At the airport

Recently, we somehow often ended up reading books about aeroplanes and airports, and so we though it might be a good idea to have a look at it closer. At the airport near to us, there is a park for visitors, so on one nice Saturday morning we set off for a trip. We were welcomed by children playgrounds, a pair of old planes, where we could go inside and a sightseeing hill which the departing and landing aeroplanes could be seen from.

Kindergarden kids

We have two kindergarden kids. Dominik joined Olivia in her lady bug group and he likes it very much. He enjoys music lessons and a big excavator in a sandbox. He already found a new friend, the same tractor enthusiast loving all the machines. Inspired by him, we sewed a tractor on Dominik’s gym bag and we bought slippers with the car pictures on them. The only thing Dominik resists is to sleep after the lunch.

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.

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.
