Today was the first day of school in Nordrhein-Westfalen. The kids were nervous, but excited. On the way to school I told the kids how proud I am of them for being brave in a new country, and Meg said that she really likes life here, because she learned to ride a bike and the ice cream is so great and cheap.
On Monday we got the news that the kids got accepted into the after school program, which should be great for everyone, even though the kids were initially not very excited. They will get help with their homework, and have more time to play with other kids and practice speaking German.
