  • Day #18

    Hand Drums Well, it rained again today…It was also cold again today…haha…Just when we thought that we were maybe going to be rid of the cold, wet weather the skies over Fort Hope darkened once again and on came the wind, rain and cold! I don’t really mind yet though, I’m in a rather calm, […]

    Sleepy… I’m not going to lie…Right now I am exhausted and I really need to sleep. It isn’t so much as a result of a long day with the kids, it’s more so a result of a long day in general. We had a really long planning session tonight with the entire team, and as […]

    Changing Directions… What to say about today…Well, the day started off nicely here in Fort Hope. The sun was shinning for once and it was a nice mild temperature.

    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. […]

    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 […]
