Spring…thank you?

April 19, 2013

Want to learn a new Slovene word?  Ok, here goes…”končno.”  You pronounce it like “konchno.”  It’s meaning?  “Finally!”  Europe had a really looooooooong winter. It’s safe to say that this was the longest and snowiest winter we’ve experienced out of the 8 we’ve had (Germany and here).  We actually really enjoyed the snow, it’s just that we had a few false springs, where we thought the sun would start shining and then it would dump 2 feet.  I refused to shovel my driveway on the last snow.  But alas, spring is here.  And with it? Allergies.  I (Brad) am now carrying around a kleenex box with me, sneezing like crazy and sometimes just miserable.  Last night was my first bad spell…I’m hoping to grow out of this???  I’m not complaining though (not too much) because we are so grateful for the sun, to be able to wear shorts and  to open the doors of the house and have the kids play outside.  Here’s a few pictures from the last couple weeks.  I am itching to bring out the flip flops!

We are thrilled to be having another child in October!
