Catching Up

Hi there, Just wanted to say hi and let you know how we are. Many of you sent kind e-mails when my father-in-law was injured just before Easter. He and my mother-in-law were able to return to the US two weeks later and are doing well, though it will be several more weeks before he can walk again. 

Though our Holy Week and Easter turned out differently than we planned, we still managed to find a few bright moments. 

The mad race to find the Easter eggs was hysterical to watch.: )

The cherry blossoms were in full bloom and made us smile.

And I was able to make this lamb-shaped cake filled with raspberry cheesecake for Easter Sunday. 

After the Easter holidays, we had three days of school and then more holidays to celebrate May 1. We used the chance to take our bikes out to the forest and let the kids go. There aren't many places in Berlin where they can take off and ride as fast as they want. So much fun to watch!

Though it's rainy and overcast now, we also had some really warm weather, and enjoyed an afternoon at one of Berlin's many lakes. 

There were so many kids that registered for Easter Club this year that I had to turn several of them away. So, we decided to do a three week "Spring Club" (FrühlingsAG) that starts tomorrow.  I'll be sure to update you on how it goes!
