Photo update

The last 10 days have melded into a blur. S and B are enjoying jam-packed social calenders, with end-of-the-year school activities, field trips and birthday parties. I'm doing my best to keep up with them, but can feel my brain starting to wither with the effort.

We're having fun, though, and here are a couple of pictures just to bring you up to date:


B's class participated in "Sports Day" in which all the 1st and 2nd grade classes competed against each other in track and field events. Here's Speedy pulling ahead in the final stretch.
I flew to Dublin to visit an old friend. Luckily I'm well connected, otherwise I might have had to stay here...
S and his class took a field trip to a sheep farm last friday. They learned a lot about wool production and even got to try their hands at spinning yarn!

The high point, however, had nothing to do with sheep. They all got to swim in a creek that ran through the farm. Hence the bathing suit and wet hair in this picture.

ah that's why it was that quiet over here. Well I hope you had a good time though. When will school be out?

I'm always amazed at how late in the summer the German schools run. I guess it's the same in the Netherlands.

I think C would be melting by now.

These all seem like great activities, though.

I'm glad you were well-connected in Dublin, too. That boarding home looks mighty bleak.

The kid stuff, though, looks like great fun. Spinning is one of those things I've gotta learn how to do someday.

It's cool how many fun projects the kids get to do here in Germany. I think the school activities are more hands on than in the states.
