This year we saw the Nordic School Circus for the last time. As always it was a very sweet way to end the year. Noah's performed as a circus dog - specifically, a Dalmatian. He took his role very seriously. Especially because he knew he would get a "treat" at the end :)
You can see his cute little dog act below.

Grace and her best friend Mattias attempted a stand-up comedy act. It had to do with singing "the itsy bitsy spider" in different languages...Mattias (who is Swedish) started off in Danish and Grace (who is Danish) started off in Swedish and then they ended up in English. I thought they were going to through Norwegian or Kiswahili in there but that didn't quite happen. People were a little bit unsure of what was going on, but Grace and Mattias thought they were hilarious so that was great. And they clearly did not have stage fright! See below...
At the end there was the annual singing of both the Swedish National Anthem and the Tanzanian National Anthem (almost my favorite part). I wished Kristoffer had been here for it, but he was in Uganda. I was reminded of last year when Noah performed for the first time (the year before he would not!) and how it was the first time we had Aya out in Dar at 6 weeks old. This time she sat in my lap, rocking to the music and wondering why exactly her nap was interrupted for this crazy show!
And with that, we say goodbye to the Nordic School.
We wish you all the best.
