Happy January!

Well, it has been quite a while since my last blog post. Things got busy with my German classes and then we had to get packed for our trip to Louisiana. We had a great time with family and friends and then we got sick. O got better, I got worse. We came home and that pretty much takes us to where we are now.


Our Christmas vacation was great, really. We saw a lot of people and got to spend quality time with some of our favorites. I’m especially grateful for that time in light of the fact that a very special little friend has passed away since our trip. I hope that O will remember at least some of his time with his friend.

Now we’re back in the hum-drum of the everyday in cold, snowy Deutschland. I’m feeling better and ready to power through the next three months of German classes. I’m looking forward to the new challenges that 2013 will bring and hopefully I’ll have a few friends come for a visit!


Biggest Challenge of 2013: My son decided he wants to be a rock star. How do you tell a 2 year old that eventually he’s going to have to grow up and get a real job????
