So tomorrow after school we will be parents :) Ha ha that just sounds funny to me :) We are having one of our freshman boys live with us for about 10 days while his parents are away on a missions conference that they are speaking at. It will be interesting to see what goes on in the life of a 9th grader especially as we will have him during the Jr. Formal, which is a very important night for all high school students. Who knows the fun I can cook up for that :) Anyways, for all you parents of teenagers out there send up a few prayers for us this week as we will be parents of a teenager. We will have to keep y'all posted on the events that unfold :D

Easter Markets

Well, we made it! We are finally on Spring Break, and this break could not have come soon enough! I have had the flu and then bronchitis for the past two weeks and Josh has been very busy with teaching and basketball. But God knows when we need a break and He has given us one this week. We are excited to get refreshed and back on our feet to finish up the school year strong. So to celebrate me not being so sick anymore and the beginning of Spring Break we headed out to an Easter Market. These are pretty much like the Christmas markets that are all over Vienna during Christmas but they only sell eggs :) And oh how beautiful all the eggs are. There are millions of eggs all over the place with beautiful pictures or designs on them. Josh kept asking me which one I wanted to buy and I could barely wrap my head around all the eggs. We had a great time looking through them and picking out a few to put on an Easter egg tree which are very common in Austria. So here are some pictures to give you an idea of what an Easter Market really is.
Have a blessed Easter with your family and thank the Lord for His son and dying on the cross to give us all such amazing lives in Him!
