There is a Swiss which creates games for kids. It is similar to Lego, the well known toy.

There is no special thing with Kiditec® but that my elder girl went to a photo shooting ot this company together with a couple of other kids from our nighbourhood. This happend because one of our nighbours wife knows someone from this company and they needed fotos for their newest campaingn.

I was very surprised to find my girls on top of the campaing but am very proud about this. We got the photo already weeks ago but both, my wife and me did not expect that this photo will become the top photo.

Hope this will also be something, my little taughter will be proud of when she is older. At the moment, she just does not realize what happened.

Our daughters like to paint. Every day they sit together and paint paper by paper. Once with normal pens, once with water colors and sometimes with magic colors.

The older daughter was making a lot of progress in the last few weeks. Sometimes I think she already can do it better than myself. Here is an example of what she is able to do with 5 and a half years. She tried to paint “Pippi Langstrumpf”. She tried to bring some movement into the picture. Don’t ask why one eye is green and the other one is blue.

She has no right answer. It’s childish. She has two main topics at the moment. She only paints girls and beautiful cloths for girls, like a cloth desinger. Maybe when is is grown up she will want to work as a designer. I think she has the interest.

In winter there was a lot of snow. Then in March, suddenly it became warm and within a few weeks all the snow was gone and it went green and warm.

Now it is spring in Einsiedeln. The vegetation is weeks behind that in Zürich but everything is green and the flowers are showing their most beautiful colors.

I made a walking tour through the wood behind Einsiedeln. There is a small path which you can walk with children. The kids have a lot of fun, searching for flowers and trying to catch butterflies.

From the hill one can see the lake. Here I made a photo of my smaller girl in the middle a big field full of yellow and white flowers.

When I was a boy, I can remember that I myself was walking through flowers in the field. I was so small that I just could smell on the flowers because they grew up to my nose. Years later, when I was older, I was woundering why the flowers were so small. I remembered them going up to my nose.

Much later, when I was grown up I knew that the flowers have the same height nowadays. What makes the difference is that I am taller now!

This year we bought a ticket for the whole year for the skiing area just behind Einsiedeln. Our older taughter skis since last winter and has so much fun with it that we go for sking almost every weekend.

The younger taughter has to attend us. We put her onto a sledge where she sleeps very often. Then we make about 10 time the hill with the older taughter, the younger pulling around, go to the restaurent for french frees and a wheet beer. After one or two hours we go down to the village the small kid on the sledge and me or my wife behind her.

Its such a fun and the area is so beautiful. There are not to many people. The slope is not to steep, ideal for children. And this year there is such a lot of snow. It will be possible to ski for another month I think. And the panorama is amazing.

The name of the moutain on the picture is “Mythen”. Its just 15 minutes with the car from our flat. I can see it from our garden.

There is a lot of snow in November this year. First snow came two weeks ago but then it became warm again. Now winter is back in Einsiedeln. The children have a lot of fun. They are sloping down the small snow hills around the houses.

Einsiedeln is very beautiful in winter. From our flat the nearest scating slope is just 100 meters away. And on the other side of a big field there is just 1 kilometer away a skiing ascalator to where you can easily walk.

Skating

The skating ground has already opened. So we went to it to make our first rounds this year. Lot of childs were there and our eldest is just going to learn it.

Two years ago it was so cold in Dezember that the lake was frozen. There was 40 cm heavy ice on the lake. For a few weeks they made a big skating ground on the lake. It was very funny to skate there.

It is said that if there are minus 300 degree over a certain period that lake Zürich gets frozen. There must be for example 20 days with minus 15 or 30 days with minus 10 degree. This only happens 2 times in hundred years. But two years ago it nearly happend.

This year we went to another greek island, to Rhodos near the border of Turkey. From Rhodos city you can see the costside of Turkey. Rhodos is a wunderful island. We had beautiful weather the whole week, and there was wind all the day. So it became not realy hot like last year in Corfu.

I have been in Rhodos about 10 years ago with a friend of mine. It was my first holiday in Greece and we had a lot of fun. We rent a motobike and drove around all the island. We were quite young and feared nothing.

We drove up and down the small cities during the night, almost nothing was visible but the lights of the other cars. Since this holiday I spent a lot of time in Greece in different islands. Every holiday here was great. I really like Greece.

Corfu

This was our first holiday with both children and our first flight with them. But it ran better than expected. Flying was wounderful and an adventure for the girls.

The weather was very good, I like the greek kitchen and the sea. I hope, we can repeat the summer holidays until the childs are not longer interested in going away with their parents.
