Koma was so excited to choose her backpack and lunch bag for kindergarten! She debated among several choices and finally settled on a pretty polka set. She missed the birthday cutoff by 6 days so she tested in a few months ago. We deliberated at length but her strong desire to start school and her keen mind encouraged us to let her begin this year.
Summer wouldn’t be summer without golf lessons. Unni enjoyed her summer session of lessons and even made the newspaper in a group photo!
One morning we drove to Milwaukee and spent the entire day at Discovery World. The girls loved exploring all the science exhibits and found the interactive displays very engaging. They learned about viruses, water mechanics, the Great Lakes, physics of sound, robotics, the Morse Code, gravity, gears, levers, pulleys, boats, etc. In one very neat area, Unni even flew an airplane via flight simulator. She maneuvered the plane quite well and landed without incident. The girls played tic tac toe against a robot that would dance a little happy dance when it won. All told, we were highly impressed with what this museum offered.
Besides the weekly swimming lessons this summer, we have spent many hours at the pool cooling off and diving for rings.
