School has only been in session a week, and already I am learning so much. I am learning about the many ways to see aquatic life in Southern California. I am learning about the many ways to experience Little Tokyo. I am learning what it's like to drink a cup of coffee uninterrupted.
Not one to hog all the learning, I plan to offer some educational opportunities to my daughter as well. This weekend, for example, she can learn about the 1950s, Iberoamerican folk art, and the music of Veracruz. She can learn to write a travel journal, make a Chinese lantern, dance Flamenco, and play the ukulele. And because Momma gets hungry, she can learn how to make pizza (both foccaccia and classic style).
And after all that learning, I think we'll both have earned a little treat. Perhaps some vegan soft serve (free). Perhaps a concert (free). Perhaps a movie (free. Or maybe free). Because if I've learned anything in my week of school, it's that nothing beats free.
Feel free to keep reading to learn our favorite picks for this weekend....
