I know today is supposed to be a regular update, but something popped up during the week. I’ve been working at a local school camp this last week, and although I was prepared and had enough strips ready to see the comic through until I returned home, things slightly changed while I was there. On Wednesday the camp learned a teacher had pulled out of this week’s camp program (something about only getting paid a regular wage instead of over time…) so they asked if I would come back this week again. Being a relief teacher at the moment, and needing the money, and also knowing just how outrageously good fun school camps are, I said yes.
Which means that this weekend has been spent catching up on sleep, hoping my calves and feet loosen up again after a week of hikes and pacing up and down the boys’ dormitory corridor each evening and morning, and washing and drying all of last week’s clothes and putting them straight back into the bag for Monday.
So, unfortunately, I haven’t the time to prepare any strips for this week including today’s update. I could probably throw one together this afternoon, but I just don’t think my head will be in the right awake frame of mind to do it suitable justice. So School Spirit will be on a minor hiatus of a week until I get back, and I’ll do my best to catch the missing strips up again as promptly as possible.
If you’re interested in some of the awesome that was last week’s camp, I’m working on popping something into the blog linked above the strip soon. I have a great photo on the lake in the canoe with a misty bush hill backdrop that is most likely to be the photo I use. Because it was just so peaceful and brilliant sitting out there with a kid who could paddle and also talked about interesting things!
