The remnants of our France adventure hang in my kitchen window here, and we are very much, again, in Germany. As Travis is between class sessions, we get him for the whole week and are alternating between enjoying some adventures and taking it easy.
Our first day back, we walked to the park, did the grocery shopping, and generally settled back into the routine of life here. Sunday was for coffee and cake at a café that advertises a whole corner of toys, so Travis and I were able to actually sit and sip our coffee for a while as the kids explored all the exciting options. I love a café where a kid can ride by on a scooter.
This is the look of a very excited little girl. (You might also think, for the rest of our trip, that Edith lost her entire wardrobe. But this dress from France delighted her so much that she asks to wear it every morning.)
In other news, the fifth member of our family continues to grow (too quickly for my liking). I am glad we’re doing so much walking this summer, but it does result in a sore body and tired legs every night. My energy levels are still good, and I am glad that Aunt EA will be here very soon to play with us and help me hold toddlers and maneuver double strollers on and off trains and trams!
