Mrs Morris in the USA – Part Two

A few weeks ago, I wrote about the first half of my USA trip with Mrs Yollis.

After spending time at Mrs and Mr Yollis’ house and travelling to San Diego for our conference, Nate and I flew to the east coast of the USA. We spent some time in New York and Washington DC. Then we flew back to San Francisco on the west coast before flying home.

We had a fantastic time in the USA! Here are some highlights from the second half of the trip.

  • Visiting the Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, Rockefeller Centre, Central Park, Times Square, 9/11 Memorial, United Nations Headquarters and more in New York.
  • Celebrating 4th July by watching the Macy’s Fireworks with millions of people in New York!
  • Seeing the musical, Jersey Boys, on Broadway.
  • Meeting with blogging buddies.
  • Shopping!
  • Enjoying the warm summer weather – there was a heat wave on the east coast!
  • Visiting lots of museums in Washington DC.
  • Seeing the White House, Capitol Building, Washington Monument, Lincoln Memorial and more in Washington DC.
  • Visiting Alcatraz (an old prison on an island) in San Francisco.
Here are some photos from the second half of my trip.

End Of Term Two – Time For Holidays!

After a busy eleven weeks in 4KM and 4KJ, everyone is looking forward to our two week holiday break!

We have had a terrific Term Two, full of learning and fun. The Tagxedo word cloud below is a snapshot of the last couple of months in 4KM and 4KJ.

Bike Ed has certainly been a highlight of our term. Everyone enjoyed learning about the road rules, practising their riding skills and demonstrating safe riding behaviours out on the road.

Next term will be exciting, as we have our Grade Four camp happening in week three! This will be the first school camp for all students and it will give us a chance to practise our riding skills in the town of Maldon. We are also looking forward to studying The Olympics and Natural Disasters. We can’t wait to share all of our Term Three adventures with you!

Happy holidays!

We’ll be back on Monday 16th July.

Mrs Morris enjoyed spending some time at Mount Martha with her husband, Nate. Mr Limb and some other friends came to visit.

Nate’s family has a beach box which is a great way to spend time at the beach!


Miss Jordan visited her family at Pomonal and enjoyed meeting her parents’ new puppy, Annie. There were lots of Easter treats at the Jordan household!

Happy Easter!

Mrs Morris and Miss Jordan hope all of the 4KM and 4KJ students are enjoying their holidays so far!

It has been terrific to see some students commenting on our blog over the past week, well done!

Here is a fun Easter puzzle for you to try.

Click the play button and time yourself by watching the clock on the left hand side.

The photo in the puzzle is of some of the Easter eggs Miss Jordan received from students last week. It is safe to say that some of the eggs didn’t make the photo as they have already been eaten!

How long did it take you to solve the puzzle?

Do you have a favourite type of chocolate?

Does your family have any special Easter traditions?
