it's been a while ...

Well, where do I start?
I can barely remember the last few days, let alone a few weeks!
Been having fun, have been in woodwork part of arts and crafts recently. But woodwork has now finished for the rest of summer. Yay! It's just arts & crafts now, if I'm needed.
Every summer towards the end of camp there is an event called maccabiah (mac-ca-bi-a) No one knows when it is going to start, but when it does, it goes for 3 days. The entire camp is split into two and everyone in each team gets a t-shirt with the team colour and the name of the team written on it. It's basically a colour war, if you know what that is. Anyway, Taz and I were on the same team, red, and this years two teams were "Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory" (the original with Gene Wilder) and "The Wizard of Oz" I spent the entire three days holed up in arts and crafts working on costumes, a plaque, a banner, decorations, costumes, decorating a golf cart. All kinds of things. I was working 9.30am til 3.30a everyday. It was so much fun!!!
Taz and I were on "The Wizard of Oz" team. I made a tornado out of chicken wire on the first day (for the golf cart). Then Taz and Amy started working on other items for decorationg Sobel Hall for the final part on the third night. Using chicken wire. We all are covered in cuts from the wire. Taz and Amy made a horse out of wire, it was the most impressive thing we made. I also made the wicked witches legs complete with red shoes out of wire.
So, anyway, turns out we were prety behind blue during the final rounds of the war. But, red came through, Red Won!!!!!! By 140 points!!!! I was so impressed with all the work everyone put in! Sobel looked amazing, before the kids destroyed it, one side (the stage) was ours, complete with emerald city on the stage and blue had the front entrance.
The kids leave in 5 days!!!!!!!!! YAYAYAYAYAYAYAYAYAY!!!!!
Anyway, better get going.
Later ...
