Nathanael got in!

Look who was accepted into the Vienna Bilingual School system!!!
We are so proud of him!

I mentioned back in Autumn that Nathanael and I visited his grade school's Open House.  Well, on Monday, January 11th, he had his interview for the bilingual school system, and we found out on that Friday that he was accepted!  We are so excited for this awesome opportunity for him to learn with other English-German speakers.  We are also proud of his progress this last year in developing both in school-readiness and in his pronunciation in both languages.  He'll attend first through fourth grade here, Monday through Friday, about 8am until noon.  In the afternoons, he'll still have time to keep being the crazy, energetic, creative, social kid he is.  I can't wait to see what these next four years hold for Nathanael!

At Heldenplatz for the National Holiday in October


Time for a Photo Shoot

While in London, Auntie Angie and Uncle Andrew humored us and took some pictures.  Considering how quickly we did them and with little preparation or forethought, I think they turned out alright. :)

A wee bit of snow

It was bitter cold when our first real snow fell.  The dusting last month didn't really count.
I finally took the kids out two days later, and Nathanael persistently attempted to build a snowman in the melting snow/slush.  Of course, his name was Olaf. ;)
