Who’s Going To Blow The Whistle?

This morning we worked hard once again to prepare for the play on Saturday. It’s all coming together!

These are our awesome new accompanists, Cindy (guitar) and Andy (keys.) We are very very happy to have musicians for the play!

(Note: Cindy is the mom of our own awesome counselor Taylor!

While Andy’s origin story is more shrouded in mystery.)

We practiced our lines…

_DSC0849

_DSC0855

Our songs…

_DSC0845And our dance moves!

(Chris B. is doing “the worm” while Gaby and Phillip are doing “bird about to eat the worm.”)

We headed to the beach…

Justin, can’t you relax a little more?

_DSC1046Games are fun at the beach.

Mad Libs are fun on the beach too!

We’re going to make Adam give us an update on Cloud Atlas every day at the beach.

Claire and Sarah O. are making sure Jack doesn’t get overheated at the beach. So thoughtful!

_DSC0970

And Adam is making sure Illianna doesn’t float away in her tube.

We really work these campers into the ground!

_DSC0944

Did I say something about “into the ground”?

We stayed at the beach for a cookout, and for dessert…

_DSC0987

S’mores!

But the best was yet to come!

Rick, Jude, and the other drummers arrived for Drumming on the Beach.

_DSC0026

A lot of our other friends showed up too.

_DSC0986

Like Robbie Gale.

_DSC1043

And Amanda and Jillian.

We all danced!

James B. had a unique style of dancing that involved percussion on his belly. James, doesn’t that start to sting after a while?

The music seemed to make everyone smile even more than usual.

But two people enjoyed the drumming more than anyone.

One was Chris M.

_DSC0025

_DSC0066

Because he got to blow the whistle!

The other one was Michael F.

 

_DSC1078

So it looks like Hudson is making a rude gesture…

_DSC1083

But actually he was just creating Michael F.’s most favorite sound.

_DSC0089

Then Michael insisted we end with the song “Ake Wowo,” an old Jabberwocky favorite.

_DSC0096

And then everyone “went to sleep.”

_DSC0100

Lulled by the beautiful sound.

Michael F. even got to sit in the front seat of one of the vans on the way back to camp (not pictured), so this was really his perfect night.

Thanks, Rick! See you next Tuesday for more!
