Guten tag from Switzerland!
We made it! It is amazing. We might stay here forever.
We are still a little jet lagged but are adjusting. It is 6 hours ahead of EST.
We got in Wednesday and got oriented to the new apt and our immediate surroundings.
Today, Thursday, we walked into Baden and looked around a little more. The boys had a great time and we were fascinated by just about everything we saw. We ate out today and that will be the first and last time we do that. It cost us around $54! OUCH We had two kebabs, and the boys ate chicken nuggets with fries. We shared a drink. The boys nuggets were $1 a piece. Yes you read me right $1 a piece and they were regular size. Amazing. Were going to have a great time we will just be broke when we get home!
It was raining most of the day today. The clouds were low and it reminded me of a scene out of Peter Pan. We are truly feeling blessed.
Our apt is great. Big and spacious. (Especially compared to the hotel room we were in for the last 6 weeks!) Very modern. It looks like it is straight out of an Ikea add. Someone met us at the airport and took us to our home. A different woman was waiting at the apt. and showed me everything. They had it all set up ahead of time. We have seen lots of kids out playing and there is a playground right outside our building.
I tried to call the bishop at home tonight but there was no answer. We are looking forward to going to church on Sunday and making new friends.
I took some pics today but we are not unpacked yet and I do not know where the cords are to download them from my phone. We will try to add them tomorrow. We love you all.
