We went to the Magic House today. This was a questionable decision, as there were approximately one zillion people there. Even though I thought *I* was going to have a nervous breakdown trying to keep track of all of the children in the crowds, they all still had fun. A favorite activity for all four of them was “fishing.” There’s a small “stream” under plexiglass that runs through the children’s village, then dumps out into a little pond. Small magnetic fish travel the stream, and when they end up in the pond, children can “fish” them out with specially designed fishing poles. After you get your catch, you can go back to the other end of the stream, and “throw them back,” then follow them back down the stream until they come out again. It’s always a fun activity, and this time all four of them were able to do it, and they enjoyed showing off their “catch!”
For the last few years, Bunny has said she wants to be a doctor when she grows up–a pediatrician, to be exact. Today at the Magic House, she got the chance to pretend she was, and she loved it! I wouldn’t be at all surprised if she reaches this goal someday–she’s just that driven and dedicated. And if she does, I’ll have this picture with me when she graduates from med school, as proof that she achieved her dream!
