"the call" Aug 3 2006

I can't believe that it has been four years since we first got a look at Jena's picture. Jena is older now than Stefanie was then. I remember looking at all her referral pictures and thinking that she really needed a smile on her face. Now, as I looked thru pictures to find ones to post, I can't find one where she isn't smiling. She is excited to be starting school and taking the bus with her big sister (big sister not quite as excited to have her on the bus). She continues to love sports of all kinds and keep me informed of the results of any professional philly team that played the night before. She still looks at every day as a party and every glass as half full. Can't imagine how empty our house would have been without her. And yes, there are no training wheels on that bike!

summertime fun

we had a GREAT weekend, starting with a trip to BJ and Olivia's and finishing up with Dutch Wonderland with Rafi. Hot hot weather made it a perfect time for swimming in BJs pool and splashing in the water park.

July already?

seems like the summer is flying by! Both girls are loving camp. They come home dirty and exhausted. Stefanie spent last week at Bethany Beach,DE with her china sister Olivia and had a blast. Even though Olivia only lives in Harrisburg we don't get to see her very much so when her mom invited Stef for the week we thought we would give it a try. I was a little worried Stefanie might get homesick but boy was I wrong- turns out Stef had so much fun she didn't feel the need to call her mother AT ALL. I had one message from her the whole week that simply said "hi mom- I am having fun'. Jena was not happy to be going to camp without her big sister, even after I told her that when Stefanie was 5 she didn't have a big sister to take her to camp! We still have our beach house vacation in Aug to look forward to.
