Torsdag var der "lunch with a loved one" på luca's skole, og i år kom jeg tidligt, så jeg kunne nå at være med i frikvarteret. Her spiller luca kickball (mens jeg fryser).
Thursday was "lunch with a loved one" at Lucas school and this year I came early so I could be there for recess. Here luca is playing kick ball (while I am cold).
Efter leg udenfor (i stort set al slags vejr året rundt - respekt!) bliver ungerne sendt ind til madpakkerne. Ligesom i DK er der duks der tørrer borde af. I modsætning til i DK bliver hele seancen styret af voksne iført gule sikkerheds veste, der sprøjter rengøringsmidler ud på bordene....
After playing outside (this takes place year round in all types of weather - respect) the kids are sent back inside for lunch. Similar to in Denmark some kids help out with the cleaning afterwards. In contrast to Denmark they are supervised by safety vest clad adults spraying cleaning agents on the tables......
Som tak for hjælpen for man en "puma paw", der bliver lagt i en krukke på kontoret. Hver uge trækker skolelederen lod blandt poterne om små præmier.
When helping out, the kids earn a "puma paw" that goes into a jar in the office. Every week the principle draw one of the paws to give out small prizes.
Det skal ikke forbigås at der var julefest med mit arbejde fredag aften. Bailey var også inviteret sammen med Fuzzy og Ziggie, hvilket heldigvis gik godt. Og "nogen" vandt en selfie stick. Gæt selv hvem!
Friday night was the annual Christmas party with my lab . Bailey was invited together with Fuzzy and Ziggie, which fortunately went well. And "someone" got a selfie stick in the gift game. Guess who!

Well, back to the point. It's been cloudy and gray now in something that feels like several continuous weeks, but Tuesday the sun was out for a total of 10 minutes and it was amazingly how much nicer everything looked. Best of all this happened in those exact 10 minutes where I was biking the last ½ mile to work and I got to soak it all up right there at the bike rack in front of the University. Tuesday was a good day.
