When your busy, time flies. This was the fastest October ever! In addition to a busy work schedule and new, harder school for all the kids, we had a lot of additional things going on.

Cheryl's parents came out for their second visit. It had been two years since they had seen the kids, and at that age a lot changes in two years. They also got to meet Jack. He loved them... and never let them out of his sight.

Jonah and Ashlyn and I took them out to Berlin on a cold day to show them the sights and the history. The kids enjoyed a classic of Berlin cuisine, Currywurst!

Cheryl and I took advantage of their visit and the fact that we live so near it to visit Paris for our 15th Anniversary.

To cap the month off, we had a family visit us for a week so we could get to know each other and show them the sort of work we are doing. The kids had a blast carving up pumpkins and sharing our strange American culture to the neighborhood. We got some nice reviews!

October ended as usual with a cold front blowing in and sending us below freezing. Jonah and I spent a lot of the day outside helping some friends move out of their apartment. Before we knew it the whole month had flown by.

Time to start playing Christmas music!
