Today I did some spring cleaning on my computer, condensing and getting rid of old files. I hope all my hard work results in a faster computer. During my cleaning I came upon a file from our first ten days in Germany. I had wanted to start a blog and wish I did sooner, I just didn't know how to start one. So many things happen to us the first several months that were unbelievable and truly entertaining. I wish I could remember half and perhaps some day I will. I thought I'd share our first days with you.


Day 1

Landed this morning in Frankfurt Airport with a slight delay, we were on our way to our new “Adventure”! Arrived to the Domical Best Western Apartments it was very nice accommodations, spacious for a European hotel. We freshened up, and then Craig wanted us to see the house. Or at least ride the tram and bus out to house to give us a sense time and direction. We were so tired on the way back I thought we would fall asleep and miss our stop. Craig kept nodding off entertaining the guy sitting across from him, I think he was afraid Craig would end up in his lap. Needless to say we took a quick nap. Afterwards Craig and I and Sabine our relocation lady picked us up to do the final walk through of the house. Katelyn would not wake up and stayed asleep until 1:30 am. All in all the first day was not so bad, Katelyn had a few crying moments and we were tired beyond belief.

I think back to that day and I remember having so many emotions. Tired to the point of pain, sadness that ached, relief we had made it and no more packing. I remember feeling so exhausted and scared of what was ahead.

Yes! I'm with Kim. Please tell us Newbies how you came to be in Germany! I loved the story of your first day there.

That's great that you wrote all that down... I know I wouldn't remember much of the first days without my blog... it was all such a crazy, tired, emotional blur! These blogs will be so nice for the kids to read when they are older!

I'm joining the first two comments-how did this all take place? Also- do you have an email address? I have an on-going list of light reads that I would be happy to share with you. Stop by and email me if you're interested in the list.

It's fun to go back and reflect on the past.

Kathy thanks I have been waiting for "the beginning"! What does your husband do that took you so far away? Even though it is adventure it still has to be hard to be so far away from family and friends. Did you sell your home in Utah? You are almost half way there (time frame). Thanks again for sharing. xoxo
