I have evidence that my kids are turning into proper little European children. They like Nutella. More factually, the LOVE Nutella. Yesterday while I was frantically searching the grocery store for the Nutella stash, my sweet children were chanting Nutella, Nutella. Audrey says Tella, Tella. This morning I noticed it's grown into NEW-tella. NEW-tella. Whatever it is, it's adorable and it's another protein source which my almost vegetarian children need.
Speaking of almost vegetarian, the kids are more than sustaining themselves on the wonderful salami here. Eva has requested it in her lunch each day and Audrey for lunch. She calls it lami, again so cute.
More evidence: Yesterday after school Eva asked me what Je m'appelle means. Seems her French lessons are sticking! I told her what it meant and then we practiced the phrase with lots of different names.
One of the parents at Eva's school struck up conversation with me while we were waiting for dismissal. Eva and her daughter are friends. I was so excited to be talking to another adult I almost ate her up. I think I may have scared her off. She is from England and they are here for 3 years. They are relatively new to Lux, as her daughter just started school in September. I was a second away from asking her to the house and to be my best friend when the bell rang announcing dismissal. I realized that from 8:30 am to 6:15pm each day I talk only to the girls. Mostly my 2 year old. No really, it's fine. I'm totally sane.
Sleep update: Eva's school schedule has saved us all. Sleep is about 95% back to normal. That was a tough few days - thanks for listening to my whoas.
My wonderful husband ordered me a cable cord for my camera from Amazon.co.uk. Turns out it is possible and I was just entering something wrong (shocking, I know) in the shipping section. It shipped yesterday! Yipee!
The laundry lesson was a total bust. Think Assist forgot about me. Finally at 2:00pm someone showed me where the laundromat is. Didn't get any laundry done obviously. That is today's chore. Still have the post office to figure out. Tomorrow I think we're going to Bastogne as recommended by Catherine.
