Catalan work-out


nothing like entering a whole new world of vocabulary! Goodness, but this is quite a and structural stuff is a new area for learning. My head! I didn't know the word for drains before nor for hydraulic mortar.

Here's a photo of the inside of one of the front doors.

I had a long talk with the agents who represent our landlords, and I know quite a bit more about the entire process....

OK, moving away from the current obsession,

Eldest and I are still working out the ground rules. She had to go over to another kid's house to work on a project this aft. OK. It's in the next town, hmmm, a long hot walk and then she will be picked up at a gas station. Less enthusiastic hmmmming. She doesn't have a phone number nor contact information for the family, not even their last names, neither of the two names.

*Inhale in, yadda yadda yadda*

No plan for getting home. We have no car.

Sit down my darling, we need to have a little conversation................

We got it worked out, and I think she knows that she has to get this info before she can go out.

She's home and fine btw.

Lessons gradually being learned.

You set those ground rules early and firmly – only later do you bend a little... ;)
But NEVER about going somewhere with no contact info!

Is that a cross on the inside of that door?

So many things to think about with kids now. We grew up in the era when we'd leave the house and come home when the street lights came on. Of course the "where" of where you are living adds more challenging rules and stipulations. Isn't motherhood the hardest "job" you've ever had?!

Two new sets of vocabulary, sounds like.

Isn't it funny how kids seem to think this kind of "absolutely no details whatsoever" is perfectly okay? They think the unexpected is always something good.

Beth, check, double check...

Bodhi, I have to confess, I always had to tell my Mom where I was, and where I was going. Grew up in a city.

JG, It is lovely that they think the world is such a wonderful kind place, and sad they have to learn that it isn't always.....unexpected is usually something good though, no?
