We are very ,very happy !!!!!!!!!!!
This morning the school called to tell us that our daughter Astrid has passed her final exams!!!!!!!!!!!
JIIIIIIIIPPPPPPPIIIIIIEEEEEEE.
And when somebody has passed their exams we hang our flag outside together with the school bag and some books.
The house on the right is our house.

I was at work in the bakery when Astrid called to tell the good news. All the customers kept congratulating my daughter and me. We sell these lovely small bouqguets of candy that are so cute, I just had to buy her one. I also bought some lovely pastry to celebrate .

The sweet bouquet looks lovely. Another great idea.

Hoi Monique,
Gefeliciteerd met je dochter! Wat leuk zeg :) Ik woon nu 4 jaar in Nederland maar tot nu toe heb ik niets over deze traditie gehoord, maar erg leuk moet ik zeggen :)
Een hele leuke Zondag met je gezin wens ik je toe,
groetjes van Aina :)

Well done Astrid! And what a nice tradition to hang the flag and schoolbag outside. The small bouquet of candy looks (and tastes surely as well...) sweet.

Congratulations to Astrid!

Here the children take regent's exams. Joey (my oldest) took his final one yesterday. He's done really well this year too!

Aren't we blessed to have such smart kids?
