Pardon Me

I was saying a lot of, “pardon me” last week.  The whirlwind known as Abercorn has left and Camas is now a quiet place.  The kids last week have a thick Glasgow accent and it was very tough to understand them.  They were a lot of fun and it was great seeing them thrive in the Camas environment.

Last weeks group had a few kids diagnosed with ADHD from 14 to 17 years of age.  The group leader, Derek, told me that if some of the kids teachers came out for a visit they would not recognize the kids.  Derek commented that the structured lifestyle, for example a regular bedtime which allowed the kids to get enough sleep, and the rapid drop in sugar consumption played a huge role in the groups behaviour.  Many of them were able to sit still for extended periods of time.  The group enjoyed drawing and painting, something Derek mentioned, they do not do at home because they do not have the concentration for it.

We have a small group this week.  It is an adult group and the theme is Little Book Big Book.  The Celts called the Holy Bible the little book.  The big book is creation so we are tying the two together.  Camas is a very good place to implement our current theme.  As our time here is drawing ever closer to a close I am making sure I am appreciated our lifestyle and surroundings.  Two of the guests are from America and one is a hockey fan.  I am looking forward to talking hockey.  I feel I have been deprived to talk to someone in person about hockey.  John has a good idea of how much I like to talk about hockey.

Some exciting news.  Mrs. Turkadactyl and I received a postcard from my parents and the Mrs. also received a postcard from Anne.  We have them tacked on a wall in our bedroom.  The fun does not stop there.  Carlee will be sending me her rendition of a Turkadactyl.  It is exciting to receive mail out here.

I made a mistake on a past posting.  We in fact will be receiving one more young peoples group.  The following two weeks will be adult groups to be followed by the young people.  Hi-5!  I hope to catch up on some rest this week.  Last week was an active week.
