Saturday, Aug. 4
Well, it is officially over now that the last of the dutchies (Harry and Theo) have left and yes, it does seem like the storm has lifted. It was such an emotionally charged experience that the letdown hits hard. It has taken a few days to get back to normal, but it has also been a time to plan for next summer as well.
The reaction that we have received from the locals and the dutchies has been very positive and that makes us want to do even better next year. We have set the week of July 20-25 for the 2008 camp at CBC. I already have heard from people wanting to register NOW for the camp.
Great news from Tim about rcovering Jip's camera from the Hilton Hotel. The pictures will be a lasting memory with every picture there is a story. It was very nice of Tim to put the pictures from the host families and Irene together on the memory stick for everyone.
It rained and stormed briefly last night -- finally !!
However, it is going to be a very hot week with the temperatures up to 98 f, that plus the humidity will make it very uncomfortable. We were lucky with the weather for our week, even though it was hot, it could have been even hotter.
I am anxiously awaiting the beginning of the European soccer season as I am able to watch many of the Leagues -- English, Spanish, French, Italian, Dutch, German.
Maybe someday we will see some of the dutchies in the Eredivisie.
Have a nice day, enjoy the weekend
