188 Winter and extra vacation

December 31, 2008

We decided on keeping the kids home one extra week after the Hanukkah vacation. We want to pay them back for the missed vacation when we were sick. It’s also cold and raining and they will probably not go out at all at kindergarten. If they anyway watch TV at kindergarten instead of playing outside.. they could better play and watch TV at home.. and play in the garden in between the showers. There is no use sending them to kindergarten in this situation. Kids don’t get sick from playing outside in cold and rainy weather – if they are just dressed warm enough. The more time they spend outside – the healthier. They are rather getting sick from spending a lot of time inside with other kids – sharing all the viruses in a humid environment. duh! There are a lot of people who are sick now.. at least one in almost every family. So I think it’s good to protect the kids from all that too – as long as it’s possible. We’ve been sick enough!

On Sunday we’ll let them go back. We can’t keep them home forever just because it’s winter.

This weekend we’re gonna celebrate my birthday. 🙂 I’m getting old!

Btw.. Happy new year!
For me new years eve means nothing except for that I have to learn to write the date differently. I’ll have to practice this evening.. 🙂



  1. Have fun with the kids. So far I think the flu has left us too. Knock on wood. Happy New Year to you and your family. It’s been great to meet you this year.

  2. Happy Birthday!

  3. Happy Birthday!
