Now that I'm doing Brownie's I'm finding out how different 3rd graders are and how much girls start to change at that age. They have attitude, bore easily with my simple crafts, don't like their picture taken, complain, don't listen, and I could go on and on. I don't know what else to do. I can't do crafts that are to difficult, I have 1st graders as well. My troop is so big its hard to play games with such a large group. I have to ask them over and over again to sit or come to circle. What am I doing wrong? I'm to nice I guess. I feel like the older ones just run all over me. The younger ones can't wait their turn. I don't know how teachers do it. 20 kids to 1 teacher is just insane. I can barely handle 12-16 kids by myself. I think when I get back to the states I'm taking a backseat to Girl Scouts. I'll volunteer or something but that's about it. I miss doing Daisies. Now they were easy and simple and fun.

Well our phone bill was way to high this month. The euro rate doesn't help much though I must say in my defense. Guess I have to lay off the phone for awhile.
We are taking a vacation next weekend. We are going to some racetrack and then onto the Black Forest. I'm excited. Chuck went and rented a van for the weekend. I'm curious to see what kind of crazy German van we will be riding in. Should be interesting I'm sure.
Tomorrow night is our Brownie Girl Scout meeting. Then this weekend our whole Brownie troop and their families are all going to Sternenland. That should be a ton of fun. I'll take plenty of pictures.
Well not to much going on really. OH Chuck's CID packet finally got approved by the last person. So now he just has to wait for a school date. The "hurry up and wait" begins. Joy!

Well CJ's room has been a storage room since we have lived here and Kristopher's room was the playroom. Well this morning I moved all of the boxes in CJ's room into the playroom and all the toys and Kristopher's bed into CJ's room. OMG let me tell you, they have a TON of room in CJ's room now! I never realized just how big CJ's room was until today when we got all those boxes and crap out of there. Here is some pictures:
CJ's room is bigger than our dinning room and kitchen put together I believe! I wish we would have done his room like this a long time ago. Just look at all that floor space! Now how its going to go with the boys sleeping in the same room tonight is going to be interesting. Hopefully it will go well. They both fall asleep pretty quickly and easily. I got them boys trained! lol
Here are a few pictures of my little man. CJ fell asleep last night around 6:15pm while eating a peanut butter and jelly sandwich and watching Daddy play his racecar game.
He is so peaceful when he sleeps.

We haven't heard any news about Chuck getting into CID school so it looks like its going to be July before we come home. Which is when we were suppose to come home anyway, but I was hoping to get out of here early. Oh well. :(
We are half way through Spring Break and they are driving me nuts already. They are mostly just bored. So they ask me a million questions and I've played almost every game we have with them more than 2 or 3 times each. We are trying to switch Kristopher over to whole milk. Its going okay. He has his moments where he doesn't want to drink it and then sometimes he does. CJ is getting over an ear infection, but still kind of ill from not feeling well. Kailey is sitting on the couch right now watching Strawberry Shortcake. Cassie is over at the table writing something. I'm trying to get her to write and read more. All of the snow is pretty gone again. Only patches of snow here and there. Our snowman is long gone. It was knocked over within two hours by some kids. I'm so glad we took pictures when we did. Well I'm just rambling now. So I'll go.

Here is CJ with his new hair cut:
Here is me and my baby:
Sorry I haven't posted in forever. I promise to start keeping up better. I get kinda burnt out on updating it everyday and sometimes I just can't think of anything to post about. Chuck had a 4 day weekend this weekend so we have been cleaning, laying around, and did some shopping. This week is the girls Spring Break, so I should be able to get alot of pictures of all the kids playing this week. We woke up to a foot of snow this morning! So i'm hoping to take the girls outside after lunch to build a snowman. None of us have ever built a snowman so that should be a ton of fun! Of course, I'll take pictures. ;)
K here is one of the girls for you ;)
