Before the end of term we purchased a small BBQ to help ring in the pending summer holiday. Nothing says ‘summer’ more than a hot and tasty BBQ meal! So Mr. G happily opened grilling season at the Gonzales’ house. Yes, I know it looks like a pyre built for the gods but that’s just what happens when you let philosophers light fires. (For safety reasons you can note the watering cans in close proximity to the grill.)
Anyway, we were also able to have two of Mr. G’s favorite students over one evening to BBQ and eat with us. Alexander and Augustin joined us and we had a great time hosting them. They are both incredibly funny, very sweet, with lovely personalities and it was nice to spend time getting to know them. Sadly, Augustin will be continuing his studies elsewhere, but Alexander will be with us again next year! They have great summer plans which, for Alexander may even include a trip to the good old U.S. of A. We wish them and all our other students a blessed and happy summer holiday!
