It almost five a.m. and I am listening to the 50th anniversary tour of the Beach Boys and their music. They still sound just as good as they did when I was younger.

Getting ready for day two of our Kids Day Camp. I have a great crew. Not only did yesterday run super smoothly (specially for a first day with a whole new team), but we are 3/4 ready for today!

I didn't sleep well last night and am very sore all over today. Not sure what is going on - I certainly didn't overdo it yesterday. But we shall see what today brings. Being surrounded by tons of young people can be the best medicine.

Thank you Kylie and Addie. Yes, it was a very good day - my 7 yr. old granddaughter said it was the best day of her whole life. LOL! The 2 yr. old had never seen a river before, and the 10 yr. old was a big help with keeping an eye on the littler ones. We'll probably go again next week, it's only about an hour's drive.

LP, your kids camp sounds like fun. Yes, kids have a way of knocking whatever ails ya right out. Hope you feel better.

Thanks, Cheryl. Your time with your grandchildren is truly precious!

The kids were good medicine today as were my wonderful team of helpers. I found myself sitting down most of the time because they did all the work. I got to do the fun parts like hand out the snacks and start prep for our big snack on Friday. It is always something special and this year it is a "blue" cupcake with marshmallow "clouds" on top. The theme of the week is Sky!

Right now I have my feet up for a rest before I have to start baking cupcakes and making blue fondant.

I miss being active in the community. I have the services available to me to get out. But once I get there I can't walk too much. (Sit down most of the time) I get out of breath very easily. And chest pains are right there ready to strike. Having three heart attacks last year has scared the bejesus out of me. Last year was not my healthiest year. I have always enjoyed working with kids. Specially the little ones. My favorite times were with the 4H kids. And then the Girl Scouts. Adults are too argumentative.

At the end of The Actors Studio, James Lipton asks four questions. One of them is "What is your favorite sound." For me it is the laughter and giggling of small children. The simplest things in life amuse them. When you see the world through their eyes, it looks so different and filled with fun.

Thank you. I try to stay hydrated but in this heat it's hard to keep anything cold for to long.
