Change of Pace Day & Christmas

So to switch up the pace on our beautiful campus, we occasionally have "Change of Pace" days or special topic days. Last Tuesday we had our first one of the year and it was quite enjoyable!

The theme was sustainability and the environment so we heard presentations from BC Hydro, the water supplier, and our natural gas supplier. In addition we had group discussions about several issues. I participated in the renewable energy resource one. We also had a garbage audit in each house and separated everything that could have been recycled, this being a bit of a messy endeavor. In the afternoon, we created promise flags inspired by prayer flags and wrote down a pledge. Those flags are now fluttering beautifully in the wind, taking our words with them.
In other news, McL's dayroom is looking flashy and awesome with all our Christmas decorations up. It was a great bonding experience and I'm looking forward to our house breakfast, house dinner, and cookie making.

Three girls' rooms in McL received a wonderful surprise yesterday. We were all sent little Christmas presents and cards from the Zonta Club in Washington State. Everything was personalized and ever so sweet....thank you Zonta club! You definitely brought some huge smiles to our faces!

Holiday smiles to you all,

PS: Happy belated 16th birthday to my awesome brother, Danny.
