Every time we make it to a new continent, I have one day where I sleep into the late afternoon. Last night, I was extremely tired and jet lagged. Sure enough, today at 2:00 PM I woke up. It was a bummer day for me. I had to do math. I slept in too late to carry out my mom’s secret idea to take me into town after I had finished my work. I cut my foot and spent half an hour in a cold shower cleaning it up, and I am now writing my blog when people are outside playing ball and having a great time.
My parents left for town at 10:00 in the morning, intending for me to sleep for another hour and then start my math. However, I woke up at two when my parents got home and the rest of the day was plainly all math. After my 2:00 PM wake up, my dad did a kayak run that my mom did not want to do. My mom had thought it would be fun for me to go into town and be shown around, but instead, I now had my math to do and she stayed home while I did it. By the time I had all my supplies together and had eaten lunch (my breakfast) it was already 3:00. I did a unit of math and finished around 5:00, but I actually was not finished because it was approaching blog time. This was a real bummer because I rarely get one on one time with my parents and going into town with my mom would have been really fun.
Before starting my blog, I nicked my foot on the side of the shower and had to deal with another stupid hassle. In order to wash off the cut, I had to take a shower. In the middle of my shower, the water turned cold and I finished washing my hair in ice cold water. With a wicked brain freeze, I walked back to the room to write my blog.
I was just starting my blog when a knock came on the door. It was Dave wanting to know if I wanted to play a game of bocci ball. Of course, my blog made the answer plainly “no.” After a couple of minutes, screams of laughter came from outside. Happily, my super mom stayed with me to keep me company and she suggested I listen to my music to keep out the sounds of happiness I was missing.
Today was disappointing. Hopefully, tomorrow will be better. In fact, tomorrow I will do my first class lll rapid ever! It starts at the camp, and ends in a big pool. I have scouted it several times over the last two days and Dad, Mom, and Nora will accompany me.
