Happening in Germany

Here are the happenings with us lately: We bought this car on thursday. We don't get it until sometime next week because we're waiting on the title, but I'm excited. We got a great deal on it. It's got seven seats and is fully loaded. It will be nice to be able to finally have enough room to give people rides. All the seats fold down too so we can haul stuff if needed. The only problem is, it's a monster of a car. German roads and parking lots aren't made for large cars. This should be interesting. I'm a pretty confident driver, but this is going to be a challenge.
Eva has her own sense of style. She puts on the funkiest outfits. She is really a lot of fun. She's got a definate attitude problem, but we're working on that. :) She's speaking German more and more these days. I'm very proud of her. She likes her little german kindergarten. She's making friends there. She and Gabe are also starting to play together more. That has been fun watching them interact more. They love playing with their velcro ball and paddles. Do you all remember those? Where you have to pull the ball off the velcro paddle? The love them! Gabe has quite the arm. He's going to be my money ticket in the future. :) Gabe got tubes in his on thursday and is doing great. We're really hoping his attitude changes with it. :)

Hans and I are getting ready for our week long trip to Ireland without the kids. This is a much needed break for Hans. He's been working so hard lately. He will be done with his MBA in September. His brigade is also moving up to Wiesbaden this summer. Well, until later...

I love Eva's outfit! I'm glad Gabe got tubes. I hope this helps him (and you in the process). It was such a wonderful thing for Isaac. He hasn't had an earache since he got his tubes. I love the car. Want to trade?

Just because you put those pictures on here, she'll grow up to be a famous designer! Have fun with the car! -Jen

Everything seems to be going well. Glad Gabe got the tubes in. I hope this solves the multiple earache problems now.

Eva is such a diva in that little getup! Wait til she's 16!

Red is your color! Don't get pulled over in that racey thing! ;)

rylee and eva are made to be best friends. At least if the way they dress has anything to do with it. Gabe is such a cutie! I'm sad he had to get ear tubes, what a pain. Congrats on the new car! Usually when you upgrade to a bigger car it's because you are upgrading your family! Any news?

No Natalie, no news. Hans warned me that someone was going to probably ask that question. :) We aren't preggers yet and not trying for a while still. If you met Gabe, you'd understand why. :)

Car is snazzy! (How's that for an old fashioned word?!)
The kids are really cute. Eva's outfits remind me of one of my girls. She put together some really crazy things but has grown out of it. It's fun to see their imagination take off like that.
I'm glad they are playing together better. They will become very good friends.
