The picture above is the village of Lupburg, our home away from home while in Bavaria. Our house is on the right, below the onion dome church . The people are friendly, helpful and best of all, love to keep things "in order."

Living life in the 1800s

Over the past month, as we've adjusted to life without all the electronic comforts vying for our attention,  Lilly discovered the joy of reading.  This morning, I found her curled up in a super-warm quilt reading her new chapter book, Heidi.  Perhaps inspired by our recent trip to Switzerland, or maybe just because Heidi has an adventurous spirit not unlike Lilly's, she is entranced by the story.
