This is who I am missing really bad while I am in China:
Archive for July 26, 2008
Believe it or not, today our China journey comes to an end. We have another half day of Sunshine camp. By lunch today, camp will officially be over. Tonight we plan on going around to a touristy place to do some last minute shopping and souvenir-buying. I plan on finishing tonight with a big dinner all together somewhere to celebrate Kirsten McMillan’s birthday.
Yesterday all of the groups went to the beach to have a sand castle building competition. Some of the groups were amazing.
Last night, we had a big, camp-wide talent show. SOC represented during the talent show as Mackenzie Tatum and Gabriel Devoto performed a hip hop dance/stomp routine, Gabriel also displayed his ninja-like numb-chuck skills, Heather Cromer and Elise Rascoe danced to Michael Jackson’s “Thriller“, and Kyle Byrum and Parey Draper did a skit that included acting, High School Musical, and traditional Chinese dancing. My highlight (as well as a lot of people’s I believe) was two separate performances: one Chinese girl recited PERFECTLY Martin Luther King Jr’s “I Have a Dream” speech. It was unbelievable. Also, one Chinese girl and one American girl got up on stage together and sang “Amazing Grace.” It was powerful.
All that is on the program agenda for camp is the “closing ceremonies.” I will make sure to take some good pictures to share with you tomorrow. I will get another chance to get on here tomorrow to share one last time when we are in the Korea airport. On our way here I found a great wi-fi spot that let me access my blog. I will give you one last final update complete with pictures and updates.
Make sure to check tomorrow for another update. Love you guys very much. We will be home shortly.
UPDATE: The Yankees still haven’t lost since I have been in China. Looks like I am going to have to take one for the team and stay here till they win the World Series. As a true fan, it would be my honor.
