Germany/England…the overlap….

Cleaning off the old phone with my sneaky pictures on it yesterday I came across a few I hadn’t shared. Oh Germany there are certain things about you I definitely miss..like the Hollister store in Frankfurt. We didn’t go to Frankfurt often but it was always fun when we did…mostly I miss the “Frau on …

I’ll tell you a secret.

OUR STUFF IS IN GERMANY!!!!! I have no idea what that means and if I still have weeks until it gets to our door but our stuff is here.  I received an email from the company (in German, natch)  stating that they want money to clear it through customs (natch) and that we have to …

Things that confuse me….long list, here’s one.

I had to post about the dryer.  I think I mentioned it before, or maybe on facebook but we have a washer and dryer that I picked up for 199 Euros each.   They work like a charm.  We had them before we had chairs for obvious reasons.  There are 5 of us and 4 of …

Lions and Tiger and Wooden Bears.

Ever seen a donkey with dread locks.  No really, have you.  I have.  We went to the Heidelberg Zoo yesterday and the weirdest looking donkey of all times was there.  I’m not sure how to describe him so here’s a pic (even though I know just by typing that the pic will take forever to …

Every day can be an adventure…

The first week of school is finished and the kids are exhausted.  Nothing wears a kid out like having to get up in the morning and think.  Both kids enjoyed their respective classrooms and both kids will have an interesting year to say the least.   Nadia’s class has 5 students until October when the 6th …
