July 4th

I am late posting about the Fourth of July holiday...exactly a week late to be exact!  It has been a busy time here...we are still going strong with school activities here: field days, bake sales and power point presentations.:)  On June 27th, Jeremy did a presentation on the United States for his class.  Since he is the only one in his class from the US, his class was really interested.:)  I was too busy listening to his presentation, and only managed to snap this one picture while he was talking.  You know you can't talk about the US without talking about American football!:)

 And then, on July 4th, Elizabeth and two of her American friends in her class gave a presentation to her class on the history of the Fourth of July.  She put the entire presentation together by herself!:)

 This year is the 30th anniversary of the international department at their school.  It is so great to see all the nationalities represented at their school.  It has been such a wonderful experience for both Jeremy and Elizabeth to be able to get a global perspective on the world and how we, as Americans, are part of it.:)  They have both learned tolerance and acceptance of people from all over the world, and that is something I hope they take with them from our time as expats here.:)

One more pic of Elizabeth's presentation:)
 And, although the fourth of July wasn't a holiday here in The Netherlands, we took our American, Dutch and Polish friends out for ice cream to celebrate!:)
Happy Independence Day!!!
