We found this cute kid wandering at the airport, so we snatched her.
We went to the aquarium where we fished for plankton and examined it under a microscope. (I had no idea barnacles were plankton! Did you?) We fed slimey things to sea urchins and pet the starfish.
We got diabetes fancy cupcakes. Rootbeer float and strawberry lemonade to be exact. Don't worry, Kenzie didn't eat it all, she preferred to save it. (Along with half a bottle of chocolate milk and a muffin from the plane, which I discovered four days into her stay. Chunky. Their room smelled much nicer after that).
We did some school (insects!), went to dance class, soccer, and Awana. She wanted her hair straightened like Keston. They also straightened Barbie's hair. It didn't go over so well, but Keston reported that Barbie was already missing all her fingers anyway so it was fine. I later scraped nylon off my (Sophia's) nice straightener. Good as new. :)
There was craft day at 4-H.
And tonight there was the Olympic event of in-the-dark trampoline-ing-in-30-degree-weather until past bedtime. They'll remember that when they are grown, oh my goodness there was so much laughing! Then they came in and pajamed up, claiming they were thirsty. For some reason, it was hilarious to them. I think the cold went to their brains.
It's going very well! She brings lots of giggles to our house, that's for sure! :) It's going too quickly, we really need to pack in the sight seeing and adventures in the next 4 days! (Oh, I mean home school, Auntie Debbie, we're going to hit the books, ya, that's it!)
