Celebrating Summer Holidays

The end of this school year got celebrated vividly yesterday, both in school and afterward. Both Lucas and Linnea had parties at school, Lucas' one was mostly just for the kids in the class with nice food and playtime; whereas us parents were welcome to participate at Linnea's pirate party.
There was so much food, as usual, everything beautifully set up. After their treats they had a pirate piñata and then it was time to say goodbye.

It's always a bittersweet day this last day of term. It's so nice it's finally arrived, but also it's a long time not to see all our friends now the next seven weeks, lots of goodbyes as many people are going away. Also quite a few leaving for good, always changes the dynamics a bit in our little expat bubble.

After school, we took the kids out for a nice lunch at an Italian restaurant, where they could make their own pizzas. All to celebrate that school is out. We also treated them with some special gifts, a little tradition, to reward them for all their hard work this year.
Lucas got a Wolverine figurine and dress-up, and Linnea a Belle-dress up and a Gabriella doll. Both very happy!

Here's a slide show of yesterday's events:
