Some photos from the last few days...
To start off, an amusing sign.
Greg and I both said when we saw this, "DNA Spray? that must mean something else."
But our bus driver said "Oh, no, that's exactly what it means." and he explained this bizarre crime-fighting strategy they have adopted in Amsterdam. I won't even try to explain - you can read about it here:
Here's a photo of me and the kids, sitting in the audience for the Dress Rehearsal of Totem. The girls have the clown noses because Daddy and Ante have just passed by in pre-show ("animation").
The play area has been set up at the site, and it's great. There is a tent, and an outside, fenced-in area, which has become an all-hours soccer field. In this picture you can see all 6 of the school kids, playing before classes: from left to right, it's Anthony, Sophia, Nikita, Baz, Ayla, and Igor.
And one last photo of my baby. Every day, when we walk past a certain gift shop, Isa has been admiring, petting, and pining over the large vase of wooden tulips outside. Today I bought some postcards there, and told the shopkeeper how much Isa loved his flowers. "Take one!" he said, "let her pick one out!" So, a truly thrilled-to-pieces little girl picked out her own wooden tulip, which she carried around for the rest of the day, at one point planting it in our local sandbox.
