Overall, I took classes like staff 101 that really became steves 101, poi 101 for 30 minutes, mandala coloring (got a ton of ideas for 4-H camp next year), henna 101 and 102, fans, fans, and more fans. One flow wand class that I think I eventually wandered off from. Originally I wasn't going to do henna 101 but after my kids class kinda migrated, I didn't feel like standing. Yes, my kids class was a kids class for 10 minutes, then a young adult beginner waist/chest hooping class and then a kid for another minute and then BALLOOOOOOONS kinda stole the next 30 minutes. So I meandered to henna 101. I am so glad about that! I had a henna kit years ago and I am so thankful that it didn't have anything super scar inducing after hearing about the dangerous of not mixing your own henna. I bought a few cones from Melissa and later let her henna me. It was great to be able to ask more questions like that. I have gotten some henna from artistic adornments and more on the way from mehndi.com.
During the firewalk, Christine helped us with a fertility dance for my friend, Jacki, who is trying to conceive. She got a little fire kiss. I walked twice. During some of the pre-walk, I was like cheeeeeer for everyone! And later mini dance party with Angela. The energy was amazing.
Unfortunately, I was unable to perform. But I keep telling myself there must be a reason for this! I loved the variety of classes and there was always something that I could take if I changed my mind about it. Although I noticed there was no short string flow wand class which a lot of people wanted to try and there was a kid attempting to follow the long string class. Eventually I stopped and helped her out for a bit.
I did buy new techy fire fans and they are SO wonderful. I so recommend them. They are from Forged Creations. They are the bomb dot com. Even when they are lit, they aren't wobble. It's heaven! Speaking of fire, I wasn't exactly thrilled with the circle. Although the volunteers that are doing the fire circle should NOT be smoking. Yes, that totally happened while I have a white gassed fire hoop. I was like, "I'm going to step way over here...." Either way, every time I hit the fire circle, there was way long line or they'd tell you to gas up when a person LEFT the circle to where it was empty. I think if we have the numbers we have this year, the fire circle might need to be extended. And I totally saw a kid legit gas up in the middle of the day cause "his friend was going to burn his poi later." I still don't understand that mad science.

As soon as I left Sunday, I had to start getting ready for 4-H Camp. And I was so dead tired that I just half assed it. But it was worth. I love Playthink so much and I hope I can share it with my kids one day.
