The biggest challenge of today has been keeping the girls happy without letting them trash the apartment. Difficult.
Thankfully Anne made things easier by cooking us lunch. So, we're up there eating and she says, "I found out something interesting about health insurance-" and Maggie interrupts with "BOOOOORING!"
Ha! What a little devil! I've been cracking up all day thinking about it.
Drop-off at Kindergarten today was good. She was still sad, she really likes her teacher and her (female) classmates (the boys annoy her. And smell, apparently. One day she said to me, "I smelled something bad at school today. It was the boy next to me. Boys stink." Little boys, she clarifies.) She has nothing against older men, like Philip (she called him her "favorite guy" the last time we went rock climbing. He's at least 30, so I'm just a little worried...)
Nina is less sentimental, but she's going to miss Austria too. Frau Manhart wants the class to Skype with Nina some time, which might be a little difficult with the time difference and early dismissal times in Austria, but I'm sure we'll figure something out. Nina also says she misses her classmates already, and a bunch of them gave her presents today. So sweet!
Tonight we'll sleep on a train for the first time! We're going to wake up in Germany, I believe, and then transfer to another train that will take us into Paris. So exciting! Cross your fingers that we all sleep well tonight!
