School. Anna’s class was doing a lot of Thanksgiving-related activities. Social studies are done on the first grade level, so she learned a lot about Native Americans and chose an Indian name that cracks me up – Fast Cheetah. They also needed to bring a collection of nature items to school to be traded in Trading Day. It’s not very visible in this picture, but trading day was also a Crazy Hair day – she was wearing a lot of small pigtails, and her hair was sprayed pink – she loved it.
Afterschool. It was a turkey Saturday last week. We made turkey hats and some hand turkeys too. Then I went on a business trip. In my absence Anna made a couple of books in her YMCA book club and painted rocks during a playdate. Once I came back, we returned to our “artist of the month” – Georgia O’Keefe – more on that next week.
Places we are going… Looks a lot like real Venice, doesn’t it? No, not really, the hotel in the background gives it away. I was in Las Vegas for our Sales Kickoff, which meant several days of drinking in the evening and working during the day. It was good to see a lot of people face to face including most of my team. Unfortunately, the schedule didn’t allow to catch any shows – maybe next time. In the meantime Anna went to her usual places – school, gymnastics and playdates. Even though she had fun with papa, she was delighted to have me back
Favorite quote: Mama, you are the best cuddler, but papa is the best tickler. I love it when he holds me down and tickles me all over. But he has to remember not to tickle me in the places where I am ticklish – I only like to be tickled in the places where I am not ticklish.
