After a drizzley Hamm's Bears session this morning, we filled up on quiche and fruit salad. We gathered under the awning (to avoid the rain) for Arts & Crafts time--making our own archery targets. We love paint pens.
Since we can't have everybody showering at the Powells' house, we are visiting the local Dallas Aquatic Center almost every day to swim, splash, and shower. We spent the better part of our morning there, and it was cannonball and corkscrew season.
Michael fixed fish and vegan tacos for lunch; he's the best at that. After a little "personal" time, Michael's mom's friend (former coworker from Evergreen Junior High) came down to teach the finer points (ha ha) of archery. Using our own targets, we achieved various levels of success. Bryan's "bullseye" target looks like he used his fingers; maybe he just used bigger arrows than the rest of us.
Later in the afternoon, we wrote notes home on "Camp Share-A-Tent" postcards (available for sale: contact us). Ted prepared lasagne with garlic bread and Greek salad for dinner, then we danced it all off at our barn dance, led by Dr. Rita Kirk Powell, PhD. That's right, folks, Brittany's mom is a doctor of dance and has the papers to prove it. We learned the basics of square dance (do-si-do, allaman left), though we might remember it as holding sweaty hands and dodging a couple of damp barn cats.
