Mommy Camp 2019

Last week we had Mommy Camp! We had lots of fun.

The kids had to leave very early. Daddy woke me up when it was still dark. Mark kissed me goodbye and went to work. Then Daddy and the kids left.

Mommy really wanted me to go back to sleep. But I did not go to sleep, I was hungry so I ate a fresh cinnamon roll with maple frosting. That woke me up!

We painted our door sign and then we went to my dentist appointment. After the dentist, Mommy treated me to chocolate croissant and a smoothie for my “second breakfast” or early lunch.

We went to Hobby Lobby to find some art ideas. We did find some water balloons to play with later. Then Mommy taught me to make bread and we painted. Then Mark came home and I attacked him with a Nerf gun.

We took a bike ride before dinner and then Mark had fun showing off for me.

It was a fun first day!

P.S. I did not go to bed early 🙂


“SourApples” with Coaches “Bob Larry” and “Jo” (My team came up with the names 🙂 )

Soccer this year went very quickly. My team was a lot of fun and teased the coaches a lot. We worked hard together and had lots of fun!

I played goalie for a few games. It was fun, but I usually played defense. Sometimes it was boring, because the ball never got past the mid point!

I played in my first tournament. We tried hard. The winning team won by one point.

Momma said we did very well and that she would love to us play again when both teams are rested. Because of the way tournaments are, our team played three games in a row, while the other team had a break after two games. She does not know if my team would win, but she said it would be a very exciting game!

Baking Cookies

Today I wanted to make cookies. Momma said I could learn to make peanut butter chocolate chip cookies. Andrea watched me, but I made them all by myself. I even got to open the stove and check the cookies. I put some of the cookies in, and learned how to take them out carefully. I did not want to get burnt!

Here is the recipe I used, two bite chocolate chip cookies. I just used mini chocolate chips and Reece’s mini pieces instead of the chocolate chips.


My first soccer game was last night. I started off by playing goalie. I did perfect! The ball never came across the line. Because everyone was on the other team’s side most of the time. When it did come to my side, it never got close to my box.

My coaches are Bob Larry (Audrey) and Jo (Andrea). When Audrey asked her name, the girls named her Bob and she responded “yeah, sure”. Then she said Andrea was “Jo”. So that is their names.

My team is called “Bob Larry and the Jet Sour Apples”. The sponsor is “Jeg” and we thought it sounded like “jet”, and we all have bright yellow shirts, like sour apples!

I also played defender. I learned how to stay in my position last year. The other girls will learn this year, hopefully. I had one really good save, I kicked the ball HARD!

We won 5-0. If you want to come to any of my games, here is my schedule.
