School. It’s been a very exciting week of school. On Tuesday Anna’s class had a field trip to the Youth Science Institute where they learned even more about dinosaurs, did “fossil prints” and dug for dinosaur bones. On Friday her school celebrated its 50th anniversary with a walkathon. Anna loved every minute of these special events – she loves everything about school except morning assembly
Afterschool. My main goal for April is for us to spend as much time outside as possible and to become part of our “playborhood”. It’s working – every time Anna goes outside, she runs into a group of kids of various ages and disappears with them for a couple of hours. We still managed to get a little bit of afterschool done – we learned more about Uzbekistan.
Places we are going. Last Sunday Anna went to a birthday party in a park with a Mad Science show. This was her first Mad Science birthday party (they are not too uncommon here), and she told birthday’s Mom later that it was the best birthday party ever. She spent most of the show – mouth open, soaking it in. In the end everyone got to make slime and take it home.
Quote of the week: Mama, I love you so much. I miss you when you are not with me. I cannot bear the thought of being away from you… unless I am busy doing something fun, of course!
