Happy Winter Solstice!
We took a mini field trip to the Mission Santa Clara. If you’re in California, you may know that fourth graders do a project on the California Missions. Luckily this one is only about 20 minutes away. It’s located at Santa Clara University.
And since we were already in Santa Clara, we had to get takeout from Orenchi Ramen. They’re known for the tonkatsu broth. And their noodles are really nice and springy.
We also had Korean food last week. It was kinda to celebrate the last day of school for 2020. We have been distance learning since March! It’s been quite a feat. The whining, the constant distraction from other websites like the Epic ebooks, the forgetting to press the “Turn in” button on the google classroom document although the assignment has already been completed, the online PE lessons, the artwork and science projects, the online presentations and tests. How this will all continue when we go into 2021 with no end date in sight!
One of these amazing treats that friends from Seattle sent to us! There’s peanut brittle, homemade walnut fudge, peppermint bark, pistachio biscotti, and English toffee
