School's Out Camping Trip

On the last day of school, Mama, Daddy, and I went on a camping trip to Amicalola Falls State Park in North Georgia. We had a great time hiking (I LOVE maps!) and seeing the beautiful falls. One reason we decided to go back (went went when I was really little and of course I don't remember it!) is that ever since going to see the movie "UP" I have wanted to visit a waterfull :) It was very exciting (I pretended I was Russell the Wilderness Adventurer. We went into Ellijay, GA one day and I discovered that I love antique stores (or maybe it was just that I was pretty successful finding some old Star Wars memorabilia!)We climbed the steps at the Falls which totaled over 1,200 - and I climbed every single one of them!!!! Oh, and we slept in a tent on this trip since it was way up in the mountains - I loved it and Mama said she will do it again - in about a year ;)

A giant pancake for lunch in Ellijay, GA!


Mama and I enjoy going with Daddy on his UGA trips, and we enjoyed going with him to Clemson, SC. There are tigers everywhere on campus! We ate outside at a Greek restaurant (I had a hamburger!) and I enjoyed running around on this beaautiful lawn that used to be a parade ground many years ago. There was a really nice military memorial that Mama and Daddy enjoyed seeing (with a life-size soldier made of iron!!!)

RA Recognition

In May, I was very excited to get my RA vest! I really enjoyed being in 1st Grade RA's (Royal Ambassadors) at our church. I especially loved participating in the RA Racers event and going camping at Stone Mountain. We had a lock-in at church one night that was lots of fun, too. My daddy teaches in RA's and we are looking forward to more years doing the activities together!

I congratulated and "high fived" my friend Chad Jones who received the award "RA of the Year" for the first grade class. Way to go, Chad!
