Heute war Schwimmbad tag mit die kinde. (Or in other words, today was the day that we took all of the kids from the kindergarten to the Swimming pool.)
It was actually very nice. At first my goal was to not get my hair wet, because I didn't really feel like it, but that didn't work out so well. Leon, and Samuel were chasing me around the shallow end haha, grabbing onto me. Then Leon started splashing me, and then I just gave up and dove under the water. Felt good. This week, my last week, we are finally getting some nice weather. Tomorrow we might have a bit of rain, but other than that its going to be warm and sunny.

I've started to tell the kids at the kindergarten that this is my last week. I keep on telling them 'Ich gehe nach Canada Montag' It's actually pretty sad, but their summer vacation starts in a week and a half anyways. I just thought it would be smart to warn them in advance instead of showing up this Friday and saying... this is my last day! Not a good idea. Anyways, they really are a great group of kids.

Today Gabi and I took a trip to Basel, Switzerland. It's about 20 minutes from Fischingen or so. I ended up buying my first piece of clothing. I've bought many other small things during my stay here, but never clothes before, so that's cool. Not that you guys really care about that haha.

Basel is really gorgeous. The Rein river goes through the city, and we took a ferry across the river, just because it was fun to do. We had an Eis, and some Apfelsaft (Ice cream, Apple Juice) We did some walking walking, talking, taking pictures lol. It was quite enjoyable.

The plan for the rest of the week is going to Freiburg once more, probably making one more trip to Basel, and maybe Lörrach again. Then this weekend we plan on going to Switzerland to see some mountains (the Alps). It's going to be a good last week :)

Sounds like a fun week! I'm so glad you are having some nicer weather. Soak it all in and keep taking lots of pictures - I want to see them all when you get back.

BTW Rein has an "h" in it (Rhein).
