Life with a Baby

When we came back to The Netherlands, we came with a 13-year old and a baby who was days away from being 4-months old.  The travel alone with a baby was different.  You have to realize that Grace was almost 4 when we moved here the first time.  All my experiences with a baby were […]

Snow Day (Ok, it’s really an ice day)

Not too long ago, someone asked Grace if she liked her American school or her Dutch school better.  At the beginning of the school year, she would’ve said her Dutch school because it’s familiar to her.  However, she’s adjusted and really likes her school and all her friends.  She quickly said, “My American school.”  When […]

The Time of Year I Love (in Texas)

Finally, it is here!  The temperatures have dropped just a bit, and I’m not complaining about the heat anymore.  We usually keep our thermostat much warmer than most people here in America: 78 F.  About 4 or 5 days ago, I decided that we could do without the air conditioning all together.  A few nights […]

Is Spring Here?

We often play “What’s Your Favorite” as a family. Generally, one person will ask a question about a favorite thing.  It could be things like what your favorite movie, tv show, song, game, etc is.  Grace often asks what our favorite season is.  Her “favorite” season is: fall (because her birthday falls during that season), […]

Autumn is definitely here

No, we don’t have major changes in our lives.  It is feeling much more like autumn here though.  Schools here had an autumn break last week, and it was so nice to have a little bit of time to relax as a family.  We were able to go to a few museums.  Here is Grace […]
