Summer school is in full swing.
Reading in English,
Writing in English,
All that fun stuff that they don't get in the normal school year.
We also do Portuguese school work to help prepare them for the following grade. We only do it for a few hours each day, but it's enough to keep them busy in the morning hours. The Portuguese kids sleep til noon each day, so that gives us a few uninterrupted hours of school time each morning. Because after lunch time (2:00 for the Portuguese) we can guarantee that our house will fill with neighborhood kids.
Today however, they were a bit distracted by these cuties. We eventually had to put them outside away from my students because nothing was getting accomplished. (Even I was distracted taking pictures!)
These little boogers are just about ready for new homes. If anyone of you reading are in the Minho area and would like a kitty, just let me know.
We have a friend who is moving into a new apartment. The landlord had this piece of furniture in the apartment that my friend didn't want. So the landlord gave her permission to give it to someone who promised to take care of it. I had no idea it would be so pretty! I'm thrilled with this new addition in my kitchen!
I'm not an antique person, but I'm sure it's antique and the stamp inside says it's from Heidelberg, Germany. I've not had any luck looking online for information.
Any advice from you guys that know about this sort of stuff???
I'm in love with it..and I don't even know what you call it!
Maybe it's a buffet?? What do you think?
