My summer was very busy - there was a vacation, my son started first grade and I went back to university. Right now, I have some time between lectures and it feels like I can come up to breathe again. I'm very sorry for not being here - but if you want to get a hold of me, my facebook page is always open :-)

The kids wake up around seven and get dressed for breakfast while my husband and i still sleep...no wait, that was a commercial... so, the kids wake up around seven and then shout at us until we get up, need help finding their socks etc.
We have breakfast with veggies from the greenhouse, cheese and homemade jam and feed the leftover cucumber to Maxi the goat afterwards. We get some food for the animals (dandilion leaves, mostly) and feed the bunnies, guinea pigs, ponies and goats. We usually take some animals outside, a couple of baby bunnies and the goats, perhaps.
The kids play at the playgroung while my husband and i laze around for a bit, maybe on one of the swings. At some point, one of us will go and get our guitars down so we can practise, Mr. Noodles will ride around on a bike for a while and both kids will help the farmer get the food for the cows.
We spent most of the day like this - helping a little, playing more. I highly recommend it :-)
A friend drove down from vienna today to play Dominion with us - we had a great time.

We headed to a public pool around noon and i swam over 1km at the pond.
We had a bbq back at the farm in the evening and finished up just before it started raining - and inside Mr. Noodles asked me to teach him how to play chess. He picked up all the rules right away and we ended up playing for quite a while ...

We wanted to look at some street parties by local volunteer fire departments, but they were not what we expected.
We know them as teeny tiny parties that go on all day, have some stuff for kids to do, let you look inside a fire truck or handle the big hose... this wasn't anything like it - they only started in the evening with booze and music...
So we went to a huge bakery instead where they let you bake your own roll, let you look into the factory and give you some free samples. The kids whre at the kids bakery and got to bake some stuff, too. After the tour was finished, i went to the nearby strawberry field to pick our own strawberries. I picked almost 3kg - thats six pounds!
We had dinner at 'altes presshaus' where we where a bit surprised by the food - we expected rustic and got fine dining - but it was really, really good.
