We've been holding our breath, waiting, wondering what is going to happen. Where will we be this fall?
Cody concludes his masters on April 30th at approximately 4:30 p.m.—no I'm not excited at all—and then we have decided to end our lease at the end of May and move home for the summer to live with our families. In part because it is one of our highest priorities for our boys to have a strong relationship with their grandparents, aunts, and uncles, and in part because Cody will be enrolling in a 7 week intensive language program in Vermont toward the end of the summer, and I didn't want to be on my own during that time (military spouses, you amaze me).
All of this is in preparation for our next big adventure: A YEAR IN GERMANY (!!!!!!!!!!), the land of my heart. You guys... we're going to Germany! To live! For a whole year, what?
^^This is pretty much how I feel (Berlin, Germany 2008) ^^
And tonight, when Cody sent me this article, I had no doubts. Ich hab' mein Gartenzwerg gern.
^^Behold my Ritzenhoff Gartenzwerg. The most frivolous-awesome-expensive thing I've ever purchased, and I haven't regretted it once. I'm trying to figure out if I can take him back to Germany with me... he probably misses it.^^
