Travel and Explore

I am so proud of my sweet girl. She grows up bilingual(ly) and goes to an international school. Since German is only taught as a foreign language, we have to work on her German almost every day to make sure she keeps up with the Austrian curriculum. It is not always easy to come home at 4pm just to do another lesson and then do her normal English homework. She understands the importance of it and it is a trade off for being able to go to such a great school, which she adores. 

Here she is, exploring the German language, traveling through spelling, grammar, composition and reading. 

I used the November kit from Swirlydoos and the sketch challenge from Artful Delight.

A few weeks ago, I posted about making Christmas cards with DD's class. Well, last week we did it and here is her work of art. 

Here are some more from other kids - we had lots of fun, especially with the embossing with my Cuttle Bug. The boys thought it was "way cool".

Off to get some work done!
Thanks for stopping by. 
All the best, 


  1. Such a great page, Elisabeth. I bet it is kind of tiresome to have extra homework to do. You are right, if you don't practice and use it, you will lose it. How fun to spend some time in her class room making cards! :) They are all wonderful!
