Highlights of the Week
This week, we enjoyed the last warm days of Indian summer before our weather suddenly flipped to bitter cold (well, for our area anyway). On Wednesday, Smarty and her Papa flew to Florida to spend some time with her German aunt and uncle. They are staying in Naples and will do their usual yearly trip to the Busch Gardens that Smarty quite enjoys. They will be back on Tuesday night, just in time for Thanksgiving with my parents.
Smarty got her Christmas present early - we signed her up for taekwondo! Our friends gave her a gift certificate for a trial class for her birthday, and she loved it so much that she was begging us to switch from gymnastics to martial arts. She already had her first lesson and received her white belt - she can't wait to start practicing and moving up the ranks. I think this sport would be great for her as it promotes both body awareness and mental discipline.
What My Child Is Reading
Places We Are Going
Last Sunday, Smarty took a fun class with Lyceum on silk painting. She painted a small handkerchief and a suncatcher.
Favorite Memory of the Week
Smarty to me, People keep asking me if I am really in middle school. I know, it's easier for me to pass for a 7 year old than even for a 10 year old, even though I am really 10!
