Winter is now over but before it ended, we asked the children how they spent it and their feelings about it. As usual, their accounts are very genuine and this is always a pleasure for us.
Here are their letters.
[Translated from romanian by Diana Bordan. Translated from italian by Tracy Horst]
This winter I did lots of things. The first thing that I liked was to go skiing and when I helped my father shovel snow off the road to go to church. I made a snowman, played with Denis, Lorena and Luiza and we threw snowballs with my father. I also liked when we went to watch fireworks (for New Year’s Eve), it was very lovely. The thing I did not like was when I did not obey my mom and dad and did not study and as a result, did not get good grades in school
This winter in Rebricea I liked skiing and going to Rates-Cuzei (part of Rebricea) on sleds and with a sack. I especially liked receiving gifts at the end of the year. Most of all I liked New Year’s Eve when we went to Vaslui with all of the family except Cristina (the Stroi’s daughter who lives in Germany). I listened to music and I watched fireworks that were so beautiful and bright that they lit up the sky. I also liked when we went to visit adoptive families (meeting with other families that have foster children).
This winter I liked it when we went to Vaslui, when went out and made a snowman and when we celebrated Denis’ birthday. I liked it when we went to the movies and ate pizza, when we went to a play area and when I skied and then my father pulled me with a shovel (an improvised sled). I liked it when we went to Rates-Cuzei (part of Rebricea) and I went on the snow on a sled and then in a sack. I liked it when I received gifts (at the end of the year) and we made snowballs with my father.
I want to tell you that I liked it when we went on the snow with a sack and with a sled. Then we made snowballs with my father and my brother and sisters, we made a snowman and then I skied with my siblings.
