Summer Camp, Issy and Emily Style!


All grown up and always good friends, cousins and YaYa sisters (along with Morgan) Issy and Emily have taken on, as camp counselors, a summer camp this year full of arts, crafts, water play, music, snacks and lunch for eight little neighborhood girls that attend!



I was quite impressed this morning when I went to photograph and see for myself what Issy and Emily's summer camp was all about.  Today's theme was HOLIDAYS.  The girls had many listed and had fun activities to celebrate each one...


Looking around the room I found all kinds of projects that had gone on before I arrived, including a ping-pong table full of hand painted pillow cases that were laying out to dry...



Camp looked fun and all the little girls looked so happy, especially when it was announced that it was time for Popsicles!


While the girls were busy playing games, Mama Regas was up stairs preparing lunch ( I saw alphabet shaped french fries being prepared that looked really yummy!), so before I left the campers graciously gathered to pose for a picture (less one camper who had to leave briefly for a doctor's appointment).  Then I slipped out to avoid further interruption.


Everyday this week, from 10:00 o'clock to 2:00, Isabelle and Emily have been working; taking on the full responsibility (except for lunch preparation) of running a day camp for girls.  They faithfully clean up when the day is over and then set up for the next day of camp.  From tuition, the girls planned and bought supplies for each activity and will get a pay check from what is left after expenses.  I saw evidence of some really good book keeping too!  From what I witnessed, I'd say the demand for Issy and Emily's camp week will be high in the coming years.  Congratulations girls on a job well done...

  Wish I could come for "water day" tomorrow!

Those little girls look so sweet and what a summer break for them to have two pre teens that are being examples to look up to.
