USA

5 October 2010

Hello. I’m leaving later this morning for New York. Got a load of stuff to do while I’m in the US. Will report back during the visit. Gonna miss Berlin while I’m away… I say Berlin but I mean mein family… The next few month are going to be intense. Clay is a trooper. He is loving Kinderladen. We watched him through the window today, hard at work, adding pigment to water. It was so cool to see him totally focused and in his own space. Nora made an amazing iphoto book for the Kinderladen as a present to them. It’s 44 pages and full of pictures she took on the first 2 weeks she spent with clay in there while he was settling in. This is a different place to the kinderladen we were in originally. That w=one turned out to be nicht so gut. This one is a whole lot better.
It’s getting colder once again in Berlin. I am beginning to look around for a place to work. There are a load of cool spaces in Berlin. I have had my room downstairs but want to get out of the house now. Exciting. Ok… to bed.

    I do a lot of volunteering at my kids’ schools and, even though they are getting big (9 and 12), one of my favorite things to do is unobtrusively observe them in this “other” habitat. As a parent, you get so used to controlling their environment, even subconsciously, so it’s pretty cool to see how they act and react in their own world. It really makes you realize that they are their own people, separate from you and the family.
