Here we are at our Geneva Church building... we love our ward.
We're continuing the kids' piano lessons here... Kenny especially enjoys hopping up to the keyboard after his brother and sister play. It's fun to see them learning... and - as my brother says - starting to develop a talent that will be the start of "many years of learning and playing and accompanying and serving." It makes me so happy to think that my parents invested YEARS and COUNTLESS dollars in our piano lessons, and it has paid off in so many ways. Music is such a large part of our lives, and brings so much joy to all of us. Kassie is working on learning "Jesus was no Ordinary Man" that she wants to sing as a solo in church. (It helps that she'll be getting 175 merits to do it, which will go towards purchasing a Ninjago lego set she's been wanting. Hey - whatever motivation works) 8-)
Today was the last official day of school for the kids - Stephen finished his final assignment, making this 4 full weeks of completed homeschooling! And Kas and Kenny just have their end-of-school parties tomorrow. So today we went to the American Store in the nearby village of Nyon to celebrate and let them get a few rare goodies... skittles and rootbeer. Then off to get trottinettes (road scooters) to play on outside this summer. Kassie's friend Isolde, who takes circus classes, is going to teach Kas how to ride a unicycle... we're all quite anxious to see how that goes! And Kenny's almost got the ripstick down. I love how fast kids learn things.
