Summer Read Alouds/Sommervorleselektüre

We are not doing very much these days because it is too hot!  Only at night, when it cools down, we get out some read alouds and I thought I would share what we are doing right now.  We have several books going:

Wegen der großen Hitze machen wir nicht viel, nur abends, wenn es etwas abkühlt, lesen wir ein wenig zusammen.  Die folgenden Bücher sind unsere momentanen Vorlesebücher: 



Here is an abridged audio version.  Hier ist eine verkürzte Audioversion. 
 

  • Tirzah, mainly for Miriam, a living book about the Israelites leaving Egypt
  • Tirzah, vor allen Dingen für Miriam, welches den Auszug der Israeliten aus Ägypten beschreibt


It's our 16th German wedding anniversary today.  Peter spent this day with three of our wedding guests: my father, my mother, and my great-uncle in Switzerland!

Heute ist unser 16. deutsche Hochzeitstag.  Peter hat diesen Tag mit drei unserer Hochzeitsgästen in der Schweiz verbracht: meinem Vater, meiner Mutter und meinem Großonkel!  

Happy Anniversary, my Love!

  1. Einen schönen Hochzeitstag! Und egal, auch wenn man gerade nicht beisammen ist, kann man trotzdem - über den Ozean hinweg - feiern!!
    Wir begehen heuer in zwei Wochen unseren 21. 1.-Kuss-Tag und wie jedes Jahr erinnern wir uns bei dieser Gelegenheit an diese lustigen-romantischen Begebenheiten von damals. Die Kinder mögen diese Geschichte auch immer wieder hören, hihi :)))

    1. Danke, Sybille. 21. erster Kußtag, das klingt lustig! Ja, Kinder können sich ihre Eltern gar nicht jung und frisch verliebt vorstellen, deswegen sind solche Geschichten immer komisch für sie.

    1. Thank you! I thought it was so funny, that Peter was celebrating the day with a few of our original wedding guests! We got married "twice," once in the Lutheran church in Indiana (that counted as the civil ceremony in Germany, where you first have to have a civil ceremony and then you may have a church ceremony), and then in the Catholic church in Germany. Peter's relatives for the most part remember the American wedding and the German relatives the German one.

      A little over a week, then we will drive to the airport (Horror: ten lanes at one point I think!) to pick him up.
