When the kids go to bed, we tell each other what was the best and the worst of the day. To our surprise, Anna mentioned that school was very good today. The inital troubles she had vanished and now she’s well accepted and has a very best friend at school. A girl who arrived in Motueka with her family during spring holidays. From that day on, Anna was no longer “the new one”, but the one who could introduce new ones to school.
Verena never had issues with living in New Zealand. She’s always open for making new friends, but those are usually not that close as Anna’s.
