You Only Live Once, This Is How I'm Doing It!

Kids grow up too fast…

I’m having so much fun. The kids are way cute. The boys especially try and speak English so much which is surprising because they hardly wanted to at all a year ago when I was here. It’s so funny too because when Morten is trying to speak English, he mixes English words with Dutch words, naturally since he doesn’t know all the English words, but he says the Dutch words like they’re English. It makes sense because many Dutch words are very simular to English ones but it’s halarious to hear and a lot of times makes it almost impossible to understand what he’s trying to say to me. If he’s explaining anything complicated to me I almost have to tell him to only speak Dutch so that I know what in the world he’s talking about! lol. It’s awesome that they’re speaking so much English though.

They’re so grown up in so many ways, it’s crazy. Caroline and Timo are both in swimming and Morten is done already! Caroline is so funny too because she’s a bit afraid of the water and so when they’re doing any of the exercises she will only do them on the steps. “The water is too deep” she says, but it only goes up to her waist in the deepest part, haha. She’ll get the hang of it and she’s doing really well considering when I’d take her swimming it took her forever not to cling to me in terror. Timo on the other hand is doing great. He’s already on the last level that he needs to be in order to get his certificate.

Here are some pictures from today and yesterday:

Scooter Trick

Morten doing a “wheelie” with the scooter at the school playground.

Running up the Wall

Morten running on the wall on the way home from school. What a stuntie, hé?

Running up the wall too

Not to be outdone, Timo’s got to show off too.

Mirror Mirror

“Mirror, Mirror on the wall, who’s the fairest one of all?”

Lip Gloss!

“I am!!!”


The cats, Sam, Puck and Tara (but don’t ask me which one is which, lol)…not getting into trouble at the moment, hehe.

Kids and Kitties

They sure do love their cats, a little too much sometimes! lol

Tomorrow I’m free so I’m not sure exactly what I’m going to do. I’ll probably go downtown since I haven’t been yet. Then Thursday and Friday, I think, Caroline gets to stay home from school with me! yay! I’m not sure exactly what we’re going to do yet but I’m sure shopping will be involved, maybe we’ll even go somewhere with the train…who knows! Whatever we do it’ll be great to spend time with my girl *smile*



First day
