Highlights of the Week
Places We Are Going
My brother and sister in-law always go to the same place – St. Petersburg near Tampa. Smarty’s favorite part of Florida week is a 2-day pass to Busch Gardens. She is not a big fan of rides, but she enjoys seeing shows and observing animals. Last year, she got to pet a kangaroo, but she was very disappointed this year, because it was too hot and kangaroos were not interested in interacting with humans. She also visited an art museum and a circus museum.
What My Child Is Reading
Disclosure: Amazon affiliate links in this section. We saved Artemis Fowl by Eoin Colfer for the trip to Florida to make sure that Smarty has something “meaty” to sink her mind to while on vacation. She is hooked and is already polishing off book #3 in the series. I should be used to it by now, but it always amazes me how fast she reads and how much she retains from what she reads.
