With a title like that, I hope you feel a little bit or relief as to why there hasn’t been much activity here. After translating our school lists and figuring out where one buys said Matschose (pants for playing in the mud) the kids are successfully back in school. Man has it been a tough couple of weeks. We are once again dealing with transitions here and if you’ve followed along, you’ll know that those are really hard on our crew. This transition has been the hardest one that we’ve experienced I must say in quite some time. Like on our knees as much as we can be hard. Sometimes things are just hard and the only comfort is knowing that God is right there with me in it. I just wish I could push a magic button and have everyone speaking German, loving their schools and loving each other and spreading the love to the world. In reality however, almost the opposite is true and it’s exhausting. But… I have a few minutes to post a couple of pictures so I thought I’d share those with those of you who follow us by blog. If you have kids and school is back in session, I hope that your transitions have gone smoothly.

I don’t think any of us can truly comprehend how hard these transitions have been. Getting your kids into a new school environment is hard enough without the language barrier. I am so proud of you guys and your perseverance! Keep up the good work.
Much love from the Moores!
Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand. And we boast in the hope of the glory of God. Not only so, but we also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope. And hope does not put us to shame, because Godâ€™s love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us.
Well, transition struggles or not, they still are as photogenic as ever! Those are beautiful pictures. Praying for you guys. One day at a time. One step at a time.
Realize it’s tough right now in many ways. Firmly believe that some day you will look back and thank the Lord for the many ways you grew in your walk with Him through adversity! Great pictures! They smile like that all the time, right? 🙂
I am with Kirsten!! They sure are cute.
Sounds to me like magic is happening but in His time!! and “Hard is probably putting it lightly”.
I get scared going to a new location. Can’t imagine not being able to speak the language and ask for directions.
You are all on my heart when I get on my knees! Luv ya’s
