getting DD11 from diabetes camp

I hugged DD11 for the longest time when I saw her!

I went into the cabin & couldn’t find her. I saw her bags all packed up by her bed, but she was not there. Her counselor had to go get her. She was in the bathroom “doing” her hair. When I hugged her, we both had tears rolling down our faces.

On the last night of camp, she was awarded the Code of Life award, the highest honor bestowed at the camp. One child from each cabin gets the award during each session. Her cabin mates & counselors voted on things like integrity, spirit, sense of humor, leadership, attitude, friendship, etc. She got to sign her name on a piece of paper & then have it burned into the Code of Life wall in the lodge. She was so cute showing me.

When we got home, she was very happy, dancing around & singing karaoke with DD13 & two of their cousins (ages 13 & 9), and telling stories. She’s tan, tired & happy and full of knowledge & stories.

I’m so glad she’s home. I could hardly sleep Friday night with the anticipation.

We’re leaving today for a week in Branson. I’m looking forward to having a relaxing time with my kiddos plus one niece, hanging out by the pool & hunting around in antique shops.

  1. Sounds like great fun – a week relaxing! I know you must be proud of DD11 and she should be proud of herself, too. What an award for her to receive! You must be a great mom for your girls!

  2. Hi. My name is Eugene Gershin. I’d like to welcome you to Obadiah Shoher’s blog, Samson Blinded: A Machiavellian Perspective on the Middle East Conflict.

    Obadiah is a pen name of a politician. He writes extremely controversial articles about Israel, the Middle East politics, and terrorism.

    Obadiah advocates political rationalism instead of moralizing. He is economic liberal and political conservative.

    Google refused advertising our site and Amazon deleted reviews of Obadiah’s book. Nevertheless, Obadiah’s is the largest Jewish personal blog, read by more than 100,000 people monthly. 210,000 people from 81 countries downloaded Obadiah’s book. The blog was voted the best overall in People’s Choice: Jewish and Israeli blogs Awards, received Webby Honoree and other awards.

    Please help us spread Obadiah’s message, and mention the blog in one of your posts, or link to us. We would greatly appreciate your comments at http://www.samsonblinded.org/blog

    Best wishes,

    Eugene Gershin
