Fall school vacation is half over. This is the time of the year where I love the German school system–we had barely gotten going at school and it was already time for a break. Of course, the down side is that we often have school until the end of July before the 6-week summer vacation.
Fall is definitely in the air with chilly temperatures and turning leaves. This past week I enjoyed a walk around the lake in our town (and missed having Kassandra with me).
Two weeks ago Fred participated in a course for the fire department to learn how to use the digital walkie-talkie. To celebrate the accomplishment, he decided to take cookies to his group for the end of the next practice–and made the cookies himself!
Travis is a big fan of the card game “Munchkin” and has about 20 different versions of the game. The sad thing is that we haven’t played many of them, mostly because Kassandra does not enjoy the game. So, while Kassandra is off in the USA, we decided to have a Munchkin tournament and play all of the extensions and versions. That is what we do on Thursdays for family night. So far, Erik has won 3 of the 4 games! This past week we played “Munchkin–Nightmare Before Christmas.”
