Every year the fourth graders go away on a retreat for a couple of nights. It's a "last hurrah!" before they move on to fifth grade. This year they went to a Christian retreat centre up in the Black Forest. The kids had such a great time! They were hoping for some warmer weather at the end of April, but instead they got snow! This ended up being so much fun for all of them. They went sledding, built snowmen and other snow creatures, I think there might even have been a snowball fight or two. This is the last year where the kids will be in a bilingual school setting. All of the English students are heading off to BFA's middle school, and the German students are continuing on in different German schools. It's a bit sad to think they won't see each other very much anymore! It has been such a fabulous experience for Keegan - it's something that he will never forget.
