I'm holding good thoughts that you have a smooth move, with no damage, and everything right on time. Will you get quarters after the month?
Enjoy the tour!

For housing, we are authorized a four bedroom. Our kids are 10, 8, and 6. The boys (10 and 6) have been sharing a room here and they really need their own rooms. The wait for a 4 bedroom on the kaserne is 27 weeks. So, we will be living off post. Most houses are advertised through a realtor. We have to wait two weeks before using a realtor or the army won't pay the fee. Therefore, we are anticipating a month in a hotel with three kids and a cat.

LOL And cleaning base housing for inspection - I just remember using a toothbrush in the channels of the sliding glass doors to make sure everything was 100% clean! Oh, my knees! What a job that was!
I will be thinking about you and wishing you lots of good memory making on this journey!

I hope the move went well. I am just down the road in Baumholder.
Our youngest was born at Landstuhl. I had a very high risk pregnancy and had 2 appointments a week for the 6 months I was pregnant. Then we spent a month in the NICU there as my son was a preemie.
They are like family to us now.
I love Germany and will be sad to leave next year! I hope you enjoy it as much as I have.

Bless your heart!
There are many people who would consider no internet for that long to be "cruel and unusual punishment!"
Hope you are starting to feel at home.
Good luck on getting decent internet asap!
Thanks for checking in.

Great to hear from you! I've been thinking about you - kind of figured you may not have internet yet over there. But how wonderful that you're knitting! You're right - it's going to get very cold there in another month or so but it's a beautiful cold if I remember right!
Keep in touch!

Hang in there!
Maybe the upcoming holidays will ignite your scrapping mojo!
In the meantime, knitting is a great way to keep your creativity flowing.
Hope you and the children are starting to feel at home.

I've been enjoying all of my Nutcrackers that I bought in Germany when I was there for soooo many years - I totally agree that the beauties of a German Christmas are very special. somewhere in our basement are my Christmas ornaments too - I have to find them - they must be buried in all of the mess down there. I carried all of them back in a big suitcase I had to buy in Germany to take on the plane back to Turkey and they sat at my side the whole trip. I absolutely loved my time in Germany!
