In which Jakie, Elisha, and Shana wish just a tiny bit that they have FD...

First of all, I apologize for not posting yesterday. I was busy going to Kmart to get more free stuff twice in one day .

As you all know, every summer, Dovi goes to Camp Simcha Special, only the most fun place in the entire world, where every kid is the king of the castle and the coolest kid on earth. He swims, he dances, he pushes Raphi in the pool, and has pajama parties with Ben and Ezra.

It's only the biggest party ever.

He's going in 2 1/2 weeks and cannot wait.

But this summer, another opportunity has come our way. And the way I see it, Dovi's got a really hard life, and the more fun things he can do, the better.

Another group has opened-Kids of Courage-and they were planning on a 1 week camp at the end of August. However, the medical director is concerned about Swine Flu. Quite a few medical camps had swine flu issues this summer and they don't want to have to disappoint.

So, instead of a traditional camp, this year, KOC has decided on a trip.


Yup, Dovi's going to Disney!

Many of you know that we did an amazing, once in a lifetime trip to Disney with Make a Wish in 2006.

Dovi adored it.

As did Elisha, Shana, and Jakie. They are just a teeny, tiny bit jealous. I offered the staff of KOC that they should be counselors-heck, they know about as much about nebulizers, feeding pumps, and oxygen as the best of them.

The staff didn't seem to go for it.

So, just this once, I think that Elisha, Shana, and Jakie think that having FD wouldn't be too bad of an idea.


I don't think so!

Love Disney. Love the picture you have of the kids in the Zurg jail, b/c I have the same picture of my kids there. Hope Dovi has an amazing time. And I'm sure that the triplets will be jealous, but they'll get over it.

I'm glad D gets to go back to see the Mouse - but seriously - if they're so concerned about Swine Flu, why would they take them to a place with MORE people. That doesn't quite make sense.

You and ESJ should become stalkers in big floppy hats and sunglasses and follow them around WDW! I can picture it now :)

Stephanie- They are trying to avoid the bunkhouse aspect of camp. If one person in a bunk gets the flu, then everyone in the bunkhouse is infected. In Florida we will be staying in a hotel with only one camper/counselor per room. (

Yay Disney!!

Ah - that makes sense then. Thanks Raphi!
