I admit that I’m not much of a camper. My idea of roughing it is normally a lower end Marriott. But this past weekend I volunteered to abandon my prissy girl ways and spend a weekend with about 30 awesome teens from the Mariemont High School Concert and Chamber orchestras.
I will admit that sleeping on the ground isn’t my preference, but I had a fantastic time and wouldn’t trade the experience for anything! I shared a tent with Mary Beth Khamis, the fabulous director of strings at Mariemont, and her cute dog Cinnamon. I don’t think Cinnamon liked sharing her space nor her mommy with me, but we all survived. Everybody looked a little rough after sleeping out overnight and paintball on Sunday, but it was well worth it.
Here is my slideshow of pics from the weekend. There are 118 photos in the slideshow, so it’ll take you about four minutes to spin through them all. – I hope you like them!
