I got these jeans at AG, my absolute favorite place to buy pants. These are The Club fit. They have a bit more of a flare than I'm used to but theyre very cute and fit well. They're a size smaller than I usually wear so I feel skinny, too! They have great cords, I love their Angel fit for school.

The highlight of my summer movie experience however has got to be Mama Mia! It was so much fun I couldnt help but sing along the whole time. Even the second time around it was fabulous. Poor Pierce Brosnan didn't get the best reviews, but he wasn't that bad! People in my theatre the second time were laughing every time he sang. I feel so bad because he did the best he could. He's not a singer and people seem to forget this. Everyone needs to be so multi-talented these days.
Third and FINAL session have finally begun. I'm off to a good start teaching Girl Power and Girls of Yesteryear, both repeats. I hope they can live up to their original classes! There are some BEAUTIFUL girls in my classes. It's unbelieveable.
18 days until Reno with my lovely room mate!

|Your Preppy Name Is...|
But most people know you as Kiki
I thought this was hilarious, not because of the name but because of the website I got it from. I found it on another blog and the comments were wonderful. They were all hating on the names, many of which aren't that strange at all. I know people named Missy, Lulu, Kiki. Kate calls me Cricket, which I read was one of the nickname options. Even some of the last names are familiar. Oh what a big world we live in.
As fabulous a place as camp is, I'm glad it's the weekend!

Steven is a self appointed "party animal". Here is his ME sheet from I am special day.
If you can't read it, it says I am special because I know how to party! He drew a picture of himself dancing with a friend under a disco ball. And yes, he is six years old.

My afternoon class is the cutest bunch of kids! It's called Literacy through Lyrics and is all 1st graders plus Jilly (in the green shirt) who is only going into Kindergarden! We've been singing and reading these part two days and I'm so proud of all of them. The girls are all so beautiful, Gianna and Olivia in particular. Whenever I work with kids I always wonder how they will turn out in 10 years. One of Rod's favorite lunchtime activities is guessing who will "play for his team" in the future. Silly boy!
This morning in Girl Power was spa day! We did face masks in the library bathroom, manicures, makeovers, and hair! The only down part of the day was being responsible for pedicures. I had to give 11 pedicures to gross little feet. They all loved it and were so excited so it was worth it.

Yesterday afternoon I drove up to Colleen's house near Great Barrington for her graduation party. Trisha, Molly, Dennis, and I all made the drive up together and had a blast in the car. We stopped on the way home to take some pictures of trees and cows and raced Cindy and Roger the entire way to Connecticut! We all thought they were going to DIE in a head on collision at one point while passing a car. Top Speed obtained: 90 miles per hour.

In the afternoon I taught a class called Girls of Yesteryear. It was based on the American Girl Dolls series and every day we learned about a new time period. I loved the dolls when I was little and have Kirsten, Samantha, and Josefina, and I still think they're all fabulous. Not only are they great dolls with BEAUTIFUL clothing and accessories, but they teach girls about American history without them noticing. Girls in class were talking about Victory Gardens and the Depression, and some of them are in 3rd grade! They were spitting out facts thanks to their obsession with all things dolls. Here are Emma. K and Julia with their dolls, Felicity and Kit. I have loved every minute of camp so far and I hope second session will be as exciting. I'm teaching Girl Power in the morning with Mary and Literacy Through Lyrics in the afternoon. The second class is for Kindergardeners so I'm so looking forward to working with little kids! It's going to be strange not to work with Elyse anymore. She was the teacher for both of my classes and absolutely fabulous. She was so creative and fun with both the boys and the girls. Here's to you Elyse! Here she is with Sarah M watching the model car show in this afternoon. I'm off to Anna's Bon Voyage party and then to some early fireworks. Happy 4th!
