This and That

22 Mar

I didn’t really know what to ‘title’ this post just because there is so much to catch you all up on 🙂  As I sit here on the couch after dropping Henry off at school for his first field trip and laying Thomas down for his morning nap, I catch myself taking a deep breath and relaxing.  Last night, very late, daddy returned from being away for a week (counting the weekend which was the worst part).  He was in Milan, Italy, Oslow, Norway and then Stockholm, Sweden.  It’s so nice to have him here, especially for my emotional wellbeing.

Yes Henry had his first field trip today for school.  We had to drop his car seat off to because they are taking a big charter bus for the entire school (grades Educative Kindergarten, which Henry is in to Primary school grade 2) to a Papiliorama, or butterfly farm.  It’s an all day excursion where they leave at 9 am and return at 3:30pm.  I’m excited to see how the day goes.  Henry has made a bunch of new friends at school, mostly girls 🙂  There are 4 girls that I know of so far that speak English and they are so darn cute, 2 of them being twins.  As I dropped Henry off yesterday, Henry was a little upset and one of the girls who is a little older and has a British accent assured me saying “Don’t worry, I’ll look after him.”

Last Friday Thomas really took off with his walking and ever since he is super independent.  He has to walk everywhere, to and in the elevator in our house, to the car in the garage and all over the park.  I love it and Henry really enjoys it too, almost like ‘wow he can play with me now!’

I’ve looked online all week to try and find Easter activities for the boys to do this weekend but have come up with nothing 😦  So the next best thing; Cailler Chocolate which is about a 45 minute drive from us, is opening it’s doors to the public for free this Sunday because they’ve just had their 1 millionth visitor.  They have a bunch on family and children activities planned so we’re excited to see it.

Next weekend is Easter and I can’t believe it!  We’ve decided to go to our chalet in the Swiss/French Alps and spend Easter there.  Since Italy is only a 45 minute drive from there, we’re going to do a few day trips to there and Zermatt, Switzerland.  I read that the Easter bunny will be skiing in Champery next weekend, so Henry and I hope to get one last run in before the seasons over.

Now for some recent photos:
