In December, when our household goods arrived and were unpacked, Gavin decided it was time to ride his bike without training wheels. It wasn’t dad that taught him (we tried before in Germany, but he wasn’t ready yet), but his big brother Tristan. Nothing like having a big brother to help you out. This is the result:
Really, I was just wanting a chance to test out Flickr‘s new video service. Just a little morph video showing how much Tristan has changed since we moved to Germany.
I found another interesting video ala YouTube today (thanks to ThinkChristian)
I love how they did this; very interesting. Any thoughts?
I got a link to this video in my email today and just had to share it.It is a recording of a young boy who called a Houston radio station recently. The message is perfect for this season (and any time else,really!) Somebody is really raising this kid right!
In Kindergarten last year, Tristan learned the Preamble to the United States Constitution. We got it on video and I finally got it off the video camera. Enjoy!
This past Sunday we had some beautiful weather (finally a little bit of summer). With the end of our street blocked off, we don’t get too much traffic in front of the house, so I took the boys out for a “little drive”. While they fight and argue, the bond between these two is amazing. I thank God each and every day that He has given us 2 such wonderful boys to take care of.
All for one and one for all
My brother and my friend
What fun we have
The time we share
Brothers ’til the end.
Here’s another one that has a powerful message:
Not sure if any of you know who Casting Crowns are, but they are a fantastic Christian band that we have been listening to a lot lately. I found a great video online today for a song I really like, called “American Dream”. Take a look:
Hey everybody! I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas. We surely did! The boys were pleasantly surprised with what Santa left under the tree. We had a quiet Christmas morning at home. We first read the Christmas story from Tristan’s kids bible, then opened presents. After that, we had fun making “Omelets in a bag” where the kids got to make their own omelets and add what they wanted on them (except for jelly beans, of course!). They really enjoyed doing that and quickly scarfed down what they made. In the late afternoon we headed up to visit with some friends of ours in Darmstadt. It truly was a wonderful Christmas!

Well, Tristan’s fall soccer season is now over. He had a great time again, and really did a great job. I will be posting the rest of his soccer pictures in the photos area as soon as I am done weeding through them. In the meantime, below is a slideshow that was given out to all of the team members at the end of season party:
