So it’s back to school for us this week, after 2 weeks of Spring holidays.
We didn’t do very much this holiday. Our big thing was building a garden seat out of 2 pallets which we saved off the sidewalk last year.
Then there was the Ferienpass (holiday programs from the parent association in our village) in the first week. Tobias visited a bus factory and made a model bus out of metal. He got to spray-paint it and it is a useful pencil-holder. There were other programs he was interested in but they were full. I helped out again at the playgroup Ferienpass program, where we made bunny bags and sang bunny songs (the theme was bunnies because of Easter).
During the second week, we went over to a friend’s and played games for an afternoon, which was great fun. On another day, Tobias went for a movie with his friend, by themselves. i dropped them off and picked them up. They loved it! We got in some squash practice. And of course, Tobias cooked 2 lovely dinners as he always does during holidays.
So although it has been a rather quiet-type holiday, compared to our usual, we enjoyed it. Now onto finishing the school year in style 😉
i had a wonderful time, speaking to people about Angel Crafts Shop’s mission to help grow adoption grants of special needs orphans as well as made a good number of sales, which will go to help grow Peterson’s grant.
i also met a Phoenix Trader, which i’m very pleased about cos i love Phoenix cards and they also give to charities every Christmas! There were people there who make pottery, scarves, knit-wear, decorative items, clothes, jams and jewelry. And i had the best cupcakes ever from Just Desserts! i am also happy to have made the acquaintance of people from Compassion – a charity which supports needy children in many developing countries.
