Sommerferien

Ahh, akhirnya libur musim panas datang juga. Adam libur 3 minggu, sudah mulai dari hari Jum’at kemarin sih. Ngga tau nih liburan dirumah mo ngapain aja. Tapi hari Sabtu kemarin, Papa Mama ngajak Adam jalan² beli beberapa mainan. Adam juga sudah dibelikan Mama Lernspiel nya Dora, jadi sekarang Adam punya dua, Thomas dan Dora untuk main dan belajar Adam dirumah.

Pengennya sih, liburan kemana gitu. Tapi Oma Opa masih belum sembuh, sejak kecelakaan di Eisenbahnmuseum awal Juni kemaren. Semoga Oma Opa cepet sembuh ya… Dan semoga Adam betah dirumah selama liburan musim panas ini :P
