Last Day of School!!!
Today was just an awesome day for our family. Just about 6 months ago we ventured out to a new land…new language, new culture, new everything. One of the biggest things on our prayer list before, during and after the move was how our kids would handle all of this. How would they do in school? Would they make friends? Would they take to the language? Well, today marked a mile-stone; they finished their class for the year and they both did amazing! All of their teachers said how motivated, patient, fun and smart they both are, and how they really have made an impressive effort to learn and speak German. They have done an amazing job…the two of us couldn’t be any more proud.
Here’s a few pics from the ceremony today, where everyone receives their grade reports, and gets PUBLICLY affirmed on what their teaches find most interesting/great about each and every kid. It really was awesome to hear! (And yes, as a mark of success, it was awesome that we both have learned enough German at this point to have understood almost everything that was said today!!)
