Summer has officially started here at Washington Family Ranch. This past Saturday was day one of week one. There are only about 560 campers here this week , which is a big number but small for this camp. Pretty soon we will have camps of around 700! I have started working in the Summer Office which consists of answering phones and making buttons for guests to wear… not the most thrilling position but it definitely beats the alternative of watching movies all day long and hopelessly searching for something, anything to do. Jordan is hard at work in the kitchen working mainly AM shifts with some PM. I think he is having fun getting to know the summer staff and workcrew in there with him.
We recently ventured more into town and something really exciting happened. WE GOT A COSTCO MEMBERSHIP! Ok, Ok, maybe you don’t think its really noteworthy, but we are so excited to buy in bulk, as a way to save money on groceries and trips into town. Costco is about two and a half hours away in Bend, along with stores like Target, Trader Joe’s, Whole Foods, etc. There are other grocery stores closer to us, but sometimes its fun to mix it up a little. We were really excited to visit Bend and hope to go there a lot more. It’s nice to be around a real town with cool shops and restaraunts to go to, that is definitely something we are missing from Asheville.
We are starting to know our neighbors better and better and enjoying learning the area in which we live. It’s definitely been an adjustment but we are enjoying the adventure of it
