A 5-year old is apparently quite content to travel the world within the confines of her own 4 walls. Ella is convinced that her preschool class's recent studies of Italy, Africa and Hawaii make her an expert on all things abroad. When her class studied Hawaii I volunteered to help out. We ate hawaiin food (think pineapple and ocean cupcakes), played luau music and even did a beach-themed limbo. I'm sure the children in her class thought it was great, but it was a far cry from the beach to me!
