hi-ho, hi-ho, it's off to camp we go!

Blue Lake Fine Arts Camp, that is. Hannah spent the last 12 days at camp with her best buddy, Madeline.
The kids must choose a 'major' at Blue Lake; Hannah chose to major in art (same as last year) but this year Madeline chose band (she plays flute) over art. Hannah minored in piano and Madeline minored in art. They shared a cabin, about 20X20, with 10 other girls and a counselor. Crowded space, hence the mess.
More mess means more fun, right?
Twelve days is a long time for Pebbles. You can see her here cuddling on Hannah's bed with Kiwi, Hannah's little stuffed kiwi. Poor Pebbles! She misses her human!
Hannah made a few things out of clay:
Her paintings:

And her fibers project that won the 'all-around' award in the fibers medium. She calls it 'Robot.' The award certificate is underneath it.

We listened to Madeline and the concert band play some very wonderful pieces. My favorite was the locomotive piece. Here she is on flute, center blonde.

Since Madeline minored in art, she produced one piece and it was a doll she calls 'My Sister's Doll."
She gave it to her sister, Julia, who was oh-so-happy!
