Lara will be going to Costa Rica for a year as an exchange student, and she had a going-away party today that we were invited to. (Though Stella stayed at home with Amy since she wasn't feeling well.)

Good luck, Lara! And have a great time there!

Lara’s birthday

Yesterday was Lara’s birthday, and her mother had organised a surprised party for her, to which quite a few people, including we three, were invited.

They had a karaoke game running on the new PlayStation Lara had got for her birthday, and several people had fun with that—including me. I wasn’t particularly good at it, I felt, but it was fun just the same!

Getting there and back was mixed: since it was a public holiday in Germany and trains ran according to the Sunday timetable, trains ran all the way to Harburg and we didn’t have to change in Buchholz; however, they only ran every two hours instead of every hour.

Amy fell asleep in her stroller on the way there, which was perhaps just as well, since it made it easier for her to stay awake during the evening, even when it was later than her usual bedtime.

The icon is a "Schmetterfliege"—a kind of a cross between a butterfly and a housefly, I suppose.

(The word doesn't translate very well: it's composed of [the translations of] the "butter" bit of "butterfly" and the "fly" bit of "fly", but in English that would give "butterfly" again….)

Art by Lara.
