Halloween 2007

The costume party at school.
Sophia "forgot" her Koukala doll the day of the party (a bad day to forget given the ghosts & goblins that were at school that day) so she had to use another dolly for the remainder of the party.

She could have dressed as Snow White,
But she has declared her Snow White costume to be just for dancing.

With the pumpkins at Swansons in Seattle. Our only pumpkins for the year, although the pumpkin soup is fantastic in Munich!

Science at the Deutsches Museum

Hoarding the boats...
Building Dams...
Stepping in the water...

Sophia & Troy took a morning last weekend & went to play at the Deutsches Museum in the kids club section. Needless to say they both had a blast.

I had heard that there was a water section to play with & given our family history of kids getting wet while on outings with Daddy, I encouraged Troy to bring extra clothes with her. Unfortunately Sophia stepped in the river of water, getting her shoes & socks wet ~ the only things Troy had not brought a second pair of! Oh well, it was a fun, exhausting day for both of them...

The latest from Sophia

Another week has started in Munich, bringing with it some beautiful weather! We have been trying to spend lots of time outside while we can, because the snow is suppossed to start at the end of the week again.

Sophia has been very funny lately. We don't really have TV stations right now (BBC News & CNN World aren't really child friendly) so we've been watching a few selected videos on nights when we are having a little down time. She likes to first watch in English, then French, Spanish, Greek and then German. (We usually don't make it thru the English versions...)
We went for a long bike ride on Saturday, and ended up stopping at the Munich Zoo. The animals were all in hiberbation, but the rides were working & we all had a very funny time going on the train, the old Zoo cars, and (Sophia's favorite) a Lightening McQueen!
