School. Woo-hoo – it was the last week before a Thanksgiving break. We received our first report card for this year. In summary, Smarty is doing very well in every subject. We see a big jump in writing and spelling this year, but we are still stumped about math, since there is simply no challenge for her with existing math curriculum. We will continue this "interesting” conversation about math with school after the break.
Afterschool. It was a great week at home too. School had shorter days because of parent-teacher conferences, and Smarty had a lot more energy after school. A rainbow loom fever has finally reached our house as well – Smarty received a Rainbow Loom as one of her birthday presents, and is learning how to make simple bracelets with it. As usual, she spent a lot of time reading and singing songs from her Honk! theater production.
places we are going. I didn’t publish my usual “week in review” last week, because Smarty and her Papa were in Naples, Florida. Mostly they were hanging out with the relatives who came from Germany for their annual vacation, but they also spent 2 days in The Busch Gardens. Smarty said that this time feeding and petting kangaroos was her highlight from The Busch Gardens. She is lucky – I am yet to pet a kangaroo!
Your turn: How was your week?
