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
- 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.
