How quickly can you add 9152 + 8599? Or, come up with the answer to 95 x 89? Nope – this isn’t a math test – but, I was mesmerized by an advertisement I saw that showed 7 and 8 year olds adding 4 digit numbers and multiplying double digit ones in less time than it usually takes me to hit my snooze button Monday through Friday! I don’t remember what the product was that helped them compute so quickly – but, in honor of their quick computing, I decided to make the 3 day weekend we just had, into a 7 day weekend! Yup, I took most of last week off and, instead of planning a trip to someplace outside Atlanta or actually heading out on a trip out of here (like I usually do), I stayed put and enjoyed a stay-cation with my kiddo. Other than fighting off hornets, my daughter and I did venture outside of our yard – one of the places we ventured to was the Swan House. The Swan House, which is part of the Atlanta History Center, was built in the 1920’s and has gorgeous woodwork and embellishments throughout the house. From fireplaces, to chandeliers, to even the walls – there’s so much to “ooh” and “aah” about – that is if you are into architecture and/or The Hunger Games & Catching Fire, as in both movies, The Swan House was used as President Snow’s home. But, you don’t have to be a fan of the Hunger Games/Catching Fire to be in awe of the beauty of the interior and the exterior grounds of this amazing place. Not pictured were parts of the trail that looped around The Swan House through dense woods. All that trail walking and exploring left us gals famished and I sure was glad to have packed some of these little bites to nosh on! These bites are packed with energizing Bob’s Red Mill Hazelnut Meal and almond butter; and drizzled with chocolate – they are a reason to not need my snooze button in the morning! However, trying to share them equally with my daughter always leaves me wondering about my own math skills!
