Blowing a mega huge soap bubble is quite an impressive sight. I used to think that the ingredients for such a bubble were a bit mythical. Stuff that was hard to find, but I found out it is really not that hard. In fact, it is quite simple. You need to mix normal soap used for cleaning the dishes, some water, a bit of sugar and the magic ingredient, cheap beer. Mix it all up and with a special contraption of two sticks and some rope you can make your own huge bubbles.
It summer so the kids will be enjoying some well deserved time off. For Alex and Alan this will mean a lot of weeks without their daily routine. No school and lots more time for playing and fun. This year Alex surprised us by asking us if he could go to a summer camp. He wanted to go one week to a camp with kids he does not know at a place we only visited once. A mayor change in Alex’ personality because normally he would never initiate something like this as he prefers to stick to the things he knows and avoid risk and new situations.
Alex wants to go to the summer camp organised by ‘Los Olivos‘. We went here just once and the kids got to interact with goats, rabbits, chickens, plants, etc. Alex was very happy with our visit and now he wants to go without parents or brother for a week. He is very enthusiastic and we see this as a big step forwards in his behavior and we could not be happier.
