Day 28:

I would just like to point out that I have a whole new level of respect for those that keep places clean and running.

We are in the middle of week two of camps, and my experience has been a whole lot different this week than it was last week. Last week, for those who aren’t good at remembering things (me), had my brothers and I as campers, which was all fun and games (and eating… wait, I already said fun). This week, however, we have been drafted to cleanup duty of a camp of two or three times as many campers as we had last week. The past two days have been eat breakfast, clean cafeteria, clean bathrooms, clean classroom, eat lunch, clean cafeteria, clean classroom, help with recreation time, eat dinner, clean cafeteria, collapse on my bed, fall asleep. And to top it all off, I’ve been battling hardcore dehydration (and losing…), which makes things fun, but oh well. It needs to be done.

So looking at the last few blogs, I have noticed we are listing things we will miss, so here goes:

  • Pineapple Fanta (I’m sorry everything else on the list, but this was the first thing that popped into my head.)

  • The awesome missionaries

  • The awesome locals

  • Card games (possible to play here at any time)

  • A cool local pool (hehe rhyme)

  • Getting people to laugh at me without seeing them face to face (I think it’s called a blog…?)

But c’mon, I think I might just not miss more than I will miss:

  • Sweat

  • Mops

  • Dehydration

  • Mopping

  • Spiders (poisonous ones)

  • Scorpions (when not viewed in the dark with a black light)

  • Having to drink so much water all the time

  • Being forced to write a blog when there was nothing to write about (just kidding. That never happened…)

  • Stuff that I can’t think of right now

Ok, so the second list is repetitive. Oh well, I was trying to prove a point. The truth is, I am totally going to miss Arizona. What am I writing about again?

Alright, I got nothing, so thanks for your support, God bless, and I will see you at the end of the ark ride (which is closer than I thought).
