Highlights of the Week
- Last Sunday we watched Germany win the World Cup in soccer and celebrated their victory.
- I picked up a very intense project at work, we’ll have to see what it will do to my blog life.
- Smarty’s theme in her Y Camp was Chemical Chaos with a field trip to SF Academy of Science museum and a trip to Round Pizza to see how pizza is made. She loved this week of camp!
- We had a playdate with one of her best friends and his younger sister. The kids didn’t see each other for a while but picked right where they left off – it’s great to see that this friendship is still going strong. Hoping that they are put in the same class this year (they were in different classes last year).
What My Child Is Reading
Smarty is mostly rereading her favorite parts of Rick Riordan’s Percy Jackson series… again! She also went through two first chapters of 101 Kids Activities book by Holly Homer and Rachel Miller trying to decide what she wants to do. So far nothing really spurred her to action, but I have high hopes for the next two chapters (Games and Science). Our weekly books are placed in my Amazon affiliate widget.
Places We Are GoingAnother highlight of the week was that we renewed our California State Parks Pass with the goal of going on hikes more often. We found the way to make hiking more interesting for Smarty by adding special photography stops on the way. Last Sunday we went to our closest and most favorite state park – The Castle Rock.
Favorite Memory from This Week
Me: I slept like a log last night.
Husband: You were a very loud log.
Smarty: Maybe it was a log with a frog on it.
