All the children made cards for the 1st of March. They are to wish everyone the happiness of Spring.
I am just back from a few days in Harja. I arrived on an evening of brilliant stars, and there was a sense of spring at last, even a few snowdrops had pushed through the still dead, brown grass.
Stefan celebrated his 7th birthday. He had asked that 2 boys from his class should be invited. Well before 4 o’clock, the appointed time of their arrival, he sat on a small chair by the door in rigid fear that they would not come. The minutes went by, Elena started building a garage with him, he relaxed and the boys came!
