pumpkin-ausflugMy daughter’s face, on the way back from her first grade class field trip today, says it all: tired, happy, a bit muddy!

Ellen’s expression is mine right now after a day that flew by. Like my daughter, I am kaputt but happy. I’m sure I stepped in a small mud puddle or two, but sometimes that is what you have to do when you try something new!

I test my daughter’s German vocabulary by starting sentences and letting her finish them. This morning at 5:30, I said, “Ellen, heute machst du einen … Schulausflug!”

Good girl! She finished the sentence beautifully!
