Its been an eventful year so far for our little family in Hungary! The kids have tried new things and been involved in tons of activities in the community and at school. First was break dancing class that both kids enjoyed so much – thanks to the volunteer teaching of a skilled break dancer in our community. Volunteers also provided athletics opportunities (soccer, basketball, floorball) as well as Scouting at the school and many fun educational activities during Activity Period.
We had several assemblies at school, one of which included a beautiful demonstration by the local aerial gymnast dancers. An impressive feat to behold by these young Hungarian girls!
Didi’s class read to groups at school. Her reading has improved so much this year – it’s so fun to listen to her inflection and animation!
Basketball went well over the winter months, and we were thrilled to be able to give the kiddos exposure to the game, in clinic-style practices.
The kids had a variety of field trips over the spring – and this one for Didi to the observatory was especially memorable!
And Beau’s field trip to Somlo castle was super fun, too!
Didi tried ballet for the first time. She’s very flexible and coordinated, so it seemed to be going well, but she decided to hold off until next year. Perhaps when little sister joins her it will be a different story!
Activity periods at school have developed skills like chess and robot making…
And Beau both kids have been enjoying soccer this year – especially Beau! When the weather doesn’t cooperate with soccer plans, the kids go inside for floorball. It resembles floor hockey but has a euro twist. The kids love it, too!
