Saturday

Yesterday the kids and I went to one of our local castles. It's about 5 minutes down the road.


This is a side view of it.
We went out there to take pictures of Lori's daughter's "Flat Stanley" that she sent us to take around! Later this week, we'll be going downtown and getting some great pictures of him at some of our beautiful town, and our cities castle.
It was a beautiful day, a little chilly...but the sun was shining and the kids loved running around, especially Emma! We all need sunshine in our lives and let me tell you after the winter that Germany gives, sunshine is mandatory. Unfortunately the coldness is not over. We have a chance of snow on Thursday and Saturday. Seriously the case of Spring Fever is HERE. It was so apparent today at church and tonight at Awana, as the kids (not just mine) were crazy and wild and just simply need to run outside!
So here's some more pictures of our time from yesterday.

I know I should write more, I just feel kind of blah with writing right now. It's hard to explain honestly, but I'll try. There's things I want to write, but it takes so much out of me to write it, so I need to be truly ready emotionally.
God Bless
