The scariest part of all is that someone thought it was a good idea.

What do you want to wear to school ....?
Did I just say that? Aiee!!
The German tradition for the first day of school. The thing Jr.Gopher #1 is holding is a Schultute. It's filled with goodies. Apples, colored pens, candy, more apples, more candy, a "Cars" water bottle, more ... well, you get the idea.
So, Jr. #1 is now enrolled at the Twin Cities German Immersion School. There are 2 German immersion schools between LA & NYC. St. Paul and Milwaukee. Nope, not even Chicago does (which, the German Consul there says is disappointing). It only took 20 minutes to get there this morning, which is a stupendous relief. I'm still not sure how we're going to manage school transportation combined with Jr.Gopher #2 and then getting me to school.
If only the Light Rail was already built out to St. Paul. Or if only the U had cheap parking on the St. Paul campus. Or, if only the Metro had a park & ride somewhere in St. Paul Aaarg!
