Joshua’s German School

Joshua heading off to his “private German school”…

The two kindergartens in our village are completely full, so I asked my landlord if she knew anyone who taught private German lessons. I really wanted Joshua to be able to have more exposure to the language. Lo and behold, she is a retired school teacher and since her two boys are grown up and her husband passed away, she misses little children. Joshua has been going to her house for lessons twice a week and just loves it. He feels so grown up being able to put on his backpack and walk all by himself. 

He even incorporates his silly sense of humor into the lessons. Below his a banana for a mouth and you can see he tried to write the word banana. This is so much better than sending him to kindergarten, and I am so happy he has this opportunity!
