At last school is over and the summer holidays have begun.
Here is Mia (second girl from the left), today she got a certificate from the music school. She plays the harp for two years, and now she passed the first test.
Our new hobby: Shooting with bow and arrows.
When the weather is very hot, Naomi, Selina and Mia like to go to the little river in our village, called “Ilz”. It’s a very great advantage living in a river valley, we only have to take our bath towel and go down the street and than we can go swimming.
Sometimes in the early morning, when I awake, I bounce out of bed, put on my oldest clothes, and must go mushrooming in the forest, without having a breakfast. Then my “hunter and gatherer genes” come out. And after about two hours, wet through with perspiration, pinched with hunger, but happy, I come home with a box full of delicate mushrooms. I’ll kiln-dry some of them for the winter.
