Today I took Melody and Orrin to Phil Foster Park and we spent the day playing at the playground, then we had a picnic, I watched the kids chase the birds and relaxed on the beach. It was a great day.

Melody was so glad to have books back on the boat and she has attacked her reading cards and work “as she calls it” with a vengeance. I encourage it as much as possible. She can read whole sentences now like “The cat sat on the mat, or I was wet, and I am a dog.” She is learning a lot of sight words now.

Soon I will teach her the blends, “ex. ST, CL, CH, TH “ We called my mom and dad tonight and I think she read her sentences to them about 10-15 times.

Barry helped one of our neighbors today. His name is TJ. He has been sailing the Bahamas for a couple years. He doesn’t have a car to get around in so Barry drove him around to different places. Barry also got a P.O. Box for us.

About Trisha Perkins

Hi, my name is Trisha Perkins. I was born in St. George Ut, and raised in many different places. California, Texas, Panama, North Carolina, and Utah have all been home for me. My family moved back to St. George Ut after my father left the army. I was home schooled most of my school years, then enrolled for long distance schooling from an accredited high school. I taught gymnastics and swimming for 3 years. Then I realized I wanted to learn more about children, because I didn't know enough about them and I wanted to be prepared for motherhood. I taught montessori preschool for one year, then I went to a summer camp in New Mexico to teach horse back riding. Now I have to back up a little. A couple of my friends had gone to this same summer camp to teach the year before and one of their friends from camp tagged along with them back to St. George. Here enters the Pioneer. My life would never be the same. I tapped into a soul that I didn't know the voltage of. I met Barry Perkins. He proposed to me while scuba diving off of the Californa coast. We were married in the St. George temple on October 16th 2004. We have always wanted to give our children the best education. Leadership education! We wanted to travel and let them experience different cultures and countries and read great books and be a united family. So here we are starting off on a journey of a lifetime.
