Quite the adventure your family is taking on. How long will you be there? What a great cultural, historical place to be.

I love how your post looks like a vase or statue of somekind. How did you do that so evenly?

OH my word! How absolutely thrilling! That is something that I have dreamed about and brought up to Cam more than a dozen times. Lucky you! What a great opportunity for your kids {and you two parents} to see the world! I can only imagine the anniversary dates. :) You could go SO many breathtakingly romantic places. :)

Love, C&K

HOW FUN!!!! my grandpa was an OB in the military and they lived in frankfurt and berlin (back when the wall was still up) for 4 years each. my mom has really fond memories of it.

what an adventure! how long will you be there? maybe if we're out of this residency phase long enough we'd hop on a plane and come visit. :)

Besten Wünsche für ihre Familie! Best wishes! This is wonderful, exciting news. Brian was born in Nurenburg, Germany as his dad was stationed there in the US Army. Kaylyn will be traveling all over Germany for this spring with her teacher and about 23 fellow students for 16 days. So lucky!

How exciting! I'll have to find out, but I'm almost positive one of my dearest friends from college lives there with her husband and 2 little girls... you'd love her!
