Hello from Germany!

Germany greeted us with the most wonderful gift of fantastic weather. The last couple of days have been amazing. I have never seen weather like this at the end of April here in Germany. It was so warm that we were even able to swim outside. Kind of crazy, but I am not complaining. The last couple of days have been hectic as we celebrated Oma's birthday. Wait till you see the cakes she had for her birthday, but that is another post. We went swimming at the neighboring city swimming pool. Visited with family and friends and set up our apartment here in Heidelberg which was no easy task when you have 4 children. I am sure the lady at the checkout counter has never seen so many groceries being bought at one time.    Well, it is late here.  While the others have adjusted well to all the changes, Addy is not so thrilled.  She has cried all day.  I don't know if it is her teeth, the new formula, or what, but she is one unhappy girl.  Her and I made a deal that she would give me ten minutes to make this post and the ten minutes are almost up.  Praying though that she will sleep well.  Hope you are all doing well and look forward to catching up with all of you, but before I go I thought I would share this picture of Winston and the Rapeseed field.  The fields are gorgeous right now and spring is in it's full glory here in Germany.

Awesome!!!! Love the picture. I'm sorry about your baby girl. I bet she will just take a little longer to adjust, is all...hopefully.

Take great care,

Shauna
