Where does the time go?

‘Time flies’ is what we say, or ‘there are only 24 hours in a day’ and like these there are many more expressions about time. I guess it is clear to everyone that you can’t do everything at the same time. The girls spend many hours at school, the days are long and then they also have their homework. During weekends they have time to do laundry and ironing. Even the youngest girls learn to be independent at a young age. Of course, this is done step by step, but it is cool to see them do the ironing all by themselves. When there is time left, they like to play games, make music, watch tv, work out or relax with a book. Unwinding in any way is important for everyone.

Recently the girls had several days off, and they picked up trash from the roadside. The ‘mothers’ do this together with the girls to teach them responsibility for their neighbourhood and the environment. When they do this together, they also enjoy doing it.

So, you see that the girls are quite active during their spare time in one way or another.
