Today was consumed with the normal opening convocation including a keynote address on the concept of love. This was followed with a small group meeting (There are about 28 people in each small group and no Lakesider is in the same group as any other Lakesider). After lunch the small groups met again until the start of water day activities. Most of the kids got wet and had a good time playing water related games. After dinner the activity was worship which continued the love theme. That was followed by a variety show in which Max Wilson played the piano and impressed everyone with his rendition of “YMCA”. We were all very proud of him. After the back home group meeting it was lights out at 11:30.
