mayor had his heart ripped out by his wife. Oof!
After pool activities ended yesterday, we gathered up for evening meeting, where we heard the results of the cabin inspections. In the Younger Half, a dragon and his knight searched for the dirtiest cabin to burn down. During their search, they discovered that LCH was the cabin to demolish. But the knight couldn’t let the dragon do so, and struck the dragon down. For the older half, a Princess decided that Deer Meadows was the scariest, while Taj was the most indifferent. Fiddler’s Green won cleanest for the Younger Half, and Halley’s Comet won cleanest for the Older.
We headed into the dining hall for a delicious meal of pizza. There were so many options to choose from, like veggie pizza, pesto and tortellini pizza, and various meat pizzas. Then there was delicious watermelon for dessert.
With our stomachs warm and full, we had Valley Fest! There were 32 acts that performed, and all were truly amazing. There were instrumental performances – a fiddler’s tune on the violin, a guitar rendition of Wild Horses, a flute performance, a classical violin performance, and a juggling drums performance (the two campers traded off juggling and playing with the bowling pins). There were also musical performances that involved singing – we heard A Thousand Years, Ho Hey accompanied by the ukelele, Anyone Else But You (also on with the ukelele), Royals, Someone Like You, Blowin’ in the Wind, This Love, Brave, You and I, I’ve Got Confidence, All of Me, and Let it Be. We also had campers perform dances – one to Rolling in the Deep and another to Waka Waka. We were all amazed by the talent in HVC, and can’t wait to see more performances from these folks over the next week and a half.
After the delightful night, we climbed into bed where we dozed off to the lovely sounds of schvitz. And that brings us to now, Junk Food Day and the 4th day of classes.
Be sure to check out the awesome pictures of Gross Day activities and Valley Fest!
Until next time,
