Nat and Mads

It was easy to spot Natalie and Maddy in the sea of kids when I picked them up from school; fun radiates off of them at a magnitude greater than most people I know. When I think of girls who are confident and joyful and bold this pair comes to mind. I first met them in the halls of Junior High and now know them as Tecumseh kids. I can't wait for Maddy to be a CILT in Session 1 and for Natalie to be a Torchebearer for her first time at camp.

The sun was so hot it felt like summer and we soaked up the air conditioning in Orange Leaf as we ate giant bowls of frozen yogurt and told stories and made lists about why we're excited for camp.
