Joining Jodi's 52 Project with "A portrait of my children, once a week, every week, in 2014."

Quiet moments at home, I love observing them. We are outside so often that our time spent inside is a very rewarding kind of rest. A completely refreshing flip from life before Germany.

Sebastian | He has always been terribly observant, and studies things with intense focus. I love catching him during times like this. We visit the library multiple times a week, and Seb always hunts down the bag when we get home and spends a good long while going through the new books by himself before asking me to read some to him. It's the perfect way for him to decompress after being at Kindy in the morning. Also, Seb's Kindy celebrated Fasching on Friday, so all the kids dressed up. Sebastian wanted to be a "sport guy," and was thrilled with his outfit, though it was admittedly much less elaborate than most. God bless him for not noticing.

Bruno | I am working to figure out how to keep the influence of the German language very present in the lives of our boys after we return to the states. This laminated map was one of my most recent purchases. Look at this guy, already studying up, and first thing in the morning, too! Good man. I've realized this week that Bruno really does understand German, and maybe even as well as English. As his vocabulary develops, we are hearing an increasing mix of German and English words. Vogel, Blumen, and fertig (bird, flowers, finished) are some of his newest ones. But he hilariously sticks stubbornly to the words key and hi, over the German counterparts Schlüssel and Hallo
