    DD3.5 finished assembling her world map this week. She has been working on it at school for 4 months now diligently and meticulously punching out each continent. Poor thing, punched out Asia twice bcos the first one tore a little. She collected each continent and when she was all done, used a real world map as a guide to put hers together. I am so proud of her for her hard work and determination!

    A funny post. My friend gave me some home made lemon poppy bread. When I gave it to dd she said," wow! What a beautiful name for a bread. It is like you bake a lemon and it pops into a bread! I love it!"

    I took DD9 to work yesterday for Take Your Child to Work Day. They had a fair number of activities that were not really what I do at work, but her favorite part of the day was getting to write and defend a patent claim. smile

    This was too cute not to post. DS18mo attended his first children's party today. As we were leaving and thanking the girl's parents for having us, DS sang the birthday song to the guest of honour, including her name, totally unprompted. The tune was pretty close, too!

    Wow, lovemydd and Elizabeth, those are sharp girls you have. Love the stories!

    @lovemydd: Your daughter might like this course, which teaches world mapping by memory.

    DD (4) won a round of hangman at a library program. She correctly guessed gorilla for g_ _ i_ _ _, given the clue that it was an animal.

    Today, I had a well check for my 15 month old. The doctor asked what words she says and I replied, "Mama, papa [DS's name]..."

    DS has an uncommon name, so the doctor said, "Oh, {DS's name]! I just got some paperwork from the school district about him. He's a frickin genius, isn't he?"

    smile

    This is a huge accomplishment. I have been in the classroom and observed how diligently the kids work on those...she should be proud! We laminated dd's--I have another friend who invested a little more money and framed it.
