What we did on our summer vacation

Ahh... another summer filled with adventures and fun. This year was exceptional, and we topped it off with a 4-day roadtrip across the states. Since this is Princess Peach's blog, I'll let her write about her favorites later and just post some fun photos for now!

Looking forward to Fifth Grade!

It's been awhile since our last update, but Princess Peach is doing awesome. She has finished fourth grade with the exception of a few math lessons!

She's super excited about this summer and we've planned two trips this year! Our first will take us to the beautiful Tybee Island in Georgia! Everyone is looking forward to sandcastles, dolphins, and warm Atlantic waters! Princess Peach applied for a camp put on by the military and we will know next month if she made it or not. If not, we plan to go visit our wonderful family in New Mexico. Picture deserts and cactus. Yes, there.

I love planning out Princess Peach's homeschooling, and this year is no different. We're going to start the year off with a good review, then jump right into the following subjects:

Math, Science/Health, Language Arts, History & Geography, P.E., Bible, Art, Music, Home Ec., Sewing, Technology, and Spanish! Some are daily, others are once weekly, so we plan to balance our lessons. Friday every week should be Princess Peach's blog day, so hopefully now we're set with a new digital camera, we'll have more to update!

Robots are coming in 2025! Robots are helping us every day. Where are they you might wonder? They are in the kitchen, laundry room and other places. Robot Nao can help you pick up toys and play hide-and-seek and many more activities! Robot Nexi can help a group of people clean up a park or an abandoned lot! Robot RIBA a robot shaped like a teddy bear that works at a hospital can help patient get out of bed and into his or her wheelchair. I love robots!

Eggs for breakfast!

Today I made eggs. They were fun to make too! First we got the ingredients to make scrambled eggs. Then we cracked the eggs into a bowl and mixed them up in a bowl then put some butter in the pan. Then we dumped the eggs in the pan and mixed them all up. Then you add the salt and pepper. Then serve with toast and butter and voila! You have made eggs!

At 4:30p.m. a tornado started behind our backyard. It was scary until I learned that it was going away from us! We even saw it form! It was awesome!

(Mommy Note: We did not take these beautiful photos and should we ever see a tornado THISCLOSE to our home, we'd be hiding! The storm system had just gone beyond our home and we were blue skies and sunshine when this tornado formed about 3 miles from our house! The kids all got to see their first tornado... before they jumped in the tub!)

Winter in the Mushroom Kingdom

We're back! The months between October and now have just been jam PACKED with so much FUN.. and other things.. that we haven't been on to blog much. That's okay, though, because we have a photo packed update!


Princess Peach's Girl Scout troop marched in the Veteran's Day Parade and made a great Thanksgiving feast the following week. The troop had a bake off and.. *drum roll* PRINCESS PEACH WON!!! Her delicious pumpkin pie came in tops over the other desserts and she won a cute, heart-shaped cookie cutter. She was SO happy!


This month was tons of fun. We adventured out in the coooooold weather and decorated cupcakes at Maggie Moo's, went to the Festival of Lights at the botanical gardens, did a lot of great shopping and had our first southern snow! Christmas was great this year and we even stayed up on New Years.

We made lemonade today. We squeeze lemons in to the pitcher then take out the seeds. And then add the sugar and mix it all up. Then we tried it. It was sour. We like lemonade!

Peeling Carrots

Today I peeled carrots. My Daddy helped me peel carrots. He said to hold the carrot at the end and peel away from you so you don't cut yourself. Then you cut off the ends and cut in half two times. Then you serve with a little bit of ranch. It is very good.

Visiting Ohio

We visited Ohio last week. We had to get up early to get ready to go. We got dressed warmly, then we piled into the car. It was chilly outside. So cold that we had to bring blankets to stay warm! And after 8 hours we were there. We stayed in a hotel called La Quinta. We stayed there for a few days. It was fun. Then we went home. I missed Alabama!
