Argghhhsss!! I hate having no internet connections, it feels like being isolated on Timbaktu!!!
Anyways, here are a string of entries I did the past few days so that I don’t forget…
Monday 7 April
It’s the 2nd week we’re here. I thought we could be adventurous enough to take the train to Konstanz by ourselves, since the day before I didn’t get to do any shopping. 🙂 So I went with the kids, on the 9.30am non-stop train… it took 20+ mins and the kids were well-behaved, doing their Kumon worksheets on the train. 🙂 There was almost no one in the shopping centre, unlike Saturday when it was packed. So we could walk leisurely and check out the stores. The kids, as usual, made their way to the toy store and because we didn’t ship any toys over (except Lego), Jon and I thought we could reward them with toys when they did their work properly.
Homeschooling is quite a challenge, not just for the kids, but for me as well. Lots of discipline required but what I like about it is that it is flexible and there really isn’t much stress. 🙂 We’re slowly getting into it. 🙂
Tuesday 8 April
The forwarders came with our boxes yesterday… that means, food!!! LOL!! You can’t imagine how much food we shipped over, lots of local stuff, canned food, chili. 🙂 Before this, we’ve been eating lots of pasta, pizza, pasta and more pizza. 🙂 So we’re really glad to see luncheon meat, baked beans, fried dace with black beans. :p And RICE!!!! 🙂 I’ll be cooking tonight!! Woohooo!!!!
Oh, and how could I forget, my scrapping supplies are here too! 🙂 I didn’t get to bring much, coz we were severely overweight… but at least, it’s enough to get something done. Looks like I’ll be SB shopping soon! 🙂
