Mehmet and Miro, the two gorgeous young men you see above, started the first year of school.
If you´re coming from anywhere out of Gerany, you might wonder what they are holding - it´s a Schultüte, a tradition we have here - at the very first day of school, each kid gets such a huge paperbag, usually made by mom, and filled with treats. Traditionally it was completely filled with sweets, but Mehmet and Miro´s Schultüten were filled with all sorts of goodies - clay packs, special pens, Lord Voldemort action figures, craft kits,stamps and, well, of course some sweets.
And of ourse I made their Schultüten :)
One day later:
And, to be all together, and because Eva wasn´t really quite happy at her old, rather conservative school, Eva changed school as well and is now, two grades above Ronja, just where all her siblings are.
Oh, and where I am! Spending my days...
Not that I hadn´t done that before, but I started with a new class, and with a lot more hours a week, and my real, paid, contract. Additionally, I began freelance-translating during the evenings - I translate all sorts of texts, from geographic descriptions to job applications to articles on espresso machines, and I really enjoy it - kids during the day, translating during the evenings. I´ve always loved the English language. If you need anything translated into German, you can hire me :)
We are all tired and overwhelmed this week, and I´m not really sure how to keep up with my social contacts, not to speak of the housework. Also, with us all coming home around 5 every day, I don´t know how I am supposed to continue my soap-making juice-boiling- sewing-experimenting, but I´m pretty sure I´ll find a way - I´m allready planning button bracelets and making jam with my kids in school.
Hear me roar :)
Yep, I do like this better than the original. I am convinced that almost every song can be improved being sung by Tyler Ward. I´m looking forward to October - I´ll be seeing him live then, again, for the fourth time :)
