We had a lovely weekend.
Friday night we watched Newsies. The kids are really into musicals right now. They love Annie, Mary Poppins and the Sound of Music but Newsies didn’t really do it for them. I am not sure what other musicals would be good for youngsters. The only things I can think of are Chitty Chitty Bang Bang and Pete’s Dragon. There’s got to be more than that!
Saturday was Jie-jie’s suzuki family day. From 9 to 1 we sat in on suzuki group instruction and the violins and cellos treated us to a concert. When we got home the kids played outside. We had lentil soup for dinner.
Today we hung out/cleaned at home then went to dance class and then for fika (coffee) at a friends place. The kids spent loads of time outside jumping on our neighbors’ trampoline. This evening we finished reading The Secret Garden (I’m so glad they liked it!). After the kids went to bed I got to chat with my baby brother who became a first-time father this past week.
Oh, the joyful mundane!
