Apple pie!

Today, I made my very first pie on my own!

I was really bored today, and thought it would be really fun to make a pie. So I did! My parents were going to be gone for the afternoon, so I was on my own. I had made a pie with other people before, but never by myself. I did everything according to the recipe, and it actually turned out great! By the end, I had a very beautiful looking (and tasting!) apple pie, that I shared with everyone at our house. I enjoyed myself a lot, and am thinking pie making may become my new thing!

Do you think I can eat it all in one bite???

The first days of school!

Well, I am back in school now, after an almost 3 month Summer vacation. Ohh...those were the days!

We are done with the first week, and now we really start to learn and write tests. This year, I am in ninth grade, the highest grade in our school! It's so weird to think that I am the oldest in the school! This is my last year in "Zakladni Skola" (Basic school). I have had many great memories in that school. I have been there since second grade!

Every year, my mom has a tradition of taking a picture of us three kids, she has done it since we were little. This year was no exception.

Here are some of our earlier pictures.

Here we are in 2004.
This one's taken in 2005.

Here's 2006.

And this was last year, in 2007!
So, as you can see, we've grown a lot since 2004 (And so has Lily!). It is so fun to look back at each year and remember the great times we've had!
