Little Wonders' DaysMay5_Superhero

School. It seems that May is a very fun month in Anna’s school. Last week they had a field trip and a walkathon. This week they had a special lesson on reptiles with live snakes, lizards and turtles and a music performance by a local music artist. Anna is still wild about her iPad, and this is what she is mostly talking about when she comes home. She keeps asking for her own iPad or a laptop.


Afterschool. I was down most of the week with a very painful inflammation in my right foot, but I started feeling better yesterday and we got out paints to do a guided painting on the canvas. The canvas painting is not exactly finished yet, but Anna really enjoyed splatter painting. Note to self – splatter painting with acrylics is not the greatest idea – an emergency bath and emergency laundry was needed directly after this activity.


Places we are going. We were hanging out a lot with the family of Anna’s best friend from school. We are hoping that the kids will stay together next year, because they click so well, and they also manage to include A’s little sister in their games. When they were at our place, I set up the melting ice experiment for them. All three kids predicted that the water would overflow when the ice melted. Their explanation of the results – the water must have evaporated! We will definitely repeat this experiment in a cool place Smile


  • Quote of the week: Anna: You know, I would really like to parachute out of an airplane.
  • Me: Why not, but it’s something to do when you are older.
  • Anna: Can we do it for my 7th birthday party? We will jump out of the plane and then go to Pump-It-Up to finish celebrating.

I love the splatter paint picture!

Emma wants an iPad of her own, as well, even though she hasn't seen them being used outside of the Apple store.

iPads and parachute parties - why not! :) Hope your feeling 100% again.

I'm sorry you weren't feeling well...hope you're all better now!
Sounds like lots of good things happening. Anna makes me smile with her quotes :)

I'm thinking anything that involves jumping out of an airplane is not on my list of fun activities, Jeff has been made well aware of this, and I think my kids have caught some of my fear of jumping/falling out of things. It's not the height, it's the falling from it that's the problem.

Is she going to get her ipad? :)

Now you know she won't leave you alone until you buy her an ipad! She can go jump out of all the planes she wants to, I'll stay in the plane!
