This is going to be a short post, since I am really short on time this week. There are major management changes at work, my boss is leaving, his boss is new to organization, his own boss is leaving – and it’s all happening in the middle of our traditional next year planning cycle. You get the picture – busy, busy, busy. Anna is mostly taking it in stride, since papa plays with her in the afternoons, and I am home to play with her just a little bit, have dinner, give her a bath, read her a book and put her to bed. She got her Kindergarten readiness evaluation from school this week – needless to say, it says that she is perfectly ready to start K.
Arts & Crafts. Anna rarely asks to do crafts, but is open to it when I have everything prepared. This flower vase, however, was an unplanned craft. I had this pretty salt shaker forever and finally gave her some pipecleaners, buttons and challenged her to make something. She really enjoyed making me a “Mother’s Day” bouquet. She also made me a card, and at school they made a body scrub out of brown sugar, cinnamon, vanilla and olive oil. She was very excited to give it to me :)
Science and Social Studies. Anna had a lot of fun with our edible experiment that she organized entirely on her own. She was very fascinated this week with a story of Passover due to a book she read (I will share it tomorrow). And we started on Morocco in geography – I was hoping to do more but we will continue next week. Her favorite part so far was watching Moroccan belly dancing on YouTube and trying her own moves.
