I've said it before and will probably be moved to say it again before I go to sleep tonight, but we have the best parents in our Kanakuk family! You send your kids to Kanakuk, you trust us to protect them, endorse the values of your family, and show them the love of Christ. We enjoy the opportunity and often pinch ourselves to make sure it's all real. And then sometimes we hear from you and just laugh. This is an email from a Kamp family and my favorite response to all this flu news:
Thank you for your rational, professional approach to this situation.
As a physician's family, we urge our children to keep their fingers out of their noses and mouths unless they are freshly washed or have a tissue. Although fingers are really handy tools ,it is medically prudent to strive to avoid "planting" things. Perhaps counselors can lend a voice to breaking nail-biting and nasal-mining habits as part of your "keep your body ready for action" health move. Things seem to "take" when a counselor introduced a concept parents have already "planted."
Thank you guys for all you do!
WEll written and great suggestion and it definitely got passed on to all our Directors. Next we can work on getting all our children to change their socks!
It sure is great being on the same team with all of you. Have a great rest of your Saturday!
