Week in Review

We've taken the kayak out twice so far. Super fun. Our next kayak adventure will be "Yachts of the Rich and Famous." Meaning, we're going to tour Newport Bay and this time I promise to take pictures.

Mermaid had a Fall Festival at her school. She wore her yukata anticipating a matsuri (festival). Sorely disappointed. "Festivals in Japan are way better."

I got a B on my midterm test. There were 100 multiple choice questions. I did not study that hard. I am unashamed. Maybe I'll study more for the final. Maybe. I will turn in a stunning paper. Next semester, I'm just taking one class. Not online.

Mermaid got her progress report back. She has several areas that "need improvement." I think everyone needs to take a step back and remember that she's only 6 and if she's anything like her parents has 15+ years of school left. I'm considering burning her grades for at least this year.


  1. Oooh! A kayak ... I am officially jealous. Someday, I tell my husband, we will have matching sea kayaks and go on fabulous paddling/camping adventures in the beautiful corners of the world. Can't wait to see some pictures :)

  2. I am also jealous about the kayak. Can't wait to see some pictures.

    100 multiple choice questions? yikes. I would of failed, no doubt. I hate multiple choice it just confuses my brain to a mush.

    Giving grades to a 6 year old sounds criminal. It's even worse when parent take them seriously.

    I hope you guys come for Thanksgiving. Bring your kayak so we can go for a ride.
