Joel: Cathy Tea! Come on, you’re late for our session!
CT: I’m coming! I’m coming!
Joel: Here you are! Come and sit down quickly, since we have to be quick.
CT: So, Joel, how do you feel the first session of camp went?
Joel: I think our first session of camp went really well! Arabella, Corey and Zerxes seemed to have an amazing time while at camp, and it was really sad to see them go. I hope I get to see them again someday. Also, it’s nice that Free-Jon and Emelia are staying for the second session, I’m really excited to see what’s going to happen.
CT: Yeah. I’m still so touched that Emelia came all the way back through space and time to be a kid with Free. That’s what I call a true friendship.
Joel: You know what I loved? I loved taking the kids to the library and seeing them read. It was nice seeing their imaginations explore different worlds!
CT: I loved the teahouse! All those plants! Those lights! It was like a magic fairy world. The kids seemed to have a lot of fun, too.
Joel: Oh yeah! I totally loved the teahouse as well, since I met this guy who actually writes by hand! I mean, how amazing is that?
CT: Now that takes dedication! I used to write by hand whenever I wanted to feel an emotional connection with my words, but now, because I like the way the electricity of my thoughts hooks up with the electricity of the keyboard, I pretty much always use the keyboard when writing. It feels more immediate to me, by now.
CT: So what did we learn from what went well that we can build on in the next session?
Joel: Hmmm, I do feel that we need more flour for the cupcakes since I’m running low. Also, I think that we should try and give the kids new experiences that the kids from the previous session didn’t have before. But, I also think that we should keep some things the same so that each kid has a common experience.
Joel: Just thinking about Session 2 gets me all excited! Who’s coming anyway?
CT: Here’s who’s coming: Sasha Pruett, Simon Skinner, and Fiona Gardner! And of course, Free and Em are staying on for this session, also.
CT: What are your suggestions for activities this session?
Joel: Well, I think I want to take the kids to the museum, and also I feel that I want to tell my own story at the campfire. It’ll be such an amazing story, since I’ve already thought of what I want to tell!
CT: Oh, I can’t wait! I’ve got a story to tell, too. I’m telling an old oral fairy tale that’s been passed down for generations!
Joel: You know what would be most awesome? If we gave the kids a gigantic cupcake that’s at least this big!
Joel: And then, it thanked them for being part of our camp session and we hope that they’ll come back soon!
CT: Hmmm. I’ll have to think about that.
Joel: Yeees! Thank you Cathy Tea!
CT: I didn’t say we could do it, just that I’d think about it! That’s a lot of flour, and I’m not sure how we could get the giant cupcake to talk. Unless you or Free-Jon were hidden inside of it. And that would be… just weird.
CT: But I’m sure whatever we do, it’ll be awesome. Even if we just eat regular size cupcakes, your cupcakes are amazing and put everybody in a good mood. I think you must add a secret happiness ingredient.
Joel: I can’t believe that Session 2 is starting so soon! I’m looking forward to meeting all the kids!
CT: I’m so excited! The new campers are arriving in the morning! We’re gonna have a great time! I just know it!
