This was a very nervous time for the kids.....trying to figure out where in the world the bus stop was. They do things a little differently here in Germany. (the kids go to a school on base, so nothing TOO crazy) They have to catch the bus down the hill from where we live, and when I say "down the hill", I'm not talking about the hill we lived on in Tree-town, no no no no....., this hill is down 4 or 5 street levels and across a main highway (they actually walk under the highway to get to the bus stop every morning @ 7:15....we are the second to the last stop too!). It takes the kids a good 10 minutes to walk there, then they hop on a city bus and head school!
This concludes our first week in a foreign land....
Across the street from our home is a few acres of wilderness awesomness!
Jay-Way, being Craz-ay!
Thomas....being his usual self....
"TO THE BUS STOP KIDS!!!!"
"Why is my card pink?" said a disgruntled Thomas.
Not going to lie, I was so scared to send the kids to wait for a bus here all by themselves. But then, I noticed a 7 year old German boy waiting for the city bus to take him across the city to his violin lesson at a University....I had nothing to worry about!!

Our Dr. Seuss tree in front of our home.....wish I could somehow bring it back to Utah with me!
