Week four is quickly coming to the end and this means the summer sessions are half over. We can’t believe how fast the summer is flying by and we are having so much fun! Our host family came with their three daughters as well as no shortages of fun activities. The theme this week was Christmas in July and the host family planned advent themed Chapel for us. The lodge is decorated in Christmas lights and decorations. Between creative crafts and outdoor games, they host family has kept us all very busy. They introduced us to a new way to showcase the beautiful artwork that is made each week – we hung up all the art on a piece of wood in the lodge.

The host family ran splash kickball and blind volleyball. Both of these games were excellent ways for us to cool down this week. Today we made paper mache on balloons.

Our host dad and two cottagers built a mud shed. We are super thankful for their hard work and dedication while making it and we can’t wait to break it in with the cottagers.

Since it is Christmas in July – we felt it was only right to cook a Turkey for potluck [as well as cookies- for Santa of course 😉 ]. We hope to see you at potluck with your favourite holiday dish. Potluck is every Saturday starting at 1pm and include swimming, tractor ride and potluck. We hope to see you there.
