Wednesday Evening at High Trails

Everyone had a great time today! The snow was a fun obstacle to overcome - and more importantly, it was fun to explore in.

The snow died down this afternoon, allowing discovery groups to spend about half the time inside and half the time outside. We heard many excited conversations at each table during dinner as each 6th grader shared the highlights of his or her day with the rest of the cabin.

While we didn't get extra play in the snow this afternoon, students did spend time working on their skits for tomorrow night's evening program. We are planning some exciting recreational activities for tomorrow afternoon.

Everyone enjoyed a good dinner and the Halloween cookies for dessert were a huge hit. The Hoedown and Nature Carnival tonight were high points in many of the students' days.

We can't wait to see what tomorrow brings!


  1. Yo Olwyn Doyle!
    The house is soooooooooooooooo quiet without you! And tidy too! Scamper says 'Woof!' (He got groomed.) You missed a snow day. Kieran misses you tons - we all do! I know you are having a blast so just continue to ENJOY! Can't wait to see you Friday!
    Lots of love,
    Mama, Daddy, Kieran & Scamper

  2. Angelica, We miss you as the snow continues falling lightly. School was closed on Wednesday and no soccer practice - dah! We have been anxious about the weather in the mountains and pray you are all safe, warm, and having a great time. Looking forward to seeing you on Friday. Love ya!!!
    Grandpa, Marnie, Arianna, & Rose

  6. Hey Haley,
    I hope you are having a great time. We all miss you and your smile... the house is so quiet without your stories and laughter. See ya on friday afternoon love and kisses, Momma Daddio, Katee, Desi dog, and Bobo.

  7. Rissi-
    I was worried that you guys had tons of snow and couldn't get out and do the planned activities and that everyone would be disappointed that it didn't go well. Sounds to me like this has been PERFECT! I'm so glad all you 6th graders are having so much fun. I'd say you missed 2 snow days but it really doesn't sound like you're "missing" anything! Keep havin fun guys. We're all anxiously awaiting your return so we can hear all about it. Oh, and your brother is really missing you- he's gone absolutely crazy recording tv shows he doesn't want you to miss. LOL! Lotsa love- mom, dad, Gavin, and uncle Ry. Grandma says she misses you like crazy too. See ya tomorrow!!

  8. Allison,
    You are missed! Praying you are having a great time. Stay safe and warm. Can't wait to see you on Friday.
    Mom, Erica and Missy

  9. Hi Ruthie!

    I'll bet all this snow in the mountains reminds you of living in Black Forest. How beautiful everything must be! Stay warm, draw some pictures for us, and be prepared to tell me about all your wonderful adventures!

    xxo -- See you tomorrow!


  10. Samir and all the 6th graders, counselors & teachers:

    I keep thinking about you out there in the middle of what the national news is reporting as "the worst October snowstorm in Colorado in 12 years" -- WHAT FUN!!!! ;-)

    I know you guys are having a great time, we love you very much and can't wait to see you tomorrow!!
