Chickadee Thursday

I can’t believe I didn’t mention it last Thursday, but Chickadee started catechesis last week! Here’s a picture of her right before class began yesterday, deep in thought, and ready to turn her first sermon report in:

It’s hard to believe that this is the last time I’ll be going through this process with one of my children…I’m trying to make sure I slow down and enjoy it!

Today, instead of playing tennis, we visited the Ninja Warrior course at the Carondelet Park Rec Complex in south St. Louis. Chickadee found this course to be much more suitable to her size than the other one we visited in the St. Louis area, and she had a lot of fun trying out the different challenges!

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!

My Students

The Fab Five are all ready for a new school year…Turkey and Bunny are in 11th grade, Moose starts eighth grade tomorrow, Ladybug is in seventh, and Chickadee is a second grader!

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!
