This was a bit odd....

Bug was very busy drawing earlier today. I asked her what she was drawing. Her reply? "Eye Cancer"...Here it is:

The love of reading.

Bug has been reading one or two books a day for the past two weeks. She's doing well. It's hard work, for sure, but she's so excited about it. Here she is, reading to me this morning.

Rock and roll!!!

Bug just rediscovered her electric guitar. Her dad told her she's got an amp, as well, so now he gets to bring that home this weekend as she "needs it".

School time!

Bug & I started our schoolyear on Monday. She was writing, so I suggested she write a list of things she likes to eat:

Here she is, hard at work on some math. The look on her face in these two photos is too funny.

Here's a happy girl. It was time to do a science experiment. She's holding a Gummi Bear. We had to measure it and then put it in a glass of water overnight. She correctly guessed that it would get bigger. She also learned the word "osmosis".

It's fair time!

We spent the day at a local county fair. It was a bit rainy when we got there and got VERY rainy for a bit, but turned into a beautiful day. We didn't tell Bug we were going, so she was a very happy girl when she spotted the midway. We'd taken her two years ago and she still talks about it.
Here she is on the ferris wheel. It was a very shaky ride and didn't appear to be very safe...of course, we didn't realize that until we were on it. It made for a cool picture, though.

Here's Bug and her dad on the family favorite: the tilt-a-whirl. We rode this many times. Early in the day the lines were short, which was nice.
Bug loved the dragon ride. The little girl with her grabbed Bug's hand while they were in line and asked "do you want to ride with me?" Then they were hugging.

The carousel is always fun...except when it crushes your foot! As I was helping Bug get on, another mom climbed on to help her kid. Well, I'm tall enough that I was standing on the ground while doing this and the whole thing shifted down onto my foot. It hurt so bad. I lost a bit of the outer layer of skin and I think I'll have some bruising. Not bad considering what it felt like. Bug was blissfully unaware.

Here she learns the joys of waiting in line.

Bug talked her dad, who doesn't care much for heights, to go on this ride. It moved quickly and lifted them way up in the air...occasionally dropping them a bit before going back up. Bug LOVED it. Daddy loved Bug enough to ride it twice!

Discovering that waiting in line can be a drag...or maybe it was having Mommy take one more pic.

Here's Bug checking out a rooster. She said that he was very soft.

How hot & humid did it get? Well....this llama was all over this fan....

We found a place for Bug to play. No, not a sandbox, a CORNbox!


Bug & I have discovered Letterboxing. ( Basically, you follow clues to a hidden box. Inside is a book and a stamp. You have your own book and stamp. You stamp their book with your stamp/your book with their stamp. Bug even made her own stamp. We'll work on a better one someday. She was so excited, as you can see here:
But quite serious when it came time to stamp and sign the book.
