This was my favorite guy...haha.
I wish I had a good camera to show how it really looked, but I loved all of their costumeS!
Here is sweet Sylke, and her husband Christian! They are both so wonderful, and continue to make us feel welcome! Her husband doesn't speak English like she does but after Matt's game he ran up and put his arm around him and kept saying "Fighter, Fighter!" I guess Matt has a new fan!
Colton loved the parade as well, all of the little kids who were in the parade had candy in woven baskets, and they would go right up to him and wait until he opened his hand and place the candy in it!
So---this is the MBC (Matt's team) fan club! They are some good fans that's for sure!
This is Katrin, she is in the fan club and also speaks GREAT enlgish! She took me to the lake, and out for ice-cream and is such a nice girl! She got to march in the parade:)
More of the fan club.
They didn't have many floats in the parade, however, of course the basketball team didn't have to walk..haha, So they got to ride on one of the few floats there were. Matt is in the front trying to wave at Colty and all of his fans that I have won over for him :) Matt's games are going well. They have played 3, and are 3-0!! His home games are going to be So fun to go to, they have a VIP lounge which I am a part of :) where they have every kind of drink (and they serve them in nice glasses) and sandwhiches and deserts! It is open the whole game, so me and Colty will be making some trips up there:) Matt is playing well, everyone on his team is really good, so they are fun to watch.
So- I feel like All I have talked about is Germany and basketball, but I caN'T forget my little trooper baby! He has been So wonderful since we arrived in Germany!! He had a few hard days and I couldn't figure out what was wrong, and I looked in his mouth and he has another front tooth coming in and a fang (this will make 5 teeth), and his gums are bruised and bleeding-- I felt so bad that I was getting so irritated with him when he was in pain! Anyway, since the teeth broke through he has been nothing but happy!
He says DADA all day long, HE loves going to the basketball games where he gets SO Much attention!!, he goes with the flow all day as we have been kind of busy this weekend, and sleeps so great! I couldn't ask for a better sleeper! I have always had to lay down next to him to get him to fall asleep, but since we moved here I just started laying him in his little pack-n-play (his new crib) and he falls right asleep! He has still been sleeping 12 hours a night, in fact last night he slept 13 hours straight! I think he was a little exhausted from our crazy weekend!
Anyway, we love him soo much and are so grateful to all be in this experience together! It has not been the easiest, but definitely "An Adventure!" We are starting to get used to our lives here and I think it will be a great year!
Colton's many faceS!
Colton's many faceS!
Someone let us borrow their old high chair so we didn't have to go buy a new one and then leave it here!
So- Colton also has a new obsession with books. They are his favorite toy, he sits and flips the pages open and closed Forever!! It cracks me up!
-The people are wonderful (and they try so hard to speak English)
-When you walk into or out of a room, everyone shakes EVERYone's hand, and even sometimes gives a little kiss on the cheek!
-Trees trees Everywhere!!
-Eis Cafe's (ice cream shops Everywhere, and AMazing ice-cream)
-The weather (75 degrees and beautiful)
Hopefully I will find lots more things about this country we are living in. I am not going to say it is better than America, America is my home and there is NO PLACE like home:) However, we are here for 9 months and are trying to enjoy this time to experience a different culture! There have been days where we wonder why we are here, but having great experiences makes up for those hard days:)
