Last day ...

Yesterday my youngst daugther Mie had her last day at school. 

In DK they dress up and then throw caramels out to the younger kids at school, throw water with waterguns and do some kind of activities. 

Mie alias Alice in Wonderland
Her class and her meet early in the morning for breakfast and then they went to school all dressed up.
Her class did a show dance and made a skit of the teachers they had for the last year. They throw caramels  out to the younger classes and throw water at them and each other. They meet to play a soccer game against the teachers - and lost :)
This day is a huge and fun day for the whole school :)

Then all the 9th classes in our city meet in a park - called Strandparken - for a mini concert, later on the girls from the class meet for pizza before going to a big party with apprx 350 people (15-16 olds). Parents volunteers as guards at the youth center / party hall made me calm.  
I pick-up her up this morning at 230am, she was very tries and happy. 

However during the next month she will have oral exams as the written exams are finished. When the oral exams are done she is having 6 weeks of summer break before starting sports boarding school.

I wonder if I've been changed in the night. Let me think. Was I the same when I got up this morning? I almost think I can remember feeling a little different. But if I'm not the same, the next question is 'Who in the world am I?' Ah, that's the great puzzle! "

  1. What a beautiful girl you have Mette! It sounds like she had a great last day of school.
    I am curious about her exams, she is asked oral questions to pass? And what is this
    about sports boarding school? I saw in a post that she plays soccer? My husband
    is a huge fan and use to be a goal keeper.

    1. She did and today she is a bit tried.
      For the oral exams in english and danish she have done a written synopsis about a subject. She had to choose 1 out of 6 or 8.
      On monday she has the english exams and her synopsis is about the amsih people and then she have to talk about one of the other ones which she have to draw there. The same in dansih and her synopsis is about a musicvideo.
      In christianity and physics chemistry she also have to draw a subject and then gets 30-45 minutes to prepare.
      Sports boarding school in danish is called Efterskole and they have a sport as the main courses.
      She plays alot of soccer 3 times a week and the a match also during the week and she loves it. On the boarding school she will have soccertraining every day 2-4 hours and will also have normal classes
      and some other sports. She play defense.
      This is the place she is going to: http://klintsoegaard.dk/ and she cant wait :-)
