There is way too much to try to tell you about Prague...but that is where we spent this recent weekend. It was an amazing trip even though it was a mesh of old world Baroque style buildings and graffiti trash of the Eastern Block of Europe. We took a guided tour our second day, and even though we spent the first part of the tour on the wrong bus it was a great way to see all the sites in Prague. Somehow the tour company believed we were Germans and placed us with the German tour group, which was fine, but I can't translate that fast in my head and then to Dave. So, we met up with our 'real' group on the first stop of the tour and the rest was grand! My other favorite part of the trip was Mason eating three real meals a day! Mason is our muncher, snacker, etc. On this trip he actually ate the entire plate that was put in front of him and has continued to do so since arriving home! I couldn't be happier! Instead of trying to explain all the wondrous sites we saw, I will just share some great pics!

Emma is officially a Girl Scout Daisy. She had her troop investiture ceremony last month and they are smack in the middle of cookie sales. I have to say, Emma is a natural. She just walks right up to those soldiers and lets them know that they will be buying some girl scout cookies! First, who can say no to cookies and second, who can say no to her? lol! I'm sure Dave and I are the only ones raising our hands. We went to visit Nuremberg last week while picking up an antique desk and had a lot of fun visiting the old fortress and new places to eat! Dave has a four day next weekend and says we will be going out of town, I'm hoping Prague or Brussels! He is busy in the middle of the advanced course, it is a requirement to continue to move up in promotions. I like this school schedule he is on though, 8-5 most days with some letting out even earlier! I think the kids really enjoy having him home in the mornings and evenings! I'm taking a pretty heavy load this semester of all senior psych and behavior courses, but I am loving every second of them. They are really helping to prepare me for my future in Counseling. The sacrifices and hard work really start to pay off when you can actually enjoy what you are doing! I am hoping grad school will be just the same! Love you all!!!
