School Again, School Again

School Again, School Again

Hi ya’ll. Kaitlyn here. Yesterday was our first day of school.

school!

Sunday evening, I realized that day was the last day of summer! (I know it looks like the after noon but it is Monday evening but let’s just pretend I took it on Sunday.)

This is Natalie, McKenna, Lily and I in our ‘study hall’. Natalie teaches us science, history, and math. (Sorry I didn’t get the book cover!) Next year, I will be old enough to be a teacher.

McKenna’s Camping Trip

Hi! It’s McKenna. It’s nice to be back home, after a whole weekend of camping with Mom and her friend Miss Amy. Anything my mom writes is in bold.

Day One
Day One

That’s me and Josefina. I was so excited to meet her. Kaitlyn always told me about her, and she was right.

We went on a hike, which Josefina doesn’t usually get since she doesn’t live near a forest.

I fell down and broke my leg. We drove to the hospital.

In the hospital there was a soda machine. After I got my cast, I was very thirsty. The soda machine was very mean. GIVE ME SPRITE!

gymnastics

I taught Josefina to the best of my ability gymnastics, even with my cast.

We took a  short hike. I forgot the camera the rest of the day, so I don’t have very many pictures.

That day was the last day, today, Sunday.

We climbed a mountain!

Be honest.

Okay, so what if it was made of gravel and only a few yards high? And Mom helped me a little.

A little?

Okay, a lot.

Better.

After climbing that mountain, we took a shower/bath.

After we packed up our campsite, we went to the Recycled Tire Playground.

Lily the Spy

Lily the Spy

Hi  guys! Lily here. Natalie and I have been checking out the stuff for the camping trip. I sent Natalie to look at the food. Natalie, what kind of food is there?

spyN

Well, there are s’mores, sandwiches, cereal, granola bars, chips, and all kinds of delicious goodies. I can’t wait!

After all that spying, the girls and  I decided to get some extra beauty sleep.

But, our joy was short lived, for soon after, Mom woke us up. Not to leave, but to tell us some horrible news: she was only brining one doll! I was not going to be left put on the camping trip.

 

I, Lily the spy, am going to try everyones technique to get ahead.

Saige thought since she was the youngest she would automaticly be chosen. She spent her time getting ready to impress Rapunzel and Josefina. She might get it, but not if I can help it.

Natalie was making everyone pretty. That way, if Mom noticed, she would be picked. That will not work.
I tried sports. I got frustrated.

And I got ready to impress Josefina and Rapunzel, since I was sure to get the spot. I also dolled up Natalie.

In the end, Mom knew we were trying to get the spot. So, she chose McKenna. I was upset, after we all tried so hard to impress Mom! Maybe that’s why McKenna was chosen. McKenna,  how did you do that?

Well, I knew Mom would chose one of us not just because we were trying to impress her.

I guess McKenna chose the right technique. I guess it was fair. Well, I gotta go now. Lily signing out!

Dolls of the World

Dolls of the World

My blog has been kind of hard to take care of. So, I’m changing the theme: Dolls. I’m deleting all my old post in a few weeks. I have currently six dolls, and four of them are American Girl. So let me introduce you to them.

Kaitlyn
Kaitlyn

Hi! I’m Kaitlyn, Mom’s first American Girl Doll. But sometimes my mom and sisters call me Kate or Katie.  As you can see, I’m getting ready for school on Monday. We all want more summer! But the good news is we’re going camping with Mom’s friends this weekend. Cool, huh?

Natalie
Natalie

Hi, I’m Natalie, or Nat. I was Mom’s first doll. I am a little old-fashioned sometimes, but I love my sisters. I am also a bookworm. I especially like the American Girl doll books, even though I am not an American Girl myself. I also do doll beauty. Oh, and I can’t wait to go camping with Josefina and maybe even Rapunzel!

McKenna
McKenna

 Hi ya’ll. I’m McKenna. I love gymnastics. I also like reading books with Nat sometimes. I even wrote a few books. Well, actually they were written about me by Mary Casanova. I’ve grown up a bit since then though. I also like camping like I did with Josie, my former tutor (not my mom) ,especially like we are this weekend. We’re also going to Massanutten Water Park in a few weeks. We are always on the go.

Saige
Saige

I’m Saige, the youngest of the dolls. I am very artsy. I, like McKenna, had a book written about me, except mine was written by Jessie Haas. (We both won the doll of the year award.) I also like to ride Georgia and Picasso. We also have our old horse- but I think Felicity wants to tell you about that. Here’s Lily.

Lily is a little late today. We’ll talk to her later.

Hey, why does Saige get to sit on the table?

She always gets away with everything.

Now Felicity, McKenna, she doesn’t. We’ll talk about it later.

Felicity
Felicity

Hi guys. I’m Felicity. And this is our horse, Chestnut. I love to sew my own clothes. I even made us all costumes for the Colonial Celebration last year. I am also our vacation planner. I am planning our doll schedule for our camping trip. We’re all excited.

Ok guys. Lily’s here.

Finally.

Saige, be nice.

Sorry.

 

Lily

Hi guys! Sorry I’m late I just saw this really pretty sunset and I had to take a picture of it. I am the family photographer you know. I also love to write and I even took all of the pictures except for mine of course. And of course I’m always late- and very, very talkative. I am the only Journey Girl here. Well, I gotta go now. Bye!
