in other news...


- i failed my driving test as previously mentioned. here's the thing. shane didn't study and he missed 7. you can miss up to 15. so i thought, maybe i don't have to study...i missed 27. that's right. shane has a gift, i don't have it. it's confirmed. so, i'm re-testing tomorrow. ugh...

theo is the proud owner of 1 barely seen shiny 
molar. this little tiny bit of tooth has been haunting us for - well forever it seems like. i'm sure as the rest of it surfaces, as well as it's 3 counterparts, we still won't be getting much sleep and theo will continue to scream. sigh.

his new favorite things to do are be a puppy, in that he crawls on the ground and will come up and lick you, and also play with cars. complete with sound effects. so sweet.

we think we have found our house. we will know for sure tomorrow. it's actually between two right now, but we are very happy to have a choice to make...

we went to the american church on sunday. it felt very american, and comfortable. i told shane that i felt like my american self was cheating on my german self. i so desperately want to learn the language and make this experience authentic. i constantly find myself reminding myself to seek the challenge. it's difficult.
we ate turkish food for dinner last night. it was our third time at this particular place. it's called star 2. there  are alot of these kebab places out here. the meat they cook is turkey (they call it doner, pronounced doo-ner) and they shave it off of this huge rotisserie, make fresh flat bread and then make these delicious sandwiches. they add a yogurt sauce, kinda like taziki. last night i actually had a falafel plate with couscous and salat. the best falafel i've ever had.
one of the best things about these places is that they make fresh pizzas too- which happens to be the perfect combination for my little sharps.
who knew the turkish could make such delicious pizza??

So happy the kids had a good first day at school. They should be old pros at new schools. Car is very tiny and very shiny red. Go Hogs!
Ha. Food looks delish. Anxious to see pictures of house as soon as you close the deal. Loving and missing all of you. Hugs to Theo for his teeth woes. Or should I say "a lick to Theo?"
