On our daily walk, Jonas is very interested in the cows. He says "boeh, 
boeh", looking at them. The weather is quite unpredictable. Yesterday 
rain (above), today sun (below).

for sarah

Yesterday we had a barbecue for my niece's birthday. 
It rained cats and dogs. Luckily the sun came through, in the end.
Below pictures from Sarah, Tom and me. As kids we spent many
summer holidays together. Sweet memories. 
Happy birthday Sarah! <3

Yesterday we went to the zoo. Most of the children from my class
never went to a zoo before and they were looking to the animals
with real marvel.

Today they drew their favorite animal. It was our last day at school.
I will miss the students!
Fish by Bushra, tiger by Leticia, giraffe by Rahima, fish by Zishan,

thank you

Today there came a beautiful package by mail. It contained two
letters and a t-shirt for Jonas.
Thank you so much E.! Such a nice surprise. Receiving a present
while it's not your birthday is great!

in the woods

Today I went to the Hobokense Polder with my students. In the morning
we cleaned up some garbage. And in the afternoon we took a walk.
It was a lovely day. Good to be, for once, in another environment than
the classroom.

Today we drove with our bicycles to the nearest town. There we 
bought some birthday presents and we had a picknick in the park.
Nothing spectacular, and still, it makes me very happy.

ooke's feest

Today we went to Ooke's school. There was a celebration for the
children of the second year, because they "are growing older".
A beautiful and peaceful place, the environment where you dream
of when you think about children going to school.
