School: It’s been a busy week! Anna and her classmates showered their teacher with flowers and gifts for Teacher Appreciation week. On Wednesday her school had an open house to showcase everything the students have been up to this year. Anna’s class had a special “iPad Academy” for parents, and then we were allowed to take a lot of artifacts home including fun writing samples that showed how much she progressed in the past few months.
Afterschool. I’ve been busy-busy at work and was “missing in action” on most days. But Mother’s Day was fun! I got an adorable card from my overexcited child and another one in Russian. Her Russian lessons are going well, and she now asks me more often for Russian words and sentences. Grandparents will be pleased
Places we are going. We finally managed to go to one of Anna’s favorite spots – The Gilroy Gardens. Anna’s best friend’s family came with us, and the kids had a blast. It was a lot of fun for Anna to be a tour guide and take A on all her favorite rides, especially on “sky train”. Luckily, even though A is tall enough to ride more adventurous rides, he had no interest in them – he is almost as cautious as Anna is when it comes to thrills.
- Me (playing a game): Name three differences between boys and girls:
- Anna: Boys are stronger than girls, boys love gross and yucky stuff and boys can go bald, and girls can’t!
