Annual Holiday Party

This week we all met for our Annual Au Pair Holiday Party.  Every au pair was asked to bring a favorite holiday dish that is served in her country.

We all had a great time and got to try many different treats from all around the world.

The National September 11 Memorial (New York, USA)

Take a moment today to remember victims of the 2001 September 11 attacks, often referred to as 9/11 (pronounced nine-eleven) On this day, hijackers intentionally crashed two airplanes in to the World Trade Center in New York City causing them to collapse. Hijackers crashed a third airliner into the Pentagon in Arlington, Virginia, just outside of Washington, D.C. The fourth plane crashed into a field in rural Pennsylvania, after some of its passengers and flight crew attempted to retake control of the plane.
