  • Day #13

    What’s Up Fort Hope? Well today was it, the first day of camp. After all the build up of the last two months, today was the day that we had been waiting for. All in all it was exactly what I expected. Things went somewhat smoonthly, but we definitely had some hiccoughs along the way. […]

  • Day #12

    The Calm Before the Storm… Today was a little bit of a lazy day…We got a late start on the day (we slept in a bit), but I think I made up for it by going for a solid run at about 10:15am. I went all around the outside edge of the community…I did two […]

    From Peanuts to the Point… So today was the start of the first of our 7 weekends in Fort Hope. I will be away for 8 weekends total, but only 7 of them will take place here in Eabametoong. Last night we stayed up rather late watching the movie Simon Birch. I know that I`ve […]

    Food, Run, Tag and Internet Today was a day of firsts. It was our first day with internet, our first day with real food, my first run and my first day playing tag outside with the kids for an hour and a half. Today I took the plunge and went for my first run in […]

  • Day #8

    Dynamic… So as you probably can tell, we are still currently without internet…I’m actually rather proud of myself that I have been able to keep writing consistently everyday to this point. Today was the biggest planning day that we have had for the camps so far. After yesterday’s long day of registrations and Canada Day […]

  • Day #7

    Happy Canada Day from Fort Hope… Happy Canada Day! Well, after last night’s rather melancholy entry, I woke up this morning feeling (tired of course) a little bit more positive. Perhaps I just needed a little bit of sleep to make things look a little rosier. Everyone always says that it’s the nights that are […]

  • Day #6

    Rushing Towards Photo Album Memories… So I was waiting for it to happen, and finally it has. I must admit that I officially counted the number of days that I will be away from home today. That is by no means a reflection of my first few hours in Fort Hope, but I think that […]
