Mammoth Cave

We took a little trip again this year before Thanksgiving.  This year, we hit up Mammoth Cave National Park in Kentucky.  I was a little concerned about the weather since we were heading north, so we took the easy route and stayed in a hotel.  I’m glad we did because it was very cold that week!  We had a great time though, and I was glad to have some outdoor time.  If you ask the girls what the best part of the trip was, they will tell you that it was the hotel pool.  Oh well – you win some and you lose some.












We saw tons of wildlife during those few days.  It was quiet and peaceful since no one else was there.  The girls were a little nervous of the cave, and I was a little concerned that I was going to have to walk back up the 500+ stairs to get out, but no worries.  We all survived.  One more national park to check off my list!

Ellie’s Thanksgiving Program 2015

Ellie was a Native American for her Thanksgiving program this year.  She had to memorize 2 lines, and she did a great job.  She sang many songs and waited patiently for her part.  Afterwards, we all joined her in the Kindergarten Thanksgiving Feast!

One of the reasons that fall is so busy is that this little nut has a birthday!


She’s not so little anymore though.  For some reason I think that being 8 years old is this magic number when she can start doing things on her own. I can remember being 8, so maybe I’m remembering what I did.  Either way, we are here.

She’s creative, fun, and thoughtful, and I can’t wait to see what she’ll accomplish this year.


I hate to ask, but

Is there anyone out there who is not selling Innisbrook wrapping paper this year?  If you would like to buy something to support Prince of Peace school, please check out all they have to offer. You can order online, or send me your order.  Thanks!!
