Chickadee Thursday

Yesterday in the middle of school, Chickadee lost yet another top tooth!

It’s a good thing that last month the dentist assured her that her new teeth will come in eventually, because it’s gotten to be a pretty big gap, and I think she’d be a little concerned otherwise!

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!

Chickadee is very excited about the poster she made about her favorite location we’ve “visited” in our Rick Steves’ Europe themed summer school this year–Paris!

Chickadee Thursday

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!

Chickadee Thursday

Last summer, Chickadee, Moose, and I rode the MetroLink from one end of the red line (Shiloh-Scott) to the other (Lambert Airport). This summer, Moose decided we needed to do the same for the blue line, so this morning, we hopped on a train in Fairview Heights and rode all the way to Shrewsbury-Lansdowne I-44 and back again!

Chickadee had to ride standing up for part of the trip, because that makes it even more fun!

I think MetroLink is going to need to add a new line so we can do this again someday!

Chickadee Thursday

We spent the morning at the St. Louis Science Center, and it even cooled off enough to make a walk around outside to see the F/A-18B Hornet a not unpleasant experience!

Throwback (Chickadee) Thursday

Today’s Chickadee Thursday post had me thinking back to the only other time Chickadee Thursday fell on the Fourth of July, six years ago…what a quick six years it has been!
