L was sick yesterday and I kept him home another day. This meant he went with me today when I finally checked out the German School I want him to go to once a week.
As I haven written before, I’m failing to raise a bilingual child. Find out why: Raising a Bilingual Child: Go Ahead, You Try It!
The school had an Open House and we got to tour it. It’s small and intimate, just lovely. The one thing L was excited to see was the gym.
I noticed and pointed out to L several things that are very German and reminded me of going to school myself. For one thing, all the toys in the Kindergarten classes are made out of wood, not plastic, and that was so familiar to me and refreshing to see.
We left with a little Steiff teddy bear in a Schultuete — look at how little L was when he received his first and second Schultuete from me — and L said he “kind of” liked the school. That’s promising.
Afterward, we went to a diner for lunch, which happened to be just across the street from where Grandma works. So we saw her briefly and then headed home again.
