Today was Leoni's 1st day at school! She had been very excited over the past few days and when she got up this morning ( 7:30, I actually expected it to be earlier :-), she was dressed in no time without me having to remind her as I usually have to and she was ready to go by about 8am. School starts at 9 though, so we had nearly and hour to fill. What Leoni didn't know was, when we went to Germany last month we brought this "thing" back, that she's holding in her arms. Every child in Germany gets one of these cones on their 1st school day, filled with goodies and sweets. She saw them in the shop windows and was very sad, that she wouldn't have one on her first day. But my mum had already bought one and we smuggled it home whithout her knowing :-) You can imagine that it was a real surprise!
