In our lives. Anna had her last “organized” week of the summer – she attended a week of Mad Science camp i n our community center. She was “escited” on the first day – this is scared and excited at the same time, but she loved it. Now, I didn’t expect her to learn why experiments work, but the camp definitely added to her interest in all things science, so it was a big success.


Special events – I left on Friday for another trip to Israel and enjoying 100+ temperatures here. I certainly hope that one day I can bring my family here for a somewhat longer stay. In the meantime Anna will spend a week with papa at home going to swim lessons, reading and playing. I hope she has fun without me and discover time for projects that are always on her “one day” list.


Toys and Games. The weather was cool and windy in the beginning of the week, and papa took Anna to fly a kite. She is much better at it now than last time they tried to do it together, and she managed to keep a kite in the air for quite some time. I am sure papa and daughter will play a lot more games and build with Legos while I am gone.


Quote of the week:

  • Anna: My favorite number is 5.
  • Me: And next year it’s going to be 6, right?
  • Anna: No, mother. When you are 5, you are still small, cute and have no responsibilities. It all changes when you are 6. You have to work harder. It cannot be my favorite number.

Little J did a mad science camp last year and loved it. I can't believe she will be six next year! Have a great and safe trip.

I'm familiar with that "one day" lost. I have a similar one.

Have a safe trip. Glad she liked the camp!

I love how Anna thinks! Selena is on the same page with the number 5, except it means she is grown up and we can no longer call her our little girl or baby.

I adore Anna's quotes! I hope she does enjoy being 6 :)

Oh to be small, cute and have no responsibilities!
