Well folks, that's it. Maternity leave is officially over. It actually has been since May, but Liz took three months of parental leave plus three weeks of vacation. Now it's back to the grind! She was greeted with some lovely flowers from Lunette. How did the first day go? "It was like I never went away."
Today Benjamin had some practice hours at the Creche, so we took the older kids to a museum by the beach. "Beelden aan Zee" is a great little museum of sculptures. The kids we're bring might dorky pretending to be part of the art.
Big sleepover last night! Evie, Felix, and Benjamin were joined in their room by Mirre and her big sister Lieve. Amazingly, everybody was asleep by 9:30 and slept through the night. Of course we had American pancakes for breakfast.
Yesterday Evie, Felix, and Mirre made some tie dye tshirts and Liz tie dyed some of Benjamin's flat diapers. The results are pretty cool, despite the colors not completely setting properly. Next time we will do better! And in other words, Benjamin's first tooth broke through today!
