Grammie Camp with Group 3, The Babes

This group of three girls is so much fun! They are all artistic, responsible, creative and love each other!

Claire, Eliza and Hazel are getting old enough to be quite incredible with music, art and gymnastics and know how to have fun!


We had a positively magical evening together!  After our scripture event and our happys and sads for the year, Josh joined us. He is a genius when it comes to the universe, star gazing and knowing so much about the cosmos! 

First he gave us an astonishing lesson on the computer about the stars and space. The numbers and scope is beyond belief. The girls were wowed!

This guy was born to teach! He had them in the palm of his hand!  And the best part is that you can tell how much he loves teaching…and the kids!


We sat out on the deck at the Lighthouse that night on a perfect black night with no moon and were in awe as he pointed out all the constellations with his amazing laser pointer. Cuddled up in a big down comforter, it was a night that none of us will ever forget!

The next morning we listened to the fun music that they had been assigned which was Carnival of the Animals by Saint-Saens. We had so much fun listening to this wonderful collection together. It was written to provide a little fun for Saint-Saens’ serious students. The songs are delightful! Ask them about the Elephant, the Swan, the Aquarium and they’ll tell you some pretty cool stuff!

From there we went right on to our own talent show. Hazel played beautiful music on the piano including an original piece that is incredible, Eliza did a lovely violin solo from her Suzuki repertoire and then we had a great time playing one together. So fun! Claire demonstrated her amazing gymnastics abilities on the lawn. That girl is like an elastic!  Remarkable!

Unfortunately we have this well-recorded….on video, which I don’t know how to insert! You’ll just have to take my word for it.

Our work project was combined this year with our ancestor stories as these girls completed the painstaking project of re-labeling the ancestor tree and putting current pictures on the branches of all the new kids on the tree since we last updated. It was fun and I think they learned some good stories about their ancestors in the process!


We ended with having a good time with a fashion book for each of them that Aniston has loved and thought they would enjoy. They had a great time with their incredible design abilities!

Thanks for sending me this picture Eliza, but I don’t expect to see you in these particular clothes below any time soon Smile


How I love these girls. They are a pure delight! And thanks to Josh for adding so much to our Grammie Camps this year!
