How Did the Week Go?


It was a busy week with my second grader turning seven years old (she is one of the very youngest students in her year). A lot of wishes came true for her – she lost her first tooth, went with us to the Exploratorium as a surprise birthday trip on Friday, and had a fun party with her classmates. Smarty had several specific wishes for her birthday presents – she was hoping for her own camera and now she is a full owner of my old Canon Elf, she also asked for WEDGitS Expansion set and Editor-In-Chief book (Amazon Affiliate links). It’s nice to be a child when your wishes can be granted by your loving family Smile

    Happy Birthday!!! Looks delightfully fun! I'm thinking of getting the kids WEDGiTS for Christmas - do you think the basic set is enough for 2 to play or should I get the expansion one too?

    My kids love Wedgits too, but we don't have the expansion set yet. Happy birthday to Smartypants!
