Stef's new camera

I promised Stefanie that if she was cooperative with her piano lessons all summer (at 8:45 am!) I would get her a digital camera. Today was the day and here are a few of her pictures. I found the camera she wanted on half price sale at target and looking at it now I think it is a nicer one than the one I have. I may need to borrow it. I also need to figure out how to set the date!

new haircuts!

Stefanie has been bugging me all summer to let her cut her hair short for 'locks of love'. After her best buddy came home from vacation with a short 'do I knew I was fighting a losing battle. So-- here is picture of the new Stef after getting 8 inches cut off. It sure will be a lot easier to do in the morning! After seeing Stefanie's haircut Jena agree to go a little shorter too.

"I don't like camp"

Here is a picture of Jena and friends. You can see just how much she isn't liking camp.

Happy Campers!

Both girls are going to the JCC camp this summer. It is 'big girl' camp- they take the bus, play all day and swim twice. Jena quickly figured out that camp means all day away from mommy and no nap. She starts each morning saying she doesn't want to go but gets off the bus with a big smile and excitedly tells me all about her day. She is now swimming underwater all by herself. Stef went to camp last year and is having a blast. She loves learning the latest songs and fashion trends from her teenage counselors. This summer she has mastered diving and is working on a "flip". She has been a great big sister and takes her responsibility very seriously. Jena sleeps on the bus on the way home but Stef tells me that is OK because she puts her arm around her so Jena doesn't fall off the seat.Before you think Stef is all sweetness, in the next breath she complains that she ALWAYS has to sit with Jena. Ahh- sisterly love.
