Take 262

7 Quick Takes Friday 
--- 1 ---
We did it! We found a way to watch ND football in Germany. However, a 3:30 game starts live at 9:30 p.m. here... Noooot exactly my best time of day.

A lot of kids learn "NO!" first when it comes to learning language... and Rowan definitely had, "NEIN!!" at the top of her German language list. She's a pro at saying No.

I have to admit that while this video is cool, it pales in comparison to the childhood memories I have of Mr. Rogers taking me to the Crayola factory... and yes. He took me. Personally. Because he was that good.

In Germany, there are never police on the side of the road monitoring speeding. They have both temporary and permanent cameras installed roadside... and those cameras work. And they take photos at 1 km/hr over the limit. It's actually quite effective. They're not paying for a person to give out tickets--and everyone gets tickets... and I think it really does help drivers stay at or below the limit. Fascinating.

Aren't my riders just the cutest!?

I'm sorry--I gave you false information. I said a few weeks back that Germany pays us to drink sparkling water... and it's not true. We pay a deposit... and get it back. It costs 17 cents to drink it. However, something else about this bottle world cracks me up--you pay a deposit and get it back for beer bottles. Not wine. Not jelly jars. Not gin bottles. Just beer. Funny? Happy Oktoberfest! Hah.

We've finished our first week of school and I've been sick for more than one week. Medicine starts today. Prayers oh-so-lutely-welcome. And the insurance phone rep told me to, "Get restful." So today? I'm gettin' my restful on.
