First day at Hogwarts

Monday the 16th the kids all had their first school day at the International School Neustadt.  The school meets in a well cared for but definitely repurposed building on the other side of town.  The exterior has an old world feel with a cobblestone parking lot and brick facade.   Its by all accounts a great school, but “International School Neustadt” just does not roll off the togue like “Hogwarts.”

The cone shaped things for the little kids are called schuletütes.  I’d explain that in more detail but I wasted all my energy trying to figure out how to type a ‘ ü ‘.
