Germany – first day

So we all made it to Germany – including the cat.  Trust the cat – his first flight and he lands in business class.  Which was fun for all, especially Chelsea.  We are staying with a wonderful family called the Struckens.  They have a son a little younger than Chris, one daughter a little older than Chelsea, and one younger.  They are patient with non-German speakers, and their son is going to the same school Chels will be going to in a couple of weeks.

Today, we went to most of the eight churches Father Roland is priest for.  They are absolutely beautiful.  One was from 1154 or so.  WOW!!  We are staying in Turend (sp?) until the house is finished, but we did go through the house we’ll be living in.  I really like German architecture – big living room windows, not humongous rooms so save on utilities.  The house is three bedrooms, furnished, small backyard, right in the middle of the old part of Susterseel.  AND the donated car is an automatic, but we have three bikes too and are planning to add another – gas 8.00 per liter makes non-auto travel very attractive.  We also went to Holland three times today.  Jet lag is kicking in, so more later.

Have Fun with God

Then I decided to spend my time having fun because I felt that there was nothing better in all the earth than that a man should eat, drink, and be merry, with the hope that this happiness would stick with him in all the hard work that God gives to mankind everywhere.
