Black Forest Academy from the air

Here are some photos of BFA taken from a helicopter. Our campus consists of three buildings: the one with the silver roof consists of classrooms, studios, offices, and a library. The red-roofed building houses our gymnasium, central kitchen, cafeteria, and auditorium. The gray-roofed building contains classrooms, offices, and a student center.

BFA Skate Night

On Friday night our High School went skating at an outdoor rink in Basel (Switzerland). Many of our students know a lot more about playing soccer than ice skating because of where they grew up! However, they had fun trying a new sport, some of them for the first time! The locals must have wondered what happend because there were so many of us and we kind of took over the whole rink!

Back to college....

We took Luke to Zurich on Wednesday, January 2, only to find that his flight had been cancelled! Can you imagine the chaos when a huge plane cancels an international flight....at high season?! We were initially told by our airline that Luke would not be able to get another flight until 4 days later! But then later in the day we found out that they had a seat for him in Business Class the next day(Thursday). So.....we were able to spend an extra day with him which was wonderful! And....he flew Business which he had never experienced before! And...because of flying Business he was allowed more weight, so I stuffed more "stuff" in his suitcase. And...because of flying Business he was able to spend his 6 hour layover in D.C. in the Red Carpet Lounge!

Our last evening together before Luke headed back to Taylor University.
