We made it here
The road is always longer then you think, but we are here. I guess when you have 7 people in the car there are going to be a few potty breaks. But the vacation house in Austria was very nice. So much nicer then I expected. We booked it for the return trip. My camera ran out of batteries, so I didn't get allot of pictures. But the alps were amazingly beautiful. And I'll try to take more photo's when we return. The kids were not such a great joy to travel with. Sarah (age 10) was especially hard to deal with. She would complain a great deal about how we would never get there. And Thomas didn't help. He would say yes, we will all die in the car. Nicole said no...that will not happen. And Thomas said, it could happen if we got in a car accident. Thank you son for the good thoughts. Sarah was not comforted by the conversation! But when we finally got to the house in Italy, everyone worked very well together to unpack and put everything away. They made me proud. And we had a simple Italian meal with Heirloom tomatoes, peppers, onions and fresh mozzarella on crusty bread with olive oil, and Parma ham. Nicole and I eat gluten free bread of course. But it was so good it had Juergen talking about retiring in Italy, not Thailand. We are also enjoying being here with our good friends. I hope they get some rest. They need it. Jessica isn't feeling too good. Please pray for her. I think she got a spider bite. And she also has a cold. But she loves her room. She remebered it from last year, and feels right at home. Nicole is painting, and Philip, Thomas and Sarah are playing soccer and swimming. It is a little cold, but only cloudy. Juergen and will hopefully get some time to read soon.
