Trips around Terchova

After two years, we travelled to Terchova again. We went to the town lookout Terchova heart (we learned it’s name later from a guide of the Terchova train) and it gives a wonderful view of the town and the surrounding hills. We made again a trip to Vychylovka, Dominik still enjoyed the historical train and the local sheep. Then we rode a cable car from Vratna uphill and hiked over the Chleb hill, Steny (Walls) and Poludňový grúň to the cottage on Grúň.

By the sea

We have already forgotten that we were at the sea, but Dominik is still talking about the big bucket pouring water into the pool. Finally, both our kids swam in the sea and were anxiously watching little crabs running at the bottom. Olivia took part in all creative activities (she made bracelets, paper fish and octopus, and she painted a litttle rabbit) and in the meantime, Dominik was exploring the swimming pools.

Dominik is 3 years old

Dominik is already three years old. When we congratulated him in the morning, he only frowned at us. He accepted the fact that he has his birthday first with a cake in the afternoon. But on the next day, he celebrated proudly and enthusiastically with his friends in the nursery. Two months ago he started to ride a bicycle. He cannot start riding by himself, but then he rides great and Olivia is happy as well, because we can finally ride together at about the same speed.

New in May

Firstly, we celebrated a May festival in the nursery. Chidlren helped to prepare and paint a maypole and they learned a new song. Then, on the day of the celebration, the maypole was errected, the children garnished gingerbread hearts, made a picnic in the garden and played. We made also a trip to the zoo in Munich. We only dressed lightly because of the warm weather and our memories of concrete surfaces without any shade in another zoo and we set off in the morning.

Creative Easter

While we were waiting for the spring, we spent a lot of time doing creative activities. Children painted and couldn’t wait when the easter bunny finnaly comes. Once again, we visited an animal park in Poing. I think we will make this a tradition, because it’s really amazing to see all the baby animals there. Then we spent the holidays in the field (someone takes his kids to the football match, someone to the tractor).

Olivia is 5 years old

Olivia is 5 years old. She started celebrating with her grandparents in the morning and in the afternoon, she enjoyed the chocolate birthday cake with her friend. On the next day, she successfuly finished her swim course. I have already sewed a little sea horse on her swimsuit. On the last lesson, the children swam in their pyjamas to find out what it is like to swim in the clothes. Olivia did it perfectly well to my pleasure.

Olivia can swim

Since October, Olivia goes swimming once a week. The goal is to get a see horse (that means, that she can swim 25 meters, she has the courage to jump into the water and she can dive and pull the ring out of the water). Last week, she managed to swim 25 metres.

Dominik is two and half

Dominik like singing. In the car, I always turn on a song he wishes and then he sings all the way home. Currently, he prefers to eat pasta in any form and corn. It’s similar to the time when he wanted to eat only bread or yogurt whole the week. Now he takes pasta from the fridge even for breakfast. Unlike Olivia, he first does something and then he thinks about the consequences.

Full December

In December, there was always a lot going on. I think that the first starting event was on Saint Martin’s day in November, when the gingerbread goats are used to be baked and the children are looking forward to lantern procession in the evening. Afterwards at home, we were still listening to the Saint Martin’s songs untill the new ones about Saint Nicholas came. In the meantime, the children began to open an Advent calendar and they also kept getting the small sweet surprises on all the courses.

Winter for a few days

This year, the winter has come only for a few days, but every moment we have made the most of it. Kids would love to shovel snow every morning and Dominik is excited about sledding (I think he does not remember it from the last year). And we built a lovely snowman.
