Just a few pictures to post about Violet’s week at camp. She had a great time and is dying to go back for 2 weeks next year! The staff:camper ratio is amazing — these kids are very well taken care of. Every member of the staff seems to take a very personal interest in the villagers. (We were especially delighted by a woman — not sure what her position was — who told us V. was “very clever . . . very special.”)
Many of the staff live in China during the year — several were English professors at Chinese universities, one man is a professional musician. US college students also come to work as counselors.
Violet was despondent when we came to pick her up. She cried and cried as we drove away, although she cheered up as we drove home and talked about seeing little sister, swimming, etc. The girls really missed each other.
Violet has her own photos from disposable cameras, and once I get those we’ll try to post more info for those who are curious.
