We visited Luzern on Dirty Thursday. Rowan was not impressed with all of the noise.
Important Note: We didn't know it was Dirty Thursday until we got to Lurzern.

We got Rowan registered for school - or at least I think we did. It didn't seem as complicated as that day at Barnette all those years ago. We confirmed a bit of information that they already had and provided the following:
- my cell phone number
- Emily's cell phone number
- my work number
- the name of our insurance provider
- what religious education Rowan is to receive
- if we had a "mama du jour"
It was all in french, but I think it went fairly well. There is a parents' session in March and in July we'll find out about his teacher and which school he will attend.

Traffic has picked up on the street outside of our apartment building, so the city installed a sign that displays how fast you are going. I haven't noticed too many cars going fast, but there are lots of kids crossing the street even though there isn't a crosswalk.

Some people, such as my mother and sister, get a bit cranky if there new photos aren't posted on a regular (hourly) basis. In order to appease the masses, I am providing a link to Ryon's Picasa account. He is visiting until the 22nd, so you can expect good photo coverage for the next 2 weeks.

Yesterday was the national siren test, which I thought meant they would be testing the sirens throughout the country. I was a bit disappointed - I didn't hear them in Morges. What is the point of having nuclear shelters in the buildings if you can't hear the alarm telling you to use them?
