Happy Birthday Stefanie!

when Stefanie calls my cellphone this is her ringtone:

When I see your face
There's not a thing that I would change
Cause you're amazing
Just the way you are
And when you smile,
The whole world stops and stares for awhile
Cause girl you're amazing
Just the way you are

To celebrate her birthday my very grown-up 9 year old took two best friends out to dinner where she ate an entire steak from the adult menu. This year she asked her Zayde for a complete set of the books of the bible in Hebrew/English translation and excitedly told her friends over dinner how beautiful the books were. She asked for a Jellybean Machine from Aunt Sarah and Uncle Dave and an electric guitar from her mother. I think those three presents are an accurate reflection of the wonder that is Stefanie.
Girl, your amazing, just the way you are

stefanie the swimmer

a great end to the swim season as Stefanie swam in 5 races at the championship meet and had 3 top ten finishes. She finished third in butterfly- not bad for the girl who, the first week of practice, told her coaches she didn't know how to do butterfly (because she couldn't do it "perfectly"). Since the meet was in Harrisburg we toped the whole day off with a visit and dinner with BJ and Olivia!Stef is in the green swim cap, in the lane closest to the camera.
