And once again I am so happy to do this project. It's truly amazing how much goes into just one week. Maybe some people have an incredible memory. Definitely not me. I barely remember what we did last weekend. Luckily I have these pictures to transport me back in time.
NHM - No Hesitation Math - you have to solve 24 number sentences in 1 minute.
You were so excited to get the very first letter from your pen pal Zoe!
One of these moments “to shoot or to parent”? I ran to grab my camera, took few shots and then said in a strict voice: “Sonya, why you are not doing your homework!?” This is why I don't have as many funny pictures of you as I see.
You were so happy to enjoy the beautiful weather at the park with your friends. But then we’ve got into an argument about your jacket. You wanted to take it off claiming that it’s hot and were showing me your American friend who was wearing a hoodie. I, on other hand, insisted on keeping it on and was showing you your Russian friend who was wearing a winter jacket, winter hat and boots.
Snow storm Niko. After an almost spring weather yesterday.
All public schools were closed today, but your charter stayed open. When we woke up at 6 AM it didn’t look that bad so we sent you to school. I regretted this decision and went to pick you up around noon. I also picked up your friend Alexi who lives in the neighborhood, so his mom wouldn’t have to go pick him up by train. On the way back you two decided that playing together in snow is a must, so that’s what we did.
And I couldn't select just one picture, so I am sharing another one.
"This is my snow castle".
We are moving this month and, since I knew I am going to start packing your room this weekend, I wanted to take a picture of it before that. We are moving within the same neighborhood, so it won't be a big of a change, but you are still nervous about it. We've been in this apartment for 5 years, since you were 2. Probably the longest time at one place.
This picture is very special for me. As special as the person in the picture. I met Edith during the summer when you were a baby and I took you to the beach twice a day. You had extraordinary bright blue eyes and your skin got dark in the sun so they really popped. People were stopping us in the street to look at you. Edith was also fascinated by it and that's how we met. We had long conversations at the beach daily and became really close.
You love Edith and always want to go visit her. She keeps joking that her house is like a museum full of art and interesting little things. This time Edith let you play with the very old dolls that her daughter used to play with when she was your age. You had such a deep respect to them. You played very carefully and then organized everything very neatly. Then Edith gave you a necklace as a Valentine's Day gift and you didn't want to take it off even when it was time to go to bed.
In this picture you are listening to the "Sleeping Beauty" recording. You were fascinated both by the music and by the whole experience.
