Learning highlights: September 2018

Mathemagenic

September is a busy month: as school holidays are over there is a time to celebrate the beginning of new learning year with Not Back To School Parties and to sort out the routines of regular sports, clubs and other activities. Third year of online math for Alexander: learning to use new tools. A trip to Den Haag: English, pinquins and catching up with old-time friends. Harvesting in the garden, lots of raspberry smoothies, apple pies and still tomatoes and cucumbers.
