A walk at the White House

We went for a walk in the area around the White House. The fence at the White House is being repaired so we walked to the other side for a better view.


Arlington County Fair 2019

We went to the Arlington County Fair today, our second visit. Last year we took the bakfiets but that's still at the repair shop. We took the shuttle service from Virginia Square metro and that was awesome: it was a true yellow school bus. The boys were super excited.

The first ride Leo and Adrian did, a merry-go-round with small jeeps, was serious business for Leo. It took him several rounds before he dared give us a big smile.

The second ride was one with various cars. The dudes chose the fire truck, of course, and they enjoyed being in front and steering.

When Adrian saw the fire brigade where kids were getting dressed up his was adamant to do that. The boys were dressed in a beautiful fire brigade costume and really liked it.

When we were leaving, the bus back to Virginia Square had just arrived, so I went in quickly. Then, crying behind me, Adrian. He had lost his balloon -- it was flying in the sky. Oma offered to get him a new one and so they went back inside, and we took a later bus.


Tip Top

I found a new game for the Veilig Leren Lezen reading course for the boys. It's one of the assignments kids can do when the teacher is busy helping others, with a fun way to self-assess the result.

We played the game today after lunch, while Jaap and Mieke went for a walk in DC.
