Great week

This has been a really good week so far. We have been pulling in more people than we have all summer! We have consistently hit two hundred or more people coming to the site, which keeps everyone running around, checking crab traps, and showing kids how to fish. The other day we had these huge camp groups come by. We had ten to fifteen kids per group. At first, it feels like a lot, but once you get into it, it is impossible not to have fun.

We have had the same crew at Children's for the past few weeks, but recently we have had some new JPA's and LHE's come in: Carlos, Ian, Arianna, Ahmed, Dexter, and Max. I love my team, and it has been really great getting to know some of the other JPA's and LHE's. We really do have a great group of young men and women this summer. I have never seen a group that age be so kind, responsible, and generous. They really want to help the kids they work with, and it is wonderful to see the joy they both bring to the kids, and receive in return. I am especially impressed with Mark Rose. He carries himself the way a leader should. He is humble, and teaches by example rather than by preaching. I look forward to working with him, and other JPA's and LHE's, more.
