A lesson in gratefullness. We dreamed of, we planned it, we executed it and so far our expectations of what life would be like in Germany were way exceeded. So many friends and strangers made our transition smooth, successful and even fun! my heart is grateful for all the good fortune we have encountered since moving here. Life is colorful, new, exciting, busy, fun, stimulating and full of love. So many positive attributes.

I feel so fortunate to have the choice to live in the US and in Germany or anywhere else within Europe. The system is so well organized that with the proper knowledge and preparation a move such as ours is manageable and easy, so easy. I wished more people took advantage of our globalized world and experience the world like we are able to do. The children have completely immersed in the German life and are loving school, their sweet teacher and the cute friends they are making everyday. Stella and I get into gear just as soon as the big kids are dropped of at school and walk the streets, run our errands, get things done! Not a dull moment. Stella loves all the hustle and bustle of the city, she loves the many parks and green areas, but most importantly she loves the water!! She squeals as soon as she spies the smallest body of water. WASSER she says WASSER!!!!!

And water there is in this beautiful city of Kiel. Lots of water, ponds, the fjord and rocky and sandy beaches. I am definitely happiest by the water. I am glad my kids, especially the youngest appreciate it just as much.

Any day now we will be moving into our new home. So far my mom has been a life saver and money saver too for letting us take over her tiny apartment and replace picture frames and vases with toys and books and other trinkets the kids collect every day. She has been doing our laundry, at least a load a day, and washing our dishes, buying groceries etc. Her little quite life has been enriched by three little happy faces and my smile as been as the State of Texas.
