Everyday we have had new experiences. I remember how intimidated I was of going to the grocery store at first. Now, I can communicate with the dry cleaner (who doesn't speak of word of English) to find my husband's lost pants or give directions to someone. I know that these are little things, but I consider them to be small victories. We have both accepted callings in our German ward, even though our language skills are lacking. These callings are stretching us, but I am grateful for the challenge.
We feel so blessed to be having this experience. We really enjoy our life here. Simon enjoys his work. We have made some wonderful friends. We are getting to travel and see places that we have only dreamed about. We are getting to know a new people, culture and language. And we get to share this experience with our daughter. We are grateful for all of the support!
