Ritz Summer Camp 2009

Wow! Has Shayla really attended nearly twice as many Ritz Summer Youth Theatre Camps as Christi ever did? Hmmmmm. Christi (2004-2006 = 3 awesome summer camp experiences), Shayla (2005-2009 = 5 wonderful weeks of summer camp at the Ritz Theatre) It's so hard to believe. It seemed like Ritz Camp was always "Christi's Thing". At first, Shayla was too little to go, but when she started it she loved it too. I wonder what part Christi would have had in this year's play "Pinocchio". (Pic 2006, Seascout Christi)Shayla (Toto, dog, 2008)

Shay with State Representative Jeff Wagner. Friday night we had State Representative Jeff Wagner and his beautiful wife, Carla, over for dinner. Then we all went to the show together. They are such a sweet family! We are very blessed to call them friends. I don't know how Jeff ever mustered up the courage to read for us at Christi's funeral mass, but thankfully he did - and he did a great job.

I sure wish Ohio wasn't so far from south Florida! I'd love to see Shayla perform! I'm sure it's always a fun experience! I'm so glad she's loving Ritz Camp. We can only imagine the great times she and Christi would've had there together, if Christi was still here. {sigh}

Hey, tell your good friend to SAVE THE LIBRARIES in Strickland's new budget proposal. Strickland has proposed to cut 50% more out of the libraries' budget. Also hidden under his slot machine proposal is child care programs too.
