K-Kountry Pool Deck

Monday, October 26, 2009

Well, not only have the leaves been falling this fall around K-Kountry, but the concrete pool deck around the K-Kountry pool is falling as construction crews have been hard at work replacing the deck.  It has created quite a mess inside the gates of K-Kountry.  Here are a few pictures of the project in progress.  Looks a little different huh?

Back From Texas

Wednesday, October 21, 2009

After hundreds of miles on the road and way too many BBQ meals, we are back from Texas.  It was a lot fun to see so many K-Kountry kampers, parents, and staff in the great state of Texas.  We even made a stop in College Station for a quick lunch on our way back from Houston. 

We did a poor job of documenting our time on the road with pictures, but here is at least one picture of the K-Kountry crew from the Texas/Oklahoma Staff Reunion.
