Kealoha rides!


I got to play outside today with the big boys who live here and try some of the things that they like to do.  First I got to ride on the dirt bike!



Then I tried the go-kart.


And after all that excitement, some of the girls and I
played in the REAL tree house for a while.


That's Kit, me, Charis and Kaya. What fun we had today!

Love, Kealoha

Kealoha goes on a trip!


Just as soon as I got to Tennessee, AGR and family went on a trip to Indiana! As every good trip should begin, we started with Krispy Kreme:




After a bit of a drive in Tennessee we arrive in Kentucky:




After a few hours in Kentucky, we finally arrived in Indiana!


There are lots of things to see in Indiana, but mainly we saw this:


We went to Indianapolis and got to spend some time at the world famous Indianapolis Motor Speedway:



And of course while we were up north we had to have some White Castles.


I had a fun road trip, but I'm glad to be back in Tennessee where I can get to know this state better!


Love, Kealoha

Kealoha's First Day


I arrived at AmericanGirlRescue yesterday and was so excited to finally see the Girls' House in real life! It's very grand. The 26 other girls who already live here welcomed me warmly.


Look at this girl who lives at AGR. Doesn't she look like me?


That's Lily Flower on the left and me on the right. We could be twins!


I was very tired after my journey from Colorado, so the girls let me sleep in their brand new AG bed from the Wyndham Hotel in Chicago! It's very comfortable (although VERY pink!)

I think I'm going to have fun here in Tennessee!

Love, Kealoha

Maggie Scout


We got a 2001 Kirsten from an AGPlaythings member. She was in pretty rough shape and you can read about that in this post. We got her this week from a neighboring town right here in Tennessee.

Her former home called her Scout. We call her Maggie. So meet Maggie Scout!

Maggie's Makeover


Maggie showed up here as a very mis-handled 2001 Kirsten. Well, she wasn't as messy as she started out when she was first posted on eBay. A different PT member bought her from an eBay seller and tried to get the ink and highlighter off of her. She did a pretty good job, but then decided that she just didn't fit into her collection. That PT member called her "Scout".

We purchased Scout and when she got here, we took her completely apart. I washed her torso and her fluff and laid them out in the sun to dry. I covered the parts on her limbs and face where ink still remained with oxy-10 and laid those out in the sun as well because heat is supposed to help the oxy-10 soak into the vinyl to fade the ink.

Her hair was in great shape already. Just a bit smoky smelling.



I re-strung her limbs, re-stuffed her and fixed her hair. She looks (and smells) so much better!



Our sweet Maggie Scout (a modern girl) feels so much better!

More things for Kaya!


Our sweet Kaya has gotten some new things for her collection. We got her the Tepee; her horse, Steps-High; and her foal, Sparks Flying. Now all we are missing for Kaya's collection is her Jingle Dress (which is retired and very hard to come by!)

UPDATE 8/2008: We have the Jingle Dress! Now we have her complete collection!



Yay for Kaya!
