– Opening day of Eliteam 2010 was smokin’ hot! We made good use of the cool gym and shaded woods, and had a great day. We started off with some stretching in the gym, then the “name game”… “Ambidextrous Abigail”, “Celeste is Best”, “Dangerous Drew”… then off to the woods for some team-building activities; The Nitro, Triangle, Tire Crossing and Spider Web. We finished up with a first look at the obstacle course. Clearly the cargo net is going to give the kids some problems! By dinner-time, the kids were ready to EAT! Plates were overflowing with spaghetti, along with broccoli, salad, garlic bread and fresh fruit. And of course the kids love the endless supply of chocolate milk. With full bellies, we hit the gym again, this time for a “treasure hunt”. Ex. Find someone who… can roll a kayak, has fallen off a horse, has a sister or brother here, has changed a dirty diaper. One camper who was looking for someone who had been in the Olympics asked me, “What’s the main dude’s name? … you know, your husband.” We ended with an epic Girls vs Guys dowel race (girls won), pole games and relays out on field. Penalty push-ups & sit-ups were doled out for messy lines. Let’s just say Vinnie’s line got a great workout tonight. The kids are now tucked into bed. Another big day tomorrow!
