Govern’s Travel Diary

Saturday, 08 Jul 2006

Location: Camp Stewart, Kerrville, USA

MapOver the last few days, I have made it my mission to know my kids names, and their backgrounds, interests and other information which are required to get them to like both me and my co-counselor, 'Aussie Legend', Brook Kennedy.
Brook is your typical surf dude, and has the haircut to match it, he's really laid back about things, which make it easier to interact with the kids in our cabin, unlike the 'Bob Dylan', 'peace and love', 'god will save us all' attitude shown by first term counselor, Blake Law.

My kids range from Jamie, who is your typical, all-american kid, whose Mom drives a brand new H3 Humvee and whose Dad is currently away in Iraq. God Bless America...apparently!
Then we've got Russell, whose Mom died last year, so he gets a little worked up when anyone mentions their Mom, but he copes well with it, and has taken to me and Brook as Brother figures.
The rest of the kids are all pretty normal, and so hopefully this should be a nice and easy term.

Only time will tell...until tomorrow, bye for now!
