Eagle Bluff!

So this morning, one of two groups of 6th graders at my school left for Eagle Bluff. I was just thinking about how I'm going to remember that experience for the rest of my life, and I thought I'd share it with you.  I had such a great time at Eagle Bluff, and I'm going to have the friends I made and the memories forever. I was in a group with a bunch of people who I didn't really know. There was one girl who I sort of knew, but I hadn't ever really talked to her. Like, ever. But we ended up next to each other one day(we had to sit upstairs and wait for the rest of our group each day),and we just started talking.  I found out that she loved Harry Potter when we did the ropes course (Guys, it was on the edge of a cliff.  It was AWESOME.), and someone said we should name our carabiners, because you had to ask your partner if you could move it before you did, and she named her carabiners Fred and George Weasley.  (I named mine Hedwig and Pig. (Short for Pigwidgeon, obviously.))  We became really good friends, at least for that week.  We don't specifically hang out, but we do know each other pretty well now, and I'll still say hi to her in the hallway and whatever.
Here's what I did at Eagle Bluff that I'll remember for the rest of my life:

  • I went through a ropes course that was 20 feet off the ground, but it looked and felt like it was 100 feet, because it was on the edge of a cliff. (and there was an epic zipline at the end.)
  • I shot an arrow at Voldemort's face, because the instructor told us we couldn't make a target that was a human, "except for Voldemort."  It was great.
  • We did archery, and then applied SCIENCE to said archery.  (Voldemort archery was included in this.)
  • I almost won the award for best bedhead.  But I'm not bitter.
  • I went rock climbing!  (Not for the first time) (It was still awesome though)
  • We went on a very long hike through the forest and then sat very quietly and still on benches for fifteen minutes.  AND THEN BIRDS CAME AND ATE BIRDSEED OUT OF MY HAND.  It was magical.  (no, seriously.)
I think might be able to find some pictures of Eagle Bluff from last year. *digs out yearbook*  *takes crappy photos of the page*  Here you go!
 A bunch of my friends are here!
Hey look it's the back of my head!  Rock climbing!
