I think it’s about time I attempted to catch up… For weeks now I’ve been struggling to grasp that this is not a vacation… I’m not going back to Germany… My life won’t slow down enough to have time to do all of this… I just have to learn to fit it in! I need to find a balance! Thank you all for bearing with me…
I’ll start my catch up with my last morning in Germany… I was tempted to skip over this because so much has happened since. However, it was one of the prettiest mornings I’ve ever seen… it was as if God was giving me a send off that would remain forever in my heart. So I’ll share it!
We started out for the airport at 6am on my last day and as a result we witnessed a glorious sunrise.
As the day lengthened it got better and better!
The colors became deeper and the light was no longer a weak winter light…
Germany was at its best that morning…
And then we drove into Koblenz…
Where the Rhine and the Mein rivers meet… We found a stop off overlook that we’d never seen before and were treated to a glorious view!
Sunrise on the Rhein.
See the apple trees in blossom?
It was a wonderful note to leave on. I will never forget my time there, the things I saw, the places I went… Never in all my life will the draw of Europe let me go… It has been an amazing adventure and though I’m glad to come home it will forever hold a special place in my heart!
My flight home was uneventful… Actually it was the best one I’ve ever had! It was a great relief to come home to my boys, safe, sound and happy to see me! I was asleep the moment my head hit the pillow…
The very next day was Easter Sunday and I hit the ground running!
It was a blast and of course my favorite part was introducing Savannah to my boys!
Look at those pigtails! She has discovered the fun of feeding dogs and the boys have discovered that you never want to be far from where the baby is sitting!
What a cutie pie!
And she never stops!
Well, almost never…
She and the boys were soon fast friends and the running and playing commenced!
Here she is saying “Puppies!?” I can’t even begin to explain how cute this is…
Yep Savannah it’s a puppy! Yoda wasn’t so sure what she was though!
Then it was time for the Easter Egg hunt… She walked around the whole time with her arm up like that… trying to hold onto her basket!
Thank you Momma (and baby brother!)
Yay another one!
Look at all my eggs mom!
Grandpa will help you!
Then it was time to pull out my red parasol and see if she would play…
Not so much but it was worth a try!
That next week we prepared for days for a HUGE yard sale! Just look at our layout!
It looked like a boutique in the garage…
We had china and exercise equipment.
We had antiques and clothes…
Pictures and nicknacks…
Jewelry and lamps…
It was a huge success! We as a family made almost $1,500.00! Wowsers!
And that covers my first 10 days or so in Phoenix. I’ll be back with more later (but not much later I promise!)
Oooo and you have to see this weird bug I caught on my mom’s yard sale table… what in the world IS that thing?
I’ll leave off there for the day… trust me… there are a lot more things to share! You’ll be sick of me in no time!
So I’ll leave you with my favorite picture from the first week… I call it…
BABY THRILLER! 🙂
