November 25, 2008

Today we all got up real early, and it was a good thing we did. All the streets where covered with ice. We had to walk to get to school if you can called it that. There where accidents all over town and you could see a lot of people falling. We went just bit by bit and we came in a bit late just like almost everyone. Alicia was really worried this afternoon she would have her birthday party with her friend and she was afraid that the might not be coming. But at 12,30 the first one arrived and the rest came just a few minutes later. It was a great party, first the had lunch and went to play a little with the snow. In mean time we had prepared the table and when the came back they painted their own dishes with special paint. They had a great time and we had cake and presents to. The had a great time. But most important of all Alicia had a great time…..

What a day…. We got up early this morning because as usually Alex had his swimming lesson at 8,45 in the morning. When we got up and looked out of the window everything was white, it had been snowing and it was as if there was this huge white blanket that had fallen down the sky. We got dressed and when we where going through the street with my bike you could here nothing but the snow cracking underneath my wheels. When he had finished his swimming lesson we rushed home for a coffee and some breakfast. After that we dressed real warm and went to the harbor because to day is a big day for all the kids Sinterklaas is arriving in town. We made it in time, and Alex stood right in front . He was so happy. Alicia looks at it different know, but she got together with her friends and had a great time. After his arrival and Alex had said hello to him we rushed back to the swimming pool, because Alicia had to swim for her B certificate. And she passed. She did great. In just 3 months she got her A and B certificate. We’re so proud of her. After she had finished we went home and Alex gave her a present. That night we all went to bed early and with a huge smile.

Yes our little girl just is 10 years old. She is still our little girl but she is getting big now, she’s growing to fast. I can still remember the day she was born like it was yesterday. Look at her now so big, she is doing well at school and is friends with everyone. We can’t complain, I feel so lucky to be her mother.
