It has not been a wonderful month for posting…….This is not because nothing has been happening, but, somehow, the spirit was…….sleepy? Perhaps this will change.
There was a festival at the German School and Ingmar was selling his pretzels, but that is not all he did….
There was some interesting dancing….But the most fun was the men’s group who did a skit in which Ingmar played Carmen Miranda, in costume……
Sofia did a German version of a Punch and Judy show for the younger kids.
Clara did a school presentation about Cleopatra and sewed the costume you see here. She did have some help from her Papa, but she did a lot of it herself.
Emily and her family drove to New Jersey for a weekend visit with her cousin Miki and his family. There was sledding. It is Clara and her cousin Lea you see above…. And Sofia and her Mom had a sleepover at the McKinley Museum in Canton.
Emily and her family are getting quite excited about their new house. They will be moving later in April. This Saturday they are driving to Florida for a week of vacation on Siesta Key in Sarasota. I’ll be flying to join them and am looking forward to sunny days by the Gulf of Mexico.
Meanwhile, as Emily was going through things to pack for the move, she had too much fun looking at old photos. The one below is of my three children about the time Andy was less than two. It does feel long ago! But a happy memory.
My grandsons have been busy, too, with swimming lessons and boy scout activities. But I could not find any pictures of them. And Nathan had to make a map of India out of unconventional materials and he stunned us all by weaving it out of bacon. It was not at all a bad job.I will leave it to your imagination.
