So its 7:50am and theres a knock on the door….We open it to one of our classmates saying that we have to catch the bus at 8:15am….NBD Needless to say I rocked the ponytail and no make up…..cute I know :)
We arrived at the school to realize that we were super early so we chilled outside on the larger than life itself playground!
The school actually is the most colorful and largest that we’ve visited…their gymnasium is also large and has a lot of room for equipment.
This particular school is a grundeschule and hauptschule put together so there are about 480 students and about half are in the grundschule part and the other half are hauptschule. This is the first time that I’ve seen diversity of teachers…there are more diverse students in the classroom with race and size/shape….
The PE classes that I got to observe were very interesting! the 1st one the teacher didn’t have ANY control of her class but they played fun games oh and they ran 3 killers( which are like buildup ladders) I didn’t do those until hs in my sports and they were usually for punishment!) lol these 1st graders did them NBD…..
The next class was an indian/african American teacher who had a gentle voice but had complete control of his class….And they began to do track things like sprints, long jump, and I’m sure that if they would’ve been better behaved they would’ve had the chance to do shot put with tennis balls :( sad day :( i was waiting like a child on xmas eve waits for xmas morning! lol
All in all it was great day! Then we we went back to the hotel to grab lunch then off to the mercedes benz museum :) so we get on the train….only to get to the museum to find out that its closed on MONDAYS :( sooo sad! So quick on our feet we decide that we should go to a dinosaur museum…which ends up also being closed on mondays….So after brainstorming we decide to just go back and get ice cream! Have I mentioned that I prolly gained back all 20lbs that I’ve lost! lol NBD all worth it! I LOVE GERMANY and its WONDERFUL food! lol well truth of the matter is that I LOVE FOOD in general….My clothes still fit…so thats a good a sign right?
Ok so I may or may not have given up euros for food and bought the CUTEST maxi dress! it looks SO german! and I’m in love…so much that I will prolly go hungry thursday and friday! lol oops Its all about being a poor college student right?!
Well we go back to the hotel grab some money so we could go to the grocery store to pick up food for our picnic at the castle! Who is excited!!!! PICK ME PICK ME!!!
We got our picnic(enough for 3 of us) for 15euro! thank you REVE!!! lol that is complete with grapes, bananas, fresh rolls, salami,ham, 2types of cheese, beef jerky, and drinks! (aka H2O)
1/2 of us walk up to the castle while the other take the bus…we meet in the courtyard of the castle where we picnic and later have class with Bettina. It was simply fabulous!
Then off to bed bc we leave at 7:30am….ouch thats ok we can do it!
