5 - 12
Mornings start at 7:45 am with a wake-up by the C.I.T.s. Every morning is different, today they brought Jagger the calf into my cabin.
Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day, pancakes, muffins... today it's baked French toast!
After breakfast we do morning chores, this includes feeding the animals, looking for eggs, and cleaning the barn. We work in our "chore groups" to get the job done.
"Farm show prep" is my favorite part of the day. This session I chose to work with Annalise the heifer.
I lead her up and down the lane and practice lining her up for the farm show.
After farm show prep is "camper/cabin cleanup," that gives us a chance to tidy up our cabins and shower before "circle meeting" on the lawn. During "circle meeting" we report to Gay about our progress with our animals. Then we sign up for "afternoon activities."
Lunch time! Today is nacho day, yum!
My friends and I head back to the cabin after lunch for "rest hour," this is when I usually
read or write letters.
After rest hour is the afternoon activity. There are usually three or four activities to choose from, they range from arts & crafts to hiking. Today I'm doing one of my favorites... heifer washing. Annalise needs a good scrub!
Before dinner we have some free time. This is a good chance to hang out with my friends and make friendship bracelets.
Dinners on the farm are delicious. Tonight is Turkey Dinner and I'm getting extra mashed potatoes!
After dinner we do evening chores. Usually this is tidying up or feeding animals. Tonight my chore group is doing the dishes. We turn on the music and have a great time!
Tonight's evening activity is roller skating. Sometimes we go bowling, do karaoke, or put on the "Talentless Show," it's always fun! When we get back to the farm we'll all get ready for bed.
10pm is lights out, can't wait to see what tomorrow brings!
