Week Sixty-Nine-ish kinda. More like, what snapshots can I find on my iPhone? Let’s see!
Speaking of the kid’s school, I forgot to post these pictures from a while ago but their school hosted its annual International Festival. It kicks off with a parade of nations. It’s like being at the opening ceremonies of the Olympics, except the athletes are tiny. I worked the morning shift at the American booth where we sold hot dogs, root beer floats and Bud Light.
At school in their classrooms, the kids are finishing up a unit of learning entitled “Out and About”. They walk and take city buses to different businesses in the neighborhood and learn about what goes into each business. Learning that different places are for different things. Remember, there are no Super-Walmarts here so we actually have to go different places for different things! We went to a laundromat, a bakery, a florist, and a grocery store.
While Nana was in town, she got to help chaperone one of these field trips to the Florist.
Speaking of Nana’s visit a few weeks ago, we went to the zoo and also technopolis. The kids were so excited to show Nana around some of their favorite places. BUT, as is typical tradition, we didn’t take any pictures of Nana with Zane and Lily. We are normally having so much fun it isn’t until after we get home that we say, did you take any pictures? No, did you?? ARRRRGGGG!
But, here is a video of the house that Nana and I built for Zane and Lily. I wish I could buy these blocks but they are over 500 dollars for only 75 of them!
The video cuts out but yes the little house of bricks DID come tumbling down.
Elmar, Lily and Léa are all in the same class at school, Zane did not come on this trip with us. When asked he said he wanted to stay home. Then, later, he saw the pictures and was so sad he didn’t join in. Next time.
The sun is out and spring MAY actually be here, highs have been in the low 50s all the way up to the 60s. Fingers crossed.
