An Update

It's been awhile. Life just gets busy, and things get put aside. I do love blogging, but I'm afraid it was one of the first to go. I would have much rather skip out on laundry or lunch maybe cleaning the bathroom, but it was the blog.
In the last month we had a newly wed couple stay with us for 2 weeks. They just moved here and we helped find them a houses, showed them around town and everything else that goes with moving to Germany.

I had a birthday and went on a lovely trip to Switzerland. I joined a quilt guild and have also been learning about German history.

Martin had a field exercises and has been away much of the time. He also took the computer with him, so that did make it a little harder to blog. We have decided to take a few trips as a family before he leaves for Poland in about 6 weeks.

Naomi has been keeping her room clean and has made excellent grades in school. Can't even say how proud I am of her!

Eyan had fallen out of a tree and tripped up our stone stairs, so at the moment he is a little scrapped up. He also got a very good report from his teacher and is doing excellent in school.

Silus has ridden his little tricycle to school as the weather is starting to warm up. Funny when at 45 it's a real heat wave.

Toben is still 2. He stopped drinking out of a bottle, and is showing a new interest on walking around town. He stands just under me and repeatedly wines "a walk, a walk, a walk" until I either give in or distract him. I'd say it's about 1/2 the time he wins. I do love walking in the woods here.

SO, that's it in a nut shell. I am hoping to be better this month and get some pictures of the kids up.
