It’s been a full week around here!
On Sunday night, after days of lots of wiggling, Ellie lost her first tooth while eating some raisin bread. She was so happy! She wanted to keep her tooth, so she placed it under her pillow in a tic tac box along with a note asking the tooth fairy if she could keep her tooth. Ellie was very happy to tell us in the wee hours of the morning that her tooth and one euro had been left behind. I heard her tell Francis in the morning that the tooth fairy knows her name now because it was on the note she left. I asked Ellie after school the next day if she told her friends... she responded, on the bus I told Zach-Zach, “Well, life has changed” and then I showed him my missing tooth. :)
Monday was Rosenmontag... the kids dressed up as chefs at school, played on pots and pans as drums, and ate mini pizzas.
Tuesday was Faschingdienstag... where everyone in town dresses us! The kids enjoyed eating Krapfen (doughnut with apricot filling) at school.
Lent began on Wednesday. The kids and I did the Stations of the Cross with the books they colored on Friday afternoon.
Wishing everyone a blessed Lent!
Ps, we just got the kids’ school pics :)
