Fishing and a Sleepover

gracieOn Saturday we went to a fishing contest. We went there with Brooke and her family. I caught 2 fish. One weighed 12 5/8 ounces! Brooke caught 4, Whitney caught 3 and the boys caught rocks. I won a prize. It was a giant cookie cake. We got free T-shirts and fishing rods. We had heaps of fun.

Then we went to the church to play wiffleball. It is like baseball but it’s inside. We had lunch at the Church and then we danced in the dancing room. It has a huge mirror and me and Brooke made up some dances.

Then we went to our condo. Brooke came for a sleepover! We played with her American girl dolls.
Then we watched an American Girl movie called “Chrissa” It was very good. We lay in bed, eating
candy and watching the movie. We also had a jacuzzi in Mum and Dads bathroom.
We got to sleep at 10pm! It was the best day.

How important is School really?

kathy-2
Well of course its important!
Its a bit of a dumb question really, but to be honest this year I have not been too worried about the kids learning their abc’s but more what they can learn from the experiences we have had.
Now before all the teachers out there write to me expressing their views on how important school is, I agree with you totally and we have been teaching them their abc’s as well as math, and the general subjects you learn at school. We have invested in some great (big) books that will give the kids the curriculum they need for the year we are away but this has not been our main focus.

Action Jackson does it again!

kathy-2What would a family adventure be without a trip to the Hospital?
Answer: A good one!
That may be true, but then it would hardly be an adventure would it?
So to make our adventure this year complete Jackson thought he would give us a glimpse into the American Health System! Continue reading Action Jackson does it again!
