This weekend I got to take a paddle boat ride on the Danube River with the Nam family. One of the Nam daughters was in my class last year and I have tutored both girls in English during their two years in Vienna. It was a beautiful, sunny day for a boat ride and we had a wonderful time together.

The fifth graders have been studying music history this year in Music Class. After learning about some of the great European composers, Miss Altstaetter took the class on a tour of music history sights throughout Vienna. We saw the outside of several apartments Mozart lived in and then toured the inside of an apartment Beethoven lived in. We also saw two beautiful pipe organs in St. Stephens Cathedral.

The VCS spring musical was "Annie Get Your Gun". These students took the audience back to the days of the wild west and introduced them to characters like Sitting Bull and Annie Oakley. Surprisingly, Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show really did travel through Vienna in the past, performing for Emperor Franz Josef and his court in Prater Park.
Here's Frank Butler, one of the greatest shooters in the West! The costumes were amazing and helped bring the show to life.
