Highlights of the Week

Two school events made Smarty quite happy this week. First, her 6th grade went on a trip to San Jose Egyptian Museum. Last time she was there at 3 and was completely terrified of the mummy in the entrance hall. She has finally been able to put this fear behind and enjoy her trip. Also, they started a new unit in Makers' Lab - they will be building and programming mBots. She has a partner that she likes, and she seems quite excited about this unit - a lot more than she was about LittleBits units in the first trimester.
Smarty returned to her taekwondo classes, this is the first "cycle" that she will do from start to testing time. You don't see her in this picture, because she is behind the instructor. The "theme" for this cycle is "discipline", and it's interesting to see how instructors "weave" the theme of obedience and discipline into their class time. I am dying to see more discipline at home :)
What My Child Is Reading
It's hard for me to tell what Smarty is reading since she has several books going at the same time, both "analog" books and Kindle books, but she commented that she would like to get more books from The Land of Stories series by Chris Colfer.
