Angela: So sorry for your loss. She was a great woman. I hope you feel a bit better. Kisses from Spain. Apr 22, 2018 23:34:43 GMT 9 *
Mayken: We visited a Loire Valley château yesterday. Our daughter got a kids' activity booklet and we parents got the regular tour booklet in French. She asked for one in German (our ml). When I later asked her why, she said "Because I'm a German-speaker!" :) Apr 23, 2018 23:23:36 GMT 9
Nellie: Haha love it Mayken! The best thing is - she is right! Apr 24, 2018 5:45:09 GMT 9

Amy: Cute Mayken! As the French saying goes "the truth comes from children's mouth" (out of the mouths of babes). ;) Apr 24, 2018 15:44:07 GMT 9

Mayken: My daughter's ml homework for this week included baking a cake - there's a cake in the story they read, and after each chapter there are questions and tasks, and the current chapter has the step-by-step recipe. She's to bring the cake to school too. May 1, 2018 23:48:48 GMT 9 *
Amy: What a nice original homework! Makes such a change from standard homework, and I wouldn't be surprised if kids remember more from it! :) I like your bilingual school Mayken! Lucky little girl, and lucky Mummy! :D May 2, 2018 0:00:43 GMT 9 *
Nellie: Yum Mayken! May 4, 2018 4:28:07 GMT 9
Mayken: ml cake homework update: About half the class brought cake (8 out of 15), not all of them were the cake from the book recipe, but my daughter's was the most popular. (Maybe because we added food colouring and topped it with chocolate icing and smarties?) May 4, 2018 5:58:10 GMT 9
Adam Beck: Cake is definitely my favorite kind of homework! (rofl) May 4, 2018 11:28:51 GMT 9

Jana: One of the best parts of having kids in bilingual school was getting Mother's Day cards in two languages! (With less-than-perfect spelling in both!) Ha! May 15, 2018 9:16:08 GMT 9
Amy: (Twice) Lucky you Jana! :) So nice to read exciting pieces of news like yours! :) May 16, 2018 5:46:25 GMT 9 *
Mayken: I still have that to look forward to, Jana! Mother's Day in our ML country is two weeks later, and the ml teacher goes along with that date. (It was last Sunday in our ml country.) May 16, 2018 5:58:11 GMT 9
