Whitney and I decided we'd take a day and get out of the city. The destination: Klosterneuburg, a town right outside the city that would be fun to walk around for a day. We rushed out of the house to catch 2 u-bahns only to misread which regional train to take and then wait another 20 minutes.
Once we got on the "right" train, we settled in for a short ride. But by the time the ticket checker came by we'd already passed our stop. We'd unintentionally gotten on a train that was going directly to Tulln. The checker guy just chuckled and told us to get tickets in Tulln to return. Oops. Since we'd landed in Tulln we decided to spend the day there instead.
A couple of weeks ago we spent some time coloring flags from our own countries. I had to print six different flags for my 11 kids. We went to our school's Hall of Flags to make sure we got the right colors.
