Last week the Juniorette turned 9 years old. A few days earlier we celebrated with our family and the Juniorette’s Godparents in a local restaurant. The weather was kind to us and everyone had a nice time. On the actual date of her birthday we took the Juniorette and a group of her friends to Giessen by train to visit Mathematikum
. This is a science museum for kids. The staff prepared a birthday table for the Juniorette and then showed the kids round. They participated in a rally and had to track down the answers to the questions in the museum. After being fed and watered we headed back to Marburg by train.
The kids had a great time and all really enjoyed the train trip. Not sure if the other passengers enjoyed it as they were very loud. But birthdays are meant to be loud when you are 9 years old.
The Juniorette’s favourite present was her new Werder Bremen (away kit) football shirt (see photos) embossed with the name of her favourite player . She has worn it to football training already and I am slowly realising that she is amassing a little stockpile of footy shirts (8 at the last count!).
She had a great birthday and really enjoys celebrating it twice; once with her family and once with her friends, but I wonder how many years that will last?
