One Year!

One year ago today, August 30th, Aaron & I left for our 2-1/2 {which turned into 3} month assignment in The Netherlands.  Time flies by so quickly!

Tomorrow we get on a plane after being in The Netherlands for just about 6 months, to go back to the States for a week.  It doesn't seem real that we've been here for almost 6 months already!!

The weather here has been the pits! Absolutely the wettest summer I have ever experienced in my life!  Looking forward to enjoying what the forecast is for Portland for the next week .. I see some sunshine in my future!  And I'm sorry guys, but I'm taking it back with me!!!  This raining every day is for the ducks, and I am no duck!  Please forgive me. :)

No pictures to share, because as stated earlier, its been raining, and I don't want to get the camera wet and ruined!

Hope you're all having a great day!

Yes we are still alive and living in Europe!

Umm .. sorry ... I know its been a month since I was here, but not much has really happened in that time.

The weather has been, well, less then cooperative for going out and doing touristy things.  I think in this last month we've had maybe three or four days of no rain at all, but even that could be a stretch in thinking really.

The only thing of interest that has happened really, is this :

According to the doc's I'm due around the beginning of March. :)

So other then sleeping, sleeping and some sleeping, I haven't gone out in the rain other then to get groceries most days!  I have been sooo tired, which thankfully has been my only "morning sickness" symptoms.  Late afternoon and evenings I get a little nauseous feeling, but thankfully that is all!!

Right now we are getting ready to head back to the States for a week of crazy busy insanity visiting friends, and for me to do some maternity clothes shopping, since that is utterly expensive here!

After that the blog should get busy again, as a friend is coming to spend a month here with us.  We are sure to go out and explore while she is here, so I'll have pictures to post, stories to tell and experiences to share!  Praying we have nice weather like we did last fall, so that we aren't carrying umbrellas and wearing layers!
