  1. Lovely Ms. Grace!
    But surely you love your family already? ;-)

  2. I do but I couldn't think of a FINAL thing to add. ;)

  3. Dear Grace,

    I like your list very much! Although, there is one I would disagree with! Coming from my public school PASO ROBLES experience, I would say you would not like to go to public school, even for a day!!! I like homeschool much better!!!

  4. play a round of trivial pursuit with Mr. McBride?

    ...As in, the 8th grade History teacher for PCA?Cause if that's who you mean, I had him too! He was a good teacher, although my favorite was Mr. Duby. ;) What'd you think of them?

  5. Hi, Alisah!

    That's the one. He was always talking about Trivia Pursuit, and if I ever met him in real life I told myself I would challenge him to a game of it. ;)

    My favorite as well, will always be Mr. Duby, though. He was an AWESOME teacher, and I think I have him this year...or the next. :)


  6. Hi Grace,

    I enjoyed reading that list. Some of the things you wrote sounded fun to do.

    When is your birthday? How old will you be turning (if you don't mind me asking)?

    I enjoy reading your blog. I really want to get to know you and someday meet you!
