Austria

The kids got a 10 day fall break, so Kurt started looking for a “Gite”(french word for vacation cottage) in Germany so we could go on our first trip in Europe. It had to have internet so Kurt could work and wanted to be able to visit Neuschwanstein, a concentration camp (Dachau), and Salzburg, Austria. . . . → Read More: Austria

Neuschwanstein

On our last day of our vacation, coming home from Salzburg, Austria, we stopped at the Neuschwanstein Castle in Germany. This is the castle that the Disney castles were inspired by. It sits all alone up against a beautiful mountain. The country is absolutely beautiful, a postcard picture everywhere you turn. King Ludwig had plans . . . → Read More: Neuschwanstein

I have to fight for computer time!

I would probably post more often but I have to fight to get time on the computer. I get time after midnight and by then I am just too tired. Today is our first day with no one home but Kurt and me. Miranda started school this week (finally). I can’t wait to start hearing . . . → Read More: I have to fight for computer time!

Who says the French are rude!

I have always heard that the French are rude! I have not found that to be true. Every French person I have had to deal with has been very helpful and kind. For example. Kurt and I went to the movies Saturday and watched The Social Network (in Version Original….English, yeah), after the movie we . . . → Read More: Who says the French are rude!

Happiness is…Picking apples on a beautiful fall day!

No one wanted to go picking apples with me, so I pouted and stomped my feet and made everyone get off the computers, ipods and itouches and come to the farm and pick apples with me.

A fabulous fall day in France!

Kurt and I celebrated our 18th anniversary today (it was really yesterday). We went to a little town, Hede, about 15 minutes from Geveze. It is famous for there Locks on a river that runs from St. Malo to the Atlantic (about 250 kilometers). We saw about 7 or 8 locks on our dreamy walk . . . → Read More: A fabulous fall day in France!

Tour of House in France

The Clement’s first day in France!

I was so jealous of Kurt being able to travel with all the kids on their very first flight. Aren’t they so cute.

Kurt had to take a bus from the airport in Paris to the central train station in Paris and get all these kids and their luggage on board. This is . . . → Read More: The Clement’s first day in France!

I have been in France for one month now! So much has happened and I will not attempt to write about all of it now. I will add it in on slower days.

Yesterday Kurt and I drove Miranda and McKala an hour and a half to the Stake Center (not a stake center like . . . → Read More:
