In our lives… It’s been another crazy week at work both for me and for my husband where I was starting my work day at 6 am and ending it at 11 pm. However, Anna doesn’t seem to mind as long as her normal routine of having dinner together, reading before bed and cuddling before going to sleep is not disrupted. She is enjoying school, her Y afterschool program, her chess club and gymnastics.
Afterschool. Anna still spends a lot of her free time reading. She is now going through Famous Five series by Enid Blyton with some Boxcar Children mixed in for good measure. In the evening by Anna’s request we are reading Fractions and Decimals Made Easy and Anna is solving a lot of fraction word problems that I and her Dad throw at her. Here is an example, If you are third of your lunch, and a bird ate 1/6 of your lunch, how much lunch went into a wastebasket?
Places we are going. This Sunday we finally managed to go hiking again and drove to Big Basin. I was looking through my pictures, but it’s so hard to capture the size of redwood trees with a camera. Anna is loving hollow trees where she can play hide-and-seek. It’s an amazing place to visit, we are very blessed to have some of those redwood giants even growing in our neighborhood park.
