Yay for the SUN!

I knew I enjoyed the sun and summer but since living in Germany after a very cloudy winter I can't wait for the sun. When it is sunny I have to get outside and make the most of it. The kiddos and I got some new sunglass for the season -- you go months almost half a year without needing sunglasses here in Germany. It's gorgeous here, don't get me wrong but I sure do miss the sun.

Fun and cuteness at home

She needs some space Sam! We all love on Nora and sometimes she just needs some space.

 Easter Egg hunt -- Sam was totally on the ball this year. Nora had no clue what was going on.

First bike ride for Lenora

We went on a family bike ride today. Lenora's first one! It was a beautiful 68 degrees with blue skies and green fields with stunning yellow canola fields popping out every so often.  Germany is  B E A U tiful! I notice it or am more grateful for the beauty when the sun shines after hiding away for at least 4 months.

Sam 4 year old immunizations and no more appliance!

Sam does not have a cross bite or an appliance in his mouth anymore! Dr. Kersey and his techs did an amazing job and made Sam feel like a rock star every time we went in. Sam did a great job to let them work on him. He had the appliance in for almost a whole year. When asked how it feels Sam said, "It feels new." He almost didn't want to get it out. The day he had the appliance put in he was in tears because his sandwich got stuck in it. He cried, "I want it out!" But he stuck with it and was able to eat anything within weeks. Yes he is dressed up as Super Why because he knew they would make a big deal of it at the dentist's office. Today we also got his 4 year old immunizations. It was not the little pinch Elmo told us it would be. It hurt really bad and Sam is super glad he doesn't need them again until he's 11. He had 4 shots and they hurt! I felt bad for not knowing and better preparing him. Despite all this he was very brave and didn't cry…
