Aah, spring IS in the air. Okay, it was rainy drizzly ALL day, but spring is clearly around the corner. I know because (1) we changed the clocks and (2) it's state assessment test time.
Here in Colorado, and some other states, all high school juniors are required to take the ACT in April. Since a good bulk of my tutorage is ACT preparation, I can't say that I dislike that requirement. This week, I have the fun task of running daily sessions with one of our local high school's entire class of juniors. The administrators refer to them as "trainings", but I like to think of it as "ACT camp".
Maybe it's because I never attended a summer camp myself, so I get to play camp now. I did go to four days of flag camp back in high school band - this one time? at band camp? - days, but that was WORK. I was all, "where are the crafts? the campfires??" instead of four days with a flagpole. Camp. Nah, actually it was fun, just not what I would call "camp", like from the made up images in my head.
I did also do a few summers of Vacation Bible School. I always enjoyed that, it was like Sunday school only it was fun and we got to wear shorts and stuff. And yes, there were crafts and games. Still no campfires though.
Well, I'm having fun anyways. I hope my little campers are too. At least I've yet to be mummified, and there have been no fires. The week is still young, though.
