Today we celebrate my Grand Royal, Patrice II. She has completed Elementary School and is moving on to Middle School! How time flies. She is my namesake and 10 years old. When she was born, I referred to her as my first “Grand Royal.” I do believe that children are Majestic and grandchildren are royal. Many thanks to her other Grandmother, Grand Queen Beth, who hosted the celebration with a “World Culture” theme. Grand Queen Beth taught World Culture, Geography and Music to Patrice II during the pandemic. Patrice II studied the cultures and prepared cuisines of places such as Japan, Korea, India, Israel, Italy, Spain, Greenland, France, Hong Kong, Turkey and many more. My Princesses daughters Chestna & Ellice and their families attended and Princess Kirsten attended virtually from Tennessee. We enjoyed cuisines represented from all over the world. Scroll down and enjoy. Thanks for hanging out with me and my family.
We had loads of family fun. Chestna and Jim’s children got to spend time with Ellice & Justin’s children. It was great to be with family! We all had so much fun!
Many thanks goes to Grand Queen Beth for hosting the celebration. Kudos to her for spending over 38 weeks assisting my daughter with the curriculum and for teaching Patrice II World Culture, Geography and for teaching Patrice II how to play the ukulele. Because of the family’s international travels, Patrice II was able to experience some of the fashion as well as the cuisine. Great job, Grand Queen Beth!
Many thanks for Princess Kirsten dropping in by way of Tennessee Virtual to wish her niece, Patrice II all of the best for beginning Middle School soon.
Congratulations on completing Elementary School and entering into Middle School, Patrice II. It really does take a village!
To all of our Notes of Inspiration family, thank you so much for hanging out with us. Celebrate your family, have fun, be safe and live out loud! We love you!
