The igloo!

Well, we have been back from Christmas holiday for a few weeks and gotten back into the school groove.  Zoe bikes about 2km each way to and from school daily, which gives us all a lovely bit of free exercise for the day.  She gets dropped off and picked up in the school courtyard which doubles […]

Concerts and Field Trips

Zoe has been having a great end of school year joining the rest of her class at the spring concert, a field trip to the science museum, and field day! Her concert was nice.  The second grades sang Rose Rose, Kookaburra, and Come and Let us Play and Sing.  She seemed in her element on […]

Spring!

Eggs

In our travels it was tough for our new vegetarian to find things to eat.  There is a lot of meat in SE Asia, but also a lot of eggs as an option.  But since Zoe has claimed to not like eggs for a long time it was tough for her. So, when we got […]

Grasslands

Well I messed up Zoe’s specials schedule but it worked out in the end.  You see,  it’s the new quarter at the base elementary school which means they switch around the days of the specials… I suppose that keeps it fair with Mondays and Fridays being the go-to days off. Anyway,  I got the new […]
