Grade 4 Aidan - School and Soccer

Aidan and Grade 4

Aidan on our stairwell on his first day of Grade 4!
Aidan is loving school, his teacher, and having his own iPad in school. You can see his blog here.

Aidan has chosen soccer and baseball for his after school iPop activities (iPop stands for Power of Passion). Activities start this week. Baseball is new to Aidan so it will be interesting to see how he enjoys that sport.

At recess, the popular game is 4-Square, which he really enjoys. We've watched a few YouTube videos on 4-Square strategy.

He is happy to have Mrs. Peters for his teacher as well. You can see their class blog here.

His best friends are from England, Australia, and Malaysia but he quite likes everyone in the class. It seems like a nice group with few, if any, troublemakers.
Aidan's Classmates

Aidan chose Spanish for his World Language class. He could have went with French but he is too advanced for the beginner French here after having been in French Immersion.

Another highlight for Aidan are the delicious lunches that the school offers. We, of course, pay a fee for lunch but it's great value. All food is made from scratch and is very healthy. Anyone who knows Aidan knows how much he can eat so he's living large. Plus, he doesn't have to pack a lunch, just a snack and water.

Overall, he gives AES an "A+"!

Dhobi
The doorbell rang this morning and a very shy, humble young man in his 20s introduced himself as Vineet. Vineet is our dhobi.

Every Monday and Thursday morning, we leave our laundry outside our door. Vineet takes and washes, irons, and folds the laundry and returns it to us by the end of the day.

Kirsi, Aidan, and I are having him do our laundry. Dana is doing her own. This service costs us $70 CDN/month.

For all of the sweating that we're going to do here, we feel it's worth it.

Sujata
This afternoon, we met Sujata, who will be our maid. We had phoned her months ago while still living in Canada and arranged to hire her when we arrived in New Delhi.

She seems very nice and the family took to her immediately. She has worked for AES staff before so she knows the ins and outs of campus life.

Her main duties will be cooking and cleaning. She took cooking classes in Vietnamese, Thai, and Mediterranean cooking. She, of course, can cook Indian food as well. We gave her some rupe…

A Day of Firsts at an International School - Geckos, monkeys, and humidity oh my!

We arrived in New Delhi late last night to a warm welcome from the admin and support team from the American Embassy School New Delhi. It was nice meeting the people that were helping us get here in person. They've been very efficient and helpful in navigating the sea of paperwork of applications and visas.

Jet lag had me up at 4:00 in the morning and I immediately checked out the Hindi Devotional playlist on Google Music. I'm really digging the mellow, groove. Click on the link, turn up the music, and keep reading. Aidan is really digging the music, as well.

So far, it's been a day+ of firsts.

Kirsi and Aidan's first long international flight as independent children. They did a great job of navigating all of the steps involved in international travel and are pros now.Our new apartment is really nice - a video tour and pictures to come. Kirsi "loves our apartment, it's awesome."A gecko on the balcony at 1:30 in the morning sent the kids screaming to the sa…

Lodi Gardens & Kirsi's Soccer

Here is what our Saturday has looked like so far: Dana and Aidan Dana and Aidan went with the school group named HOPE at Lodi Gardens. There, they worked with the rest of the staff and students to offer activities to students from a local school. It's an amazing program.
Aidan said that it was "really awesome" to be able to work with the students and that Lodi Gardens was beautiful. 
Dana came away with some amazing photos.
