The highlight of this preschool year occurred last week when Koma’s turn at Very Important Kid came around. She had looked forward to the day she could wear the important yellow badge around her neck and perform all the duties it entailed such as being line leader and dressing the weather frog. She ran to Mom in excitement at pickup time to show off her special role for the day.
Well, it’s as close as we’re going to get for awhile, possibly ever. Dad hasn’t seen the new Africa exhibit at the zoo and since Halabuji and Halmoni came to visit us this past weekend, we decided to visit again. The girls wished for two things — one was to see the cheetahs (which we missed last month) and the other was to ride the airtram. Mom wanted to watch an IMAX film (we chose the National Parks one which featured a prairie dog), and all three wishes blew true. Again, we found the new exhibits awe-inspiring — giraffes, elephants, cheetahs, lions, ostriches, etc. The tram ride was somewhat nerve-wracking for Halmoni with whom both girls wanted to ride. She was worried about the littlest one slipping down under the bar. The girls didn’t have a clue and simply loved the ride in the air. Dad and Mom are now old people and haven’t a clue how to take a good selfie, so don’t laugh too much.
