From Spring In Belgium To Summer In Germany
So much has happened and so few did we let you participate.... but that has come to an end!
We updated our gallery with pictures from March to June.
Boy did we work hard the last couple of months. Time flew by for us.
The assignment for Agnes - which lasted for more than a year (!) - will come to an end next week. She commuted back and forth between Nurnberg and Brussels for the last couple of weeks.
Oh, which brings us to our little summer resort and our move to it. On May 14th, 2005 The A and B and C moved to Nurnberg, Germany! Some lovely pictures of that move can be found here http://www.theandb.com/galleries/MoveNurnberg .
The environment is very beneficial for our little Cille who enjoys greatly the nature this city offers and which is nearby. If it is a play in the park 5 min. walking-distance away (she adores swings in particular), a swim in a lake 15 min. away by car or simply the green trees swaying in our backyard, her health and mood have greatly improved. No more coughing or colds. Only a happy Cille.
The reason why we moved to Nurnberg were manifold. Both Agnes and Cille are now able to catch up on their German and Bjoern is much closer to his current assignment (the secret mega-project). TheB is grateful for the support he receives from his two girls. Also, he does not have to travel back and forth between Brussels and Germany. Plus, his girls have much more of Papa, especially petite Cille while Mama is away in Brussels.
We of course did take some time off from work here and there, however rare. In March, we went all the way up to Zugspitze (from the German side) and re-experienced the magic of snowboarding!!! See for yourself under http://www.theandb.com/galleries/Spring2005 . Thnx to the babysitter there who allowed The A and B to have some hours alone for themselves on the mountain hillsides. We were one hell of a sight to behold, boarding in unison and parallel to each other down the slopes on our boards.
Then there was the baptism of Marion ( http://www.theandb.com/galleries/Baptem_Marion ), the second child of Bruno (brother of Agnes) and Sylvie (his dear wife), which took place in Saint Sulpice. Many of you will remember this wonderful castle with its welcoming hosts Henriette& Claude (who - after decades of pure love - were finally sworn husband and wife this year; but that is another story to be told...).
Do not be surprised if you miss Bjoern on these pictures, he caught up with The A and C only on the 2nd day of the event as he took a training in London in User-Interaction Design (yet another story of its own).
We truly hope to have overwhelmed you with news. It was about time you heard from us, wasn't it?
Try to catch us if you can in real life! There is always a guest couch in our apartments.
More on the coming months soon. One highlight for sure will be our immigration to Australia which we are looking forward to greatly. We plan to be in Sydney early beginning of next year.
As much love as we can bear to give you from
TheAndB plus Cille
