Off to Camp Again

The girl is practically a jet setter. She has been gone somewhere one week every month this summer. In June she went to Birch Bay with Grandma and Grampa. In July she was off to church camp on the peninsula. Now she is down in Oregon at deaf camp. One of the goals is for her to improve her signing skills, as most of the kids rely on only signing to communicate. This is the highlight of her summer, and she has been looking forward to it all year. As good as she is at verbal communication, I think she just feels like she is getting a break by being around other deaf kids for a while.

Hopefully, when she starts school this fall, she will make friends with other deaf kids who attend the same school. This will be the first time since first grade that she has had other deaf kids around her at school. I know she is looking forward to it.
