Washington, D.C. - Charles Town, West Virginia
So, for this one time Jaime, you don't have to translate our blog into English. Now how's that? All our German readers will have to do the translation instead. I believe that's quite a good exercise for them, to refresh their English language skills :-)
Today we visited my cousin Brenda and her husband James, who is lucky enough to live together with five wonderful ladies. Eliza (my grandniece), Jaime (niece), Kelly (also niece), Alisha (niece again, but not at home today) and of course Brenda. This sounds like a house of fun to you? Sure it is. Eliza (1,5 years old) discovered today, that it feels so wooooow, when you turn yourself superfast in circles. Particularly, when you stop all of a sudden and the world goes on and on turning endlessly. Jaime, who just turned 12, whished herself a saxophon for christmas. Since then she managed to teach herself playing this amazing instrument. Wow! When her teacher in school gave her an assignment to write about something she likes, she chose to write about Lindt Chocolate. (Well, that could be me.) Kelly has so many medals, for sports, grades and for the very best science project ever, that she almost cannot count them. What is also almost impossible to count, are her bruises from soccer. But the pain paid off, as she soon will fly over to California to compete in the championships there. Go Kelly!
We had a great day with you guys. I hope we'll see each other again in the not so far future. Thank you for everything! And as we are teachers, here come a question at the end: Can you guess what I'm holding in my Hand? Look at the middle picture in the second row below this text. You get the answer, when you click on that picture.
