The last week of school before we left for the US, Jonas and a dear friend shared a birthday in our home. Treasure hunts for chocolate, cakes, legos, pizza, dashing about outdoors, kicking balls and constructing castles and more were the order of the day. A few spent the night, to be greeted by my pancakes the next day. As they swirled around us, my friend and I chatted and explored and discussed and contemplated. There was much for us to chew on.
