Last week - good and bad, like in life...

Last week we had good and bad, a mixture that kept us busy, worried, sad and happy! Last saturday, we had some guests and a very tasty BBQ, but also we invited our guests to come with us for the "open door day", at some schools (kindergartens) that invited us for that date. Here, there is the custom that schools and kindergatens organize an "open door day" and they invite the families with children for a visit, so that people can choose the school that seems most suitable for their children. We visited just two, because the second one won our heart, and we were so lucky that this school is the closest to our place also (just 4-5 min. walking!). In the moment we entered the door, we were welcomed very nicely, by smiling, young people with obvious interest for their work and a lot of love for children. The vice-director took his time (more than 1 hr.) to give us a complete tour of the school kindergarten and school)and show us everything, explain us all, give us a small treat, introducing us all the staff, making us familiar with the surroundings, the beautiful playiong ground, all the rooms, all the facilities, etc!! And what was more important, we could hardly take Luca away from there!And then, it hit us!! Our baby is gonna go to "school"!! He is not a little baby anymore, he starts his life, first steps in life!! Overhelming! Sunday we have been to Leuven, just a short visit, and did some very good shopping!



Monday-dentist day! I felt nothing, had a lot of fun with my dentist, so....too good to be true, yet it happened!
After a couple of days - chiropractor! Yes, I got myself a nice lumbago! Again lot of fun (not when she cracked my joints thou...), and after the session was done, my wonderful husband came with an wonderful idea: what about going to Durbuy ( I was complaining that I miss already the mountains since last month when we were in Cochem), spending the night there, and coming back next day! Yupppiiii!!! Durbuy is the smallest town in the world, it is located in the Ardennes, and I love it sooo much! Even though it is so small, all the corners, every inch is a "picture"!! We took a lot of pictures, therefore I made a folder and put them on Picasa, you must know by now to find them in the slide bar!It was a fairy tale! The window of the hotel was facing the "market place", and I enjoyed to see the people and the restaurants in the night! next day we left in a village that was around 20 km away from Durbuy, and we found there a brocante (flea market). We enjoyed a lot, it was really pitoresque to see so many people coming to see this flea market in such a little village, where the streets didn't even have names!! And it was full of cars and visitors!! Normally I don't like such places, find the objects there old and ugly, and I wouldn't spend 1 euro there! Pascal likes them, he still hopes that one day he is gonna buy something very valuable with very little money (there are a lot of legends about that....). And now, here we are back, ready for another week!! Oh yes, at the end of the week we have a very important party: Luca will be 2 years old!! We bought already the main gift - a new bike!! But don't tell him!!!

So many information in a few lines, I can't say anything but WOW! Sssso, I should've learned so far that if I don't hear from you - that's because you're wandering around some town closer or further, but always so interesting!
The pics are talking for you, those are great places to visit and I felt like I went back in time. Those nice streets must hide a quiet life and nice people :-) Though, what I liked most was that statue sitting down next to that building :D.
I'm glad all your medical issues had a happy ending, that's why i was worried about. That open doors-day is a great thing for the parents living there, Luca is growing up so fast indeed, he'll be 2 in a few days, a real gentleman; seeing him in pics confirms that time is running so fast... and Pascal, I have no words for this man who really knows to love a woman :-) and to be here for all her needs, no matter what kind are them. It was so gentle of him to take you two in this really beautiful trip!
I could say a thousand more things but i gotta end this, so welcome back and good luck in preparing Luca's birthday (I know it's close to my dad's birthday on 7May but i forgot when exactly, so please tell me :P) Hugggggs!

Hey Dili!! Thanks for all your kind, wonderful words! Pascal is also happy about them as he makes tremendous efforts to make us (me and Luca) happy so he likes when he is appreciated. Luca was born on 8th of May;)As for the medieval streets, they certainly "hide" nice people, but quiet...not really (in a good way). On the street where you see the black and white photos (with the chairs, and along the street), it was a woman with a big BBQ and some dry sausage that were smelling very good. Pascal thought she was selling something, so he asked what it was. She said it is for a party, but if we pass there later we can enjoy the music and a glass of wine also! So, this was a private party, in the street! We did look later on, but as you know we don't drink...and we came from dinner...we just looked! About the jeans fashion...really??!!!! I didn't notice!! :)

Yes, Pascal really deserves everybody's appreciation for what it does and for the way he behaves. You all will always be very happy 'cause you love each other so much, and it;s hard not to when every day offers you a new surprise :D. Well, those streets hide gtreat people, party in the street you say - like in telenovelas hehe.. I think the latino blood is running through my veines and - even it's about another culture - people should be as warm as those are with each other wherever they live...
