As I reflect back on to my posts from Twenty Days in Germany I have to laugh at a few things….
First, I did not know how to spell most of what I was saying in German and I probably wasn’t saying any of it correctly either. Also, I’ve managed to open our APO mail box on an almost daily basis now.
So after 90 days-
Roundabouts are a breeze
Recycling!! Especially the plastic bottles at the store
Getting around without the GPS
I’m volunteering at the USO
Kids are settled into school and their new life
Will orders eins brezel at the bakery all by himself with correct German words
I can use the train in London, Paris and Germany
Transformers aren’t really that scary, unless of course we’re talking about Megatron
I have an Esso card now and have to get my own gas…;/
I’ve figured out dotted lines at intersections mean right of way is in effect
I’m washing and drying clothes like a pro and teaching the family too
But, most importantly I’m taking German lessons I’m in my second week so here it goes….
