Last Thursday, I shared a picture of Chickadee with the poster she made for our European-themed summer school. Today, I’m taking a look at something else she did in summer school this year:
She’s played the US map of Ticket to Ride: My First Journey before, but this summer was her first chance to play the European map. She recognized many of the illustrations from watching Rick Steves’ Europe, and I didn’t even have to try to let her win…she’s a natural!
Yesterday was a very big day, because Chickadee decided she was ready to have her ears pierced!
Actually, I kind of figured she might be the one of the girls who wouldn’t ever have it done, which would have been fine. She’s always been concerned about how much it might hurt. But she’s been looking at our earrings a lot lately, and she decided that she could be brave, so after I had her think about it for a few days to make sure it was something she really wanted, we had it done!
