In our lives. The highlight of this week was having papa back! Anna really missed him and was delighted when he arrived on Wednesday. In school they were focusing on 100 (100 Days of School celebration is tomorrow), friendship, and weather (for Groundhog day). We also managed to stay on track with our gymnastics and Russian lessons. Anna is one busy kid!
Afterschool. Between a “real” afterschool program in YMCA and other extracurricular activities we didn’t have much time, but we still tried a couple of science experiments on hearing. I plan a separate post on that. Anna is also working on her Valentines for her classmates. She usually manages 2 Valentines per night – at the moment 8 are done, 16 more to go.
Places we are going. The weather has been wonderful, so we are trying to spend some time outside. I am glad that outside time is built into Anna’s afterschool program when she stays in Y and that she is learning a lot of group games there. Last Sunday we went to a park with a water feature – always a popular place to go. I was actually surprised when Anna was done rather quickly with water play – I guess she didn’t find a worthy playmate, since most of other kids were much younger and, strangely, didn’t care to be bossed around.
- Quote of the week.
- Anna: Mama, I told J that he is my best friend, and he said, “I know”.
- Me: How do you think he knows?
- Anna: Because I also kissed him.
