How to Winterfy Summer Clothes:

A guide for warm-weather people.

Step One: A wife-beater to keep layers where they should be and an added layer of warmth next to the body.

Step Two: The obligatory under layer to peek out under the main shirt.

Step Three: The long sleeved-shirt with the sole purpose of warmth.

Step Four: The accessory that is so nicely framed by the v-neck.

The final product:

Final note: take off house shoes before going outside.

My roommate is so cool

On Saturday Whitney, Chad, and Liz took their skills to the streets of Vienna.

Performing on the Graben.

The police checking their permit.

Two fans.

You know you're a great teacher

when your kids take what you've taught them at school and do it at home.

Last Friday I taught my kids how to make simple valentines. They learned to fold paper and make hearts. Then they glued the hearts on a piece of paper, wrote to and from and we passed them out.

On Sunday at church, one of the preschoolers walks up to her dad, shows him something and states, "Jonathan made this for me." It was an exact replica of what I had taught them to make on Friday. He's made one at home for her!

Ok. So not as academic as I could have hoped for, but SO cute!

Barcelona III

Last week I had the opportunity to visit Barcelona yet again. It's becoming one of my favorite cities. We saw most of the main sights, but also some I'd not yet seen. I love the Spanish language, I love the Sea, I love the architecture, and I love the people I've gone with.

This time around...

...we posed.

...we lounged.

...we caffeinated.

...we mimicked.

...we laughed.

Since my camera's dead I relied on Petra to take pictures...500+ of them. I'm uploading them onto Shutterfly, but it will be a bit before they're pared down enough for the general public.

Technological Black Thumb

Unfortunately my technology woes continue on. This time my laptop has decided to be quite temperamental and moody. Hopefully it will be brought into submission sometime soon.
