Natalia started second grade last week and she is excited to be at school. I do hope second grade starts to challenge her in at least one subject as she is thus far a little advanced. She has been reading quite a bit and I am amazed at the level she reads and the speed. She has started to read the Captain Underpants series and well, this has gotten her attention to read and I am glad.
Among our other notable happenings lately has been a trip to the Aquarium of the Pacific with my parents and stuffing our face with Cuban food all day. As far as games, we have been playing Monopoly Gamer, Mole Rats in Space and Jumanji. We finally won our first game of Mole Rats in Space the other day and found Jumanji at the local thrift store.
Baron Trump's Marvelous Underground Adventures" by Ingersoll Lockwood and read this book which is over 100 years old. Quite amazed at it but nothing universe turning. A book similar to the Wizard of Oz books but published a few years earlier. I am back to the penultimate book in the Civil War series, Savannah and looking forward to finishing this long series. Also was recommended a Star War series that continues the saga after the Battle of Endor and looking forward to reading that trilogy soon.

Last week it was a great pleasure and surprise to see my good friends Ed and Sherryl Correa as they made a quick stop in the area. It has been far too many years and we caught up a little. Now I have to make the plans to see my BFF out in northern Arizona soon.
