Highlights of the Week
- I was sworn as a juror in a long trial, and now my life is a non-ending juggle, since there is nobody at work to take over my responsibilities for the next 2.5 months.
- Smarty got over her virus and is back in school. Luckily, both my husband and I didn’t catch it this time... yet
- We are having a beautiful fall weather! Hoping for some time outside this weekend.
SchoolIt was a testing week in school. Smarty said that the tests were easy. Next week we are going to have a report card and the first parent-teacher conference. I probably won’t be able to attend due to jury duty, so it will be up to my husband to ask all the questions this time. Smarty’s favorite part of school this week was an extended assignment from her advanced language arts teacher – the topic is “text features”, and everyone has to design and write a four page newspaper. I am looking forward to seeing her newspaper when she brings it home. They also started on “space” topic in science, and Smarty was assigned a report on Venus, so she was doing some research online with my help for her report.
We learned more about Ben Franklin this week through books and a documentary movie. It was a follow up to the first book in 39 Clues series, since the book was centered around places and events in Ben Franklin’s life. Smarty spent the rest of her time reading on her own or playing with her new Lego Friends sets.
