In August Sarah started 1st grade and Nadiah the first Kindergarten class. They like it very much and Nora gets exercise by walking Nadiah to her place and pick her up. School is good and Sarah takes advantage of the buddy system. A six grader takes care of the beginners.
In fall we went to Austria for a few day with uncle Juerg, attended the wedding of Haiming and Speedy and enjoyed some hikes in the mountains. We had to admit Nana to a dementia ward, as it got too dangerous at home. Opapi broke his hip a few weeks later and spent the rest of 2013 in hospitals and rehab.
Wil is known for tradition. Advent was filled with activities, Stefan’s beloved St. Nikolaus, Singing in the old town for the kids and Sarah crafted her own lantern for the New Years Eve parade. We were ready for the Singi family to arrive to celebrate Xmas and have winter fun. (See newsletter)
