Conquering the Moonwalk!
The moonwalk was a busy place as many people attempted to cross it from the trampoline to the iceberg this past summer of 2015. Seventy courageous people were successful in crossing it! The youngest challengers to conquer it were two six year olds- one boy and one girl! A four year old boy gets a special honour as he crossed over the moonwalk on his hands and knees. The oldest person to successfully get across the moonwalk was 58 years old!
There were somersaults and backwards walking…there were different methods of getting across, both fast and slow. Lots of fun to watch both the successes and epic failures!
What will 2016 bring? More challenges!
Name that Cottage!
Throughout the summer, the challenge of naming the cottages kept everyone guessing. Families worked together to find the perfect names. Everyone had lots of fun coming up with creative ideas. We want to thank everyone for their creative entries and the fun that was put into the responses. It was a difficult decision to decide which theme to go with as there were some amazing entries. Several people suggested naming the cottages after the Group of Seven after enjoying learning about them in our art classes this past summer. Other names were fun and concentrated on our various animal friends we have here. Certain names were so sweet and made the decision difficult. Some awesome entries included ‘Loon’s Lullaby’, ‘Dragonfly Den’ and ‘Chipmunk Hollow’.
The final decision has been made. Our cottages have officially been renamed. We have selected the theme of naming the cottages after a selection of paintings by the Group of Seven. We want to congratulate Jaymes, Mitch and Sarah Galbraith for their thoughtful entry as it was their entry which inspired us for the cottage names.
