Last night, a few of us girls decided to go on a camp out.
Grace set up the faux fire to set the mood, and with the flick of a switch, and a turn of the lights, Kate’s room was turned into a campsite.
Madison and Antonia immediately went to sleep, and Phoebe and Grace talked awhile. But within minutes, all of them were asleep. An hour later, Kate walked into the room, flicking on the lights, to find Grace, Phoebe, Antonia, and Madison fast asleep. She turned off the fire, put everything away, and put the girls to bed.
“Sleep tight, my little campers,” She whispered.
Antonia and Marigold decided to sneak out of the house today and play with Kate’s karaoke machine that she got for Christmas.
They’re jamming to they’re favorite song, Jenny Jenkins

♫♪♫♪♫♪ Use-a-cause-a roll-a-find-me roll, Jenny Jenkins roll! ♫♪♫♪♫♪
Miss Pinrose decided that we girls needed a bath today, and asked Phoebe to fill the tub.
Miss Pinrose walked over. “Grace!” She exclaimed. “What happened? Where’s Phoebe?”
Grace simply shrugged.
Until next time!
…Has officially opened! To start the day, Miss Pinrose, our teacher and principal, explained some of the classes, and sent us off.
After class was dismissed, Miss Pinrose decided we should take class photos…
Our new school is getting along great! Thanks for coming along on our first day!
Until next time,
The Westview Hittys
“I think we’d better come up with a New Year’s Resolution. After all, it’s already January 8th of 2013.” Grace was determined to find a way for her family to do better this year.
“Any ideas?” She asked, tapping her foot. Phoebe went first.
“We should all go on a dance-a-thon, instructed by me!” Amy said excitedly.
Grace pushed a lock of hair behind her ear. These ideas are okay, Grace thought, but they’re centered around themselves. Grace sighed again aloud. I suppose I could see what everyone else has in mind, she thought.
“Ruthie?” She asked aloud. Ruthie immediately went to a nearby lap harp. “I think we should all take harp lessons!” She squealed in her shrill voice.
Suddenly, Phoebe shouted, “No! My idea is better!”
Grace glared at Phoebe sourly. “No, mine is!” She shot back.
Then, the others rung in with their opinions. Phoebe was about to throw fists when a powerful voice pierced the air. “QUIET!!!!”
All the girls turned to the voice to find Miss Pinrose. None of them could explain how or why she’d appeared to them so suddenly, but they turned their attention to her.
“WHAT is going on?!” Miss Pinrose cried.
Amy, quite afraid, timidly crept up and explained that no one could agree on a New Year’s Resolution.
Miss Pinrose smiled kindly. “Is that all?” She asked. “That’s no reason to throw punched, don’t you agree, Phoebe?”
Phoebe smiled weakly, quite ashamed. “Sorry, Ma’am,” she replied softly.
Miss Pinrose nodded, accepting the apology. “I have my own idea for a resolution,” Miss Pinrose continued. All ears turned to her. Miss Pinrose was pleased to receive the full attention of everyone, and continued. “What if, to benefit everyone, we started a school for all of the young ladies of our house. There’d be music and dance lessons, gymnastics, sewing, art, and perhaps some cooking and table manners lessons?”
We’re sorry to have left for some time, but with such a big family, we’ve practically no time for blogging! Just when we thought it could get no bigger, two more members join our family. Some time ago, a nearby orphanage closed down, leaving many orphans unadopted. We were privileged to bring two of those poor children home with us, while Hitty Ann and her friends adopted three. And we introduce, Amy and Marigold (or Goldie)!
