School’s over. Award time!

Today was the last day at school. My girls are the best. I am so proud of them! I was never that good at school, well, we never had any rewards at school after all.. I am not surprised I didn’t have much motivation to do better. My daughters are the ones to follow – they’re good at maths and science, they speak, write and read in two languages, and English – probably already better than me 😉 they LOVE to read, their writing is just awesome – for example  Auguste (my older one 7y.) writes what she learned at school: “Exaggerate – if you exaggerate , you say that something is bigger or better than it really is”… and so on.. I’m like..O M G.  And my younger one – Skirmante (6y.) got an invitation to her classmate’s birthday party and she wrote a message back to her: ” Sorry, I cannot come because I will go to Lithuania”..  So, last year she was the one to take the Pupil’s of the year award and this year our Auguste got it! I am not e-x-a-g-g-e-r-a-t-i-n-g – they ARE the best! I am so happy they love to learn and they have such great teachers Miss Gill and Mrs Walker, who supported them so much, Mrs Clancy from the last year – she still makes my girls smile and is a super warm person. I know how important is to like a teacher, then you like the subject and the school! Well, one of the main reasons I went to UNI to study Biology  was that I liked my biology teacher and I liked biology and the teacher’s approach to it  😉 So – a huge thank you to all the teachers and school workers who made school a lovable place ❤  My girls and I wanted to make something special on this occasion so we spent all evening making one of Lithuanian traditional desserts  – The Anthill! It’s not so complicated as it seems but it requires lots of time.. especially when you make it for the first time 😀 (my mum is way better than me). I could post a whole post about making it from literally beating the dough to open fire burning honey on the gas stove… 😀 yes, it’s that adventurous! If you’d fancy a recipe drop me a note 😉 And now – let the summer holidays begin!

Sandra ❤

Another lucky winner of free mini photo shoot! – Sandra, and her handsome young gentleman – Joris 🙂 and a very smart one as a matter of fact! He must be a basketball fan because having a bauble in his hand he didn’t take long and found a basket – my laundry rack 😀 That was amazing .. After I did Sandra a hairdo and a make up we got out in a park and spend chilly but lovely afternoon together

Skeleton story

My younger daughter (5y) says with tears in her eyes:

– I never get any rainbow points at school because I don’t know anything about Skeleton.. 😦

It was so sad I just had to do something and quickly. Well, it didn’t turn out to be so quick because I had to use what we had in our “leftovers” box, I  had to look for the names of bones myself 🙂 oh boy, some of them sound very strange in English 🙂 .. We searched online, learned, constructed carefully, bones, joints, and he came alive!  Pretty awesome model he was. Though he couldn’t move himself (he had no muscles you know..) but he had a very good heart and when I was kissing my daughter goodnight she told me:

– You know mummy, I love him.. 

And it was worth everything. We named him – The Recycled Skeleton 🙂 Don’t you think he’s got something?
