The Day started off dreary and damp, with a game of Handshake murderer to get us moving and laughing. It was especially funny when everyone died right after I shook their hand, even though I was NOT the murderer. Whatever, it was fun.
After the fun and games, it was time to get to work. In the garden. In the rain. It wasn’t terrible, but it was definitely cold, and we all wanted to be done as quickly as possible. Luckily, there wasn’t much to do, just some weeding and maintenance, so we were out of the rain in no time.
After gardening, we headed inside to start blogging. It was a lot of fun, and it was better than being out in the rain.
Lunch came next, and then we started our leadership workshop. A game we started out with had someone blindfolded of a circle, with everyone trying to grab a pair of keys in between the blindfolded persons legs. Then we worked on listening skills, and had an activity where we had to pretend to be bad listeners. It was really hard to pretend to not be listening, and it didn’t feel nice to be distracting and rude.
We ended of the day with a rousing game of Ninja, where the objective is to hit other peoples’ hands, while protecting your own. After some creative positions, and bending into some interesting shapes, then game was over, and thus ended the day.
