Addy is 6

Can't believe my little girl is 6!  Some days you don't think they can't grow up fast enough and other days you just want them to stay little.  Addy enjoyed a small birthday party attended by her Oma, Opa, and some of the neighborhood children.  Addy is making friends fast!  Her Oma made her a yummy chocolate cake covered with smarties and a strawberry cake.  Oma gave her the game Halli Galli and her Aunt gave her a barbie doll. She also recieved a doll guitar before she left the states from her nana and from her papa and I she got to go to Leggoland here in Germany (pictures and details coming soon on this trip)  Happy Birthday baby girl!  We love you to the moon and back!  The little girl sitting next to Addy is Layla.  She was born here in Germany, but her parents are from Uganda.  She lives next door and speaks perfect English which is good and bad when you are trying to teach your daughter how to speak German.  She loves having someone to walk to school with and play with after school.

Adventures in Florida

Hi!  We are still alive!  We haven't had internet this past month and so I haven't been able to post. Currently, I am working off my hotspot on my phone.  The past month since we have been here in Germany the children have been attending school, enjoying the beautiful weather, and making new friends.  My husband and I have been working on setting up our apartment and all that comes with moving to a new country.  Some days we feel like we have really made some progress and other days we feel like we still have so  much to do before we can really settle in and start enjoying ourselves.  I wanted to post some photos of  us since we have been here, but my card reader isn't working and so I will have to wait a couple more days until Amazon delivers me a new one.  Sadly there is no media store in the town I live in and so I had to order one online.  Back home Harris has been working like crazy and Winston went to Florida with the Boy Scouts to attend Sea Base where they learned survival tacktics, fished, snorkled, and so on, and by the looks of the photos they had a great time.
