All's quiet on the German Front...

well ok not quiet, but calm...well ok hectic and chotic and i want the weekend to come.

I hope everyone got out and voted today!!!!!!!!!! Reguardless of your chosen party it is important to be apart of what you believe in. This year was the first year i could vote (missed by about 3-4 months last time, along with most of my classmates). I am glad i voted. I really relealized during the last german elections that it was awful that i have no say in anything about this place where i live. oh well.

I have been so bad about taking pictures and updating, but we are at a stressful time right now. Maik is in University and it just started back up. Next week the rest of his classes will hopefully start. On the brightside we can start getting back into A routine, though on the not so brightside he will be gone till 9:00 pm on a lot of nights.

I am not doing so well with school. I find it awful that out of something like 9 or 10 classes that i am allowed to bring in most of my Abitur average depends on 3 classes. I really work hard and still feel that i am not doing enough. Also i have huge presentation in Religion and i haven't even started on it. I don't know where time went.

Desi is still working on potty training. i feel completely at fault for the fact that my 4-year-old is not completely potty trained.

I did find time to enter the creative team contest at I will leave you with my entries for assingment #1:

Lots of Visits today!

Hello everyone in Blogland!!!

Today was such a waste. i was so unproductive. I really just had no energy, even after two cappicinos (sp?). oh well.

Desi went to the planetarium today with DH's cousin. She really loves Desi. I was also happy for the 4 hour break. I don't know if i will get pictures from that though :(

My niece Hannah came to our house today. My sister-in-law is preggers (read: i have been so jelouse for the past 7 months.) anyway she had to go to her birthing class (? Geburtsvorbereitungskurs) yeah. I so don't get that. I mean she has had a child already i mean did she forget how it all goes? I definantly did not have any of those, then again my situation was very different. Oh yeah they want the name to be a surprise, but DH and i think we are really the only people who don't know. They refer to the baby as Mo-mo. We think the name is going to be Moritz. I don't like it, but it is there style. poor kid can't leave Germany.

Anywho Hannah came to our house today. I love that little girl. She even ate all her dinner. She and Desi played for a few hours and then they came back for her. Desi really needs some siblings. He has even started saying it. ´

Desi actually went to bed nicely today. I am so happy and sooooo tierd. hopefully i will have some time scrap the pics from today.

Lots of Love,

Raking leaves

hey there everybody. i am trying to start again with this blog. I have some pictures of Desi.

We went to the post office today to mail my voter regristration. We then went over to Danisches Bettenlager, a cool store with a little bit of everything. They usually have some good holiday stuff. Anyway, they had the cutest set of disney shovels and rakes, in pink and blue. The shovels were sold out in blue, but we so did not need that. LOL. Well here are the pictures!

Lots of Love,

Desi's birthday

ok so just to let the obvious be said. i suck at updating. i always mean to and sit down to do and then relize oh i need to do this or that. I really wanted to do this blogger thing as a way to show off my scrapbooking pages and since i type much better than i write everyone could actually read it. well anyway.

Desi just turned 4 on tuesday and today we are having his party with his friends. basically i am just trying to waste 10 mins. i will try to update more. i have some nice pictures from tuesday and i miss scrapbooking soooooooooo much.

hope all are well!

go potty go

today is a big day. desi managed to stay dry at play group today and then informed me that he wanted to take his nap in his big boy undies. i think have heard him get up about 15 time, but he as long as he is trying i don't care how often he gets up.

Desi decided to use my carmera yesterday. i of course didn't know about this until his papa caught him, just as he dropped it with the lense still out. needless to say he broke it. well Papa said oh mama i can fix this. i left him to it. today he gives me back the and i say "how did you do that" he says "i banged it on the table" i was speechless. of course what awaited us on my memory card left me even more speachless. Desi took about 50 pics of all kinds of things. some of them are really good. I will post them later.

i have million things to do and about 0% interset in doing any of them.

I hope all you are well.

love, amy

Nothings new in Germany

yes you read it right. nothing is new here. except that i got my hair cut yesterday. My hair was really long. I mean down below my waist. now it hits just under my shoulders. It is a real change for me. i loved my long hair, but it was too much to manage. I think i look older now.

Desi also got his hair cut. he looks like a boy again. his hair grows so fast. it's like harry potter or something. we leave for the US in 5 weeks and i know he will be needing another cut before then, but i figure i will just get it cut in the US because it so hard to explain to the people here how i want his hair too look.

Since i am new i will tell you all about the a little thing i like to call "The potty training challenge" in other words "why is my almost 4 year old still using diapers when he is not asleep!?!?!?" yes i am going nuts over this, but we are making progress and on desi's behalf i want to share with the whole blogging world: Desi wore big boy pants to playgroup yesterday (3 hours) and was still dry when i picked him up! now lets see if he can do it again today. that would be so nice!

I also saw a sign today when i was leaving the kindergarten that the end of year party is now moved from the 5th of July to the 4th of July. well that just sucks because i had plans to celebrate the 4th with desi (he is american and doesn't even know it). Oh well in the spirt of the 4th i finished some digi scrap pages from the last time we actually celebrated the 4th which was in 2005. Enjoy!

Ok i think i got it this time. blogger is a bit confusing if you are new to it. hehe. so i suppose i will introduce myself. the first think you should know about me it that i cannot spell. no matter that i was in IB and AP classes and excelled (we're talking straight A's and now 1's) in English. i cannot spell. i am sorry. ok enough about that more about me!

My name is Amy and i am 21 years old. i currently live in northern Germany, but i am from Arkansas born and raised. I have an almost 4 year old son (yes i will save you the math i had him when i was 17, big whoo i still graduated and moved up in life). I moved to Germany to be with my now husband and Desi (my son) just had to come along, well what did you think i would leave him!?!?!?!?! so now we all live happy in a nice house in a country where i hate the language. no, but really German is hard. I was unable to go to university here because American diplomas are not good enough, so they gave me the option of getting my German abitur, which is basically a high school diploma in German. that is where i am right now the end of the 12th grade (again sort of). I will be in the 13th grade next year and then hopefully i will pass and go onto university to study English despite my spelling disability. After that i hope to pursue my dream of being a...get ready for some cool German...überqualifizierte Hausfrau und Mutter which in English is an overqualified housewife and mom, but it sounds better in German i think. really though my dream is to be a SAHM. ahhhhhhh what a life to actually know what children are doing!?!?! for me to take them to school instead of the other way around!!!! yepppers! i hope to make a lot of friends here!
