Our lilac is blooming! Unser Flieder blüht!
Yesterday, on our way to Alfred, we did some "carschooling." We normally don't listen to CDs and tapes very much on car trips, but yesterday was a good opportunity to do some German studies. My husband had picked out a CD about Goethe, called Ich bin so guter Dinge by Peter Härtling. The children were exposed to many poems and also some prose by Goethe.
Today Veronika and I made a May basket. One of my favorite craft books for small children is Earthways: Simple Environmental Activities for Young Children. After making the basket, Veronika gathered some flowers in it.
