Highlights of the Week
Smarty was in the "making mood" this week, possibly inspired by a visit to our local mini Maker's Faire. Here she was "proving" to me that regular playdough conducts electricity by quickly putting together a simple circuit. I guess she did learn something last year in an engineering club organized by her father. She also poured over origami books and websites trying different origami patterns. Her favorite right now is a crane.
Places We Are Going
Last weekend was busy - on Sunday we met up with her best friend and his Mom at our local mini Maker's Faire. We cut the kids loose and agreed to meet at a landmark at a certain time. Smarty wanted to stay a little longer and try various crafts offered for free at the fair, but her friend was "all done" and went home. On Monday, I took both kids to see Ringling Bros circus. I understand that circus is quite controversial, but I grew up with deep love for traditional circus, and I still want Smarty to experience it. Both kids enjoyed it... about 3/4 of the way. By the end, both of them were really overstimulated and squirming in their seats, but I still thought it was the best Ringling Bros performance that we've seen since we started going about 5 years ago.
What My Child Is Reading
Favorite Memory of the Week
Smarty to me: Mama, I don't really like mess. I just hate to clean up.
Me: You know, this makes you the third person in our family of three who doesn't like to clean up. There are people who find cleaning house relaxing, but it's certainly not us.
Smarty: Only weird people could enjoy cleaning. They must be Trump supporters!
