The kids have been home for most of the summer but for a few weeks, I tried to put them in a camp that would break up the routine (and give me a break.) Last week, they did a music camp. It wasn’t called “rock star camp”, but that’s what they all dubbed it.
It was pretty cute. They all formed bands and then did a performance on the last day. Over the course of the week, they grew more and more concerned with their wardrobe choices. India wanted to look “fashion-y” each day, so she took great pains putting together her outfits.
I can’t even with this one:
Kembe was also concerned, and wanted his hair to be EVEN MORE AWESOME, which we achieved with a little two-strand twist-out. Thank you, youtube. (This style looked awesome for one day, and then looked terrible. Anybody know how to get a twist-out to look good for more than a day? Your feedback is welcome.)
Here is Jafta's band:
And India’s band:
And Kembe’s band.
Kembe was the lone boy in an all-girl band. This scenario would have mortified his older brother, but Kembe is a lady’s man and reveled in the attention.
“Rock star camp” was a fun week, and they are all just a bit more motivated with their guitar lessons now.
