I’m so thankful for all my helpers! I had camp counselors and junior counselors helping me. Some I could not have survived without, they took initiative and made great suggestions! Some, I slowly came to realize, needed direction and I think by the end of the week I was getting the hang of delegating tasks and asking for help so things got much smoother. I’m usually horrible at asking for help, I’m a doer, if I want something done I just do it, so I’m proud of myself for asking for the help I needed. I was even delegating tasks to my students to get them involved in set up and clean up.
The hard part of the week was dropping my own kids off and not seeing them all day! I missed them tremendously! I can’t imagine having to do that every week! I am so glad I am able to be with them most of the time! This weekend I relished every second with them because I missed them so much! But it also felt very special to be important in another child’s life, even if it was for such a brief time. I had students tell me how much fun they had, how they Loved art camp, and some even made me special gifts during the week! It was such an honor to see their beautiful work, it’s like seeing a peice of their soul. Art is very personal to me. They all had wonderful talents, and to be part of their creativity and imagination is a privilege I’ll never forget!
