We have been on a quest for a good burger for awhile now. We have tried and failed multiple times….until Otto. A glorious new burger shop opened a couple of months ago. It is a truly American burger…no hint of lamb, a good sized meat patty, cheese… Since its opening, we have gone there for every family birthday celebration or other special occasion. They know our family’s order without us having to tell them. They have had other customers walk in and say, “I heard about this place from the Americans and I want to order what they do.” We are glad to give them the business because we sure want them to make it!
The kids are done with thier semester of swimming. Before the last day, though, the coach invited SK to join practice for a day. She was so excited and kept talking about what her “hoach” said. A cross between English ‘coach’ and ‘hoca’ – coach in the local language.
We are taking a break from sports during the month of June and will likely start something back up in July. For now, I’m happy for the more relaxed schedule!
As the school year came to a close we had a kite day for co-op. Making kites was a more involved process than I would have thought! After everyone was finished, we headed to the park to try them out.
After a picnic and a run with the kites we stopped at a new favorite restuarant that has ‘slushies like Sonic’. Unfortunately though, no happy hour or drive thru!
After the slushies, we tried out a new pirate ship that has recently opened for tours.
The boat had its issues- scamming us on tea and music I would have rather the kids not have heard but all in all it was a fun time!
Another fun co-op day!
Last month, SK’s preschool had a spring open house. It was fun to talk with her teachers about how she is doing and see all the crafts they have been working on. We were quite impressed!
Mickey and Mini were in the school garden, along with a bubble machine and a loud repeat playing of the National Anthem.
Here’s SK’s English speaking teacher. She is so gentle and good with her.
This is SK’s local language speaking teacher.
We are still happy with SK’s preschool experience. Next year, this school is opening an elementary school as well. It will be a dual language school with both an English speaking teacher and a local language speaking teacher in the room at all times. We are considering putting N and J in as well in order to expand their local language skills in a hopefully less-threatening environment. Who knows. We have a long time to make that decision but I’m thankful to know the option is there.
