Well, today was different and fun. Gabe came down the stairs late this morning and asked if we wanted to jump in the van rightthissecond and go see President Obama at a local university. None of us have ever seen a President in real life while he’s in office except for Gabe (he saw President Reagan at a train station in Lima back in the day).
So we pulled messy hair into ponytails, threw on yesterday’s clothes, and hopped in the van. Three cheers for spontaneity!
Except we found out we needed tickets. Boo.
So we headed to the pet store instead.
The girls have been begging for pets as long as I’ve known them, and aside from Ava’s 4th birthday present (Bubbles the fish), we’ve successfully shot them down for years.
And now that we’re homeschooling, they’ve almost convinced us that a pet would be uber-educational. So we discussed fish. And now have moved on to turtles/tortoises. We sort of fell in love with some adorable baby Sulcata tortoises at the pet store, but I’ll let Ava tell you about them, because…
the girls’ blogs are up and ready to go!!
Thanks to Gabe and his amazingness and patience, they each have their own blogs and will be using them to share stuff they love, stuff they’re learning at the Taviano Global Academy, and what have you.
Here are links to each of them.
If you have a free minute, they’d love to have you stop by and say hi!
