The weather man was dead wrong yesterday (yeah!!! It was supposed to rain) and today. Another sunny, beautiful day here in Germany.
I got the kids' bikes down out of storage and they rode them around for a bit. Problem is, the bikes haven't grown at all over the winter. And the kids HAVE - like weeds. Ian still is the big boy in class and Leah now is taller than everyone else in her class too. I identified the problem, and came up with a solution - I'm guessing this problem isn't staying solved...
Don't worry, no kids were harmed in the making of this photo. I had the kids hold one brick on their head and then photoshopped in the stack (which I'd taken earlier in the day).
Prior to the shenanigans above, we all hopped in the Mini and drove a bit down the road to the walking/bike path that was most likely an abandoned railroad line, complete with a tunnel through the "mountain". There are some interesting things to see, but today's was mostly Catherine, Ian, and Leah.
Catherine was a photo diva today. The kids brought their camera and Ian must have taken five or more photos of just Catherine. No one else was allowed in the photo! I just took advantage of his timing, is all.
Finally, one last very exciting development that happened while I was in Georgia: Ian learned to tie his own shoes! He is getting to be such a big boy (which is why I need more bricks).
Have a wonderful day everybody. We did here in Germany!
