As I already told you, in spite of all the terrible news over the days in Japan we are trying to maintain the natural flow of days here with the children. So we are having Birthday parties and this one was a special one. Moritz turned 10. I mean 10, that may sound strange for people having toddlers or grown-ups at home but for me this is really a number. Our eldest turned 10 and time ran so fast. I am sounding like an old aunt saying this but that is how I feel (not the old aunt thing but the time-running thing). I see the years just running by when i am looking at our children. Although Markus and me are also getting visibly older I don"t feel it. I just see it in the children. Like I am staying like I was when I gave birth to them and they are just moving on.
So a swimming party we had at the local swimming hall with entertainment for a while to play water games and building a floss to survive the artificial waves in the pool. Of course I made a cake. In a hurry and not perfect but I loved the idea of a gigantic swimming pool with these ball dividers and a funny swimmer.
After a few hours with 10 children in the pool I was done and now wall was painted that day - believe me!
To finish off for today I will let you see a bit of our new house in Seoul. It has a lot of light and open spaces and I love that it also has a view towards the city. it will look perfect at nighttime with all the lights. And the kitchen is great with so much workspace and the adjacent dining room. because kitchen and dining area are always the herat of the home where things are eaten, talked over, homework is made and we are having endless talks just sitting there after meals or after breaffasts on the week ends. I am so much looking forward to putting all our belongings into the rooms and take over the space to make it our new home!
have a wonderful week end! You will find me here on a ladder, painting some walls!
