Highlights of the Week

It was a vacation week! It started with an epic rainstorm when we got almost 10 inches of water in 3 days. Luckily, we did not have any water damage on our property, but this storm certainly stalled our landscape project. We made the best of rainy weather, stayed inside for a long weekend and enjoyed playing board games. We finally had enough time to master Dominion, and we played it several times this week trying different card extensions.
Taekwondo Belt Testing
Smarty had her second belt testing this week. She was working very hard these past two months, and she was happy to see her efforts reflected in her perfect score. Going forward, we are changing days for her practices to accommodate her other activities and move her classes earlier in a day when she is less tired, but she is definitely eager to continue with taekwondo. I hope she sticks around all the way to the black belt!
What My Child Is Reading
Both Smarty and I are currently reading Stuff Matters - an amazing non-fiction story of 11 most common materials by Mark Mlodownik. I highly recommend this book to science-minded kiddos age 10 and up as well as to their parents - it gives an amazing insight into the history and future of man-made materials. In addition, Smarty read a number of other books during her vacation:
