Ballet Day!

After months of anticipation and practice, the day is finally here… Ballet Camp!

Delaney and Kaitlyn couldn’t wait to head off for their first day of spinning and pirouetting and they had the outfits to prove it.

I Know What You Did This Summer

This is the first year Laney has gone to Camp Katan and she loved it.  Among other things, she’s been taking swimming lessons every day as she prepares for the Cape, she attends weekly Taekwondo lessons as she prepares to take over the world and she has Science classes as she prepares to take over the world.

With camp coming to an end, she’s looking for a new year at CJP with all of her friends… as she prepared to take over the world.

Easy Like Saturday Morning

It’s 110 outside, but the Schrager girls are chillin’ out this Saturday morning watching some ‘toons and getting ready for breakfast.



So You Think She Can Dance?

Delaney has spent the last 5 weeks at Camp Katan, but starting next week she’s headed to Ballet Camp and she’s so excited, she just can’t hide it!  She got to pick out her new ballet outfit and slippers today and couldn’t wait to put them on.

She ran around the house on her tippy toes, spinning all over the place showing us her new moves.

Cooler Than The Other Side of the Pillow

It’s been hot here.  Well, not exactly hot.  Incredibly, horribly, oppressively hot.  But even in this record heat, Delaney and Camryn are way cool.  Just check out those awesome matching shirts they’re sporting which were gifts from our neighbors the Moody’s.

You wish you could be this cool.  I know I do.  Have I mentioned it’s hot?

Baby Business – Camryn’s 1 Month Edition

It seems like we blinked and Camryn’s 4 1/2 weeks old.  Then again, we blinked a few times and Laney was 3 years old, so we shouldn’t be that surprized.

Well, we went to the doctor yesterday because Laney needed some new rubber “glubs” and a handful of Dora stickers, so we figured while we were there we’d have someone check under Camryn’s hood.

After a slow start, she’s up to a healthy 10 lbs. 3 oz. (80th percentile) and is now 22 inches long (75th percentile.)  In what may come as a surprise to most people who know the Schragers, her head is average size at 14 1/2 inches (50% percentile.)

Delaney was in the room for the check-up to make sure everything was done to her exacting standards, but chose to leave the room before any immunizations were administered.  I went with her because the nurses don’t like it when she tells them how to do their job and not because I hate seeing my girls cry from their shots.

Next appointment for Camryn is right before we leave for the Cape.  Holy lobster!

Watch Your Back Katy Perry

Laney was pretty wired the night before we went to visit Aunt Laurie.  After Sam took Laney to bed and before I went up to tuck her it, we could hear her downstairs and she belted out her new mega-hit.  I had to go upstairs with a camera to capture some footage whatever future singing realty show she ends up on.


Schragerpalooza 2011 – The Final Chapter… For Now

Schragerpalooza 2011 wasn’t over just yet.  One of the traditions we have anytime Aunt Laurie makes the long trek down from the mountains is breakfast at the Ballantyne Hotel. (It’s so rare that she’s able to partake in “city food” as she calls it, that we like to expose her to as much of it as we can before she disappears back into the wild.)

It was great to see everyone and the girls had a great time.  They can’t wait to destroy the Cape though… you’ve been warned.
