Weekend with Michelle

By spotogspindel | September 26, 2011

Spending the weekend with my adopted American family (they adopted me 🙂 It really feels like coming home: going to Jess´ soccer-game, or helping Alexis with her hair before she´s off to home-coming. Gosh! I can still remember when I went to home-coming in the 7th grade! Man, that feels like it´s half a century ago! (I know it´s not that long, but if certainly feels like it sometimes.)

Michelle and Alexis making a Pink Ladies jacket. Rock was the evening´s theme.

Visiting our local JoAnn´s craft-shop. (I love the coupon-system! The till-lady shaved $70 off my bill!)

An Italian evening with friends and OMG-delicious food!

Jess´ soccerteam played hard in the rain. The game was good, but watching the parents was really entertaining. This is an hard-core audience! 🙂

No, seriously, I think American parents are really good in supporting their kids in their activities. They make a social outing of it, and it becomes a whole little community of people who meet every Sunday and experience something together.

My little tucan, made in preparation for tomorrow´s workshop, mainly to renew my acquaintance with Michelle´s sewing machine. He´s looking a little pale here. GIF-files often do that.

Well, I am now checked into my Embassy Suite, with both a living-room and a tea-kitchen, bath and bedroom. Wow. A lot of space here! I can have my own arting-evenings in my dining-area! 😀
