Happy Mother’s Day! I am going to get this posted quickly and then we are headed to my Mom’s for brunch.

From Kristen L.- Saige (Boston), Kanani (Washington D.C.), and Ivy (Houston) are wearing the newest AGP t-shrirts I have added to the collection.

From Suzanne – Saige gears up for summer camp with some fabulous items from the Doll Diaries Etsy Shop. I bought the doll tent at a thrift store for a few dollars, and the tshirt, backpack, and pin were prizes from Doll Diaries photo contests. Can’t wait to see what fun surprises are in store this year!

From Wendy – Colours of the wind…

From Jenny – Earlier this year, American Girl unveiled new outfits for the Beforever girls! Here’s Kit and her Chicken-Keeping Set, one of my favorites, as it hits close to home for us. We raise Banty Chickens that lay blue eggs! Here’s Kit with one of our favorite little hens. She’s not quite American Girl sized, but she just loves having her picture taken! You can see the full review of Kit’s set plus all the other new ones, too, on our youtube channel https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCzJVx0VxqpCF_muk9uYop_w

From Fawn – When Josey heard that her school’s Social Studies Fair was on May 5 she knew immediately what her topic would be – Cinco de Mayo. In the US Cinco de Mayo is sometimes mistaken for Mexico’s Independence Day which is celebrated on September 16, so this was her opportunity to set things straight about her ancestral country. She dressed in her camisa e falda for her presentation. “Good morning, my name is Josefina Maria Montoya. Cinco de Mayo, which is Spanish for the fifth of May, is a celebration day of national pride which commemorates the Mexican Army’s unlikely victory over French forces at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862. This is important for at least two reasons. First, although considerably outnumbered, the Mexicans defeated a much better equipped French army. Second, since the Battle of Puebla, no country in the Americas has subsequently been invaded by any other European military force.” The judges, impressed by her dressing in character and the fact that she knew her subject well enough not to have to rely on her note cards, awarded her a blue ribbon. Congratulations, Josey! For more information you can visit: www.history.com/topics/holidays/cinco-de-mayo
