No, I won't miss the no pooping signs! I will miss the humor that my boys seem to bring to me every single day! The fighting, the arguing and the yelling seem to fade when they do something silly like this!

Before I go on with this blog entry, let me say that in no way do I or the kids blame Travis for moving as much as we do! As a matter of fact, it is part of who we are now. We are all actually a little nervous about his upcoming retirement and going back into the civilian life. EEKKKK!!!
Everytime we move, the kids are uprooted from school and must adjust to a new way of life, Travis must switch jobs, but he has a job waiting on him always, and I, well, I have to quit my job and look for another one. This is tough and this is what we are going through right now. I have been unsuccessful in finding a job right now. Every bite I get on a job here ends in disappointment. The latest situation is that I may have a full-time admin job working in the CDC, but I just found out that MWR may "give" this position to one of 13 persons who were promised a job by the director of MWR here. This is very disconcerting to me. He says that these people need jobs. What about me? I need a job too. So, now I am waiting and praying and hoping and a little crying from being once again disappointed about this. Heidelberg, so far has been the hardest place to find a job. Military spouses should not have this kind of trouble finding work anywhere. I have had thoughts of trying to figure out what I can do to fix this problem, but it seems very difficult. I will update here if I can find a way to make a contribution to why military spouses have such a difficult time finding employment.
I could use a prayer from anyone willing to say one! Love you all!

I have a very good friend who blogs quite a bit and she uses a program to show her pictures off. I copied her and used it here! If--and I am positive that there are--there are duplicate pictures, please just enjoy them twice! Once I figured out that I could do all the pictures in one show, I decided that I had had enough and just posted two!!! Enjoy!

Well, we did it!!! We walked our first Volksmarch! Maybe next time we'll do the 10K! We actually felt like we could have gone on, but my heel is still recovering from anouther long walk we ended up making about two or three weeks ago! Here are some pictures to enjoy!
Even Sassy had a good time!
This is the little park where it started.
Thomas and Sassy waiting for Travis and Colin to get us registered.
Little German House
Travis, Colin and Sassy walking through a German neighborhood.
More German houses. notice they are all built together, but they are all different! No two look alike!
This is looking up the mountain behind Heidelberg. We went part of the way up the mountain!
A Vineyard! Germany is known for it's wines and its vineyards! You'll see some grapes on the vines below!
Some foliage that we saw on the walk:
This is a grapevine growing over an arch. These were everywhere!
Pictures of the counryside. We're up on the mountain now....not too far up, but a little ways up!
Some animals that we saw along the way! There was a miniature horse, a sheep and a goat! Oh yeah! And a hedgehog that we came across! He wanted some ice cream really bad!!!
Now, last but certainly not least, we came across this cemetary. Now,
normally cemetaries do nothing for me, but this one was just beautiful.
Notice how close together the graves are and notice the chapel in the
background! this reminds me of a puzzle picture!
Well, that concludes our 5K tour of Heidelberg! More will follow I assure you! We hope to trek up to the castle soon and the river as well! Haley is going that way this afternoon with some of her friends, so maybe she will take some pictures of what she sees! See ya soon!
This is the dining area right off the living room and you can see the kitchen some in this one too. The cabinets in the background go through to the kitchen as well.
The main bath in the hall. It's not as nice as this photo gives it credit, that's for sure!!!
The hallway. On the right hand side are two bedrooms (Thomas and Haley's rooms). On the left hand side, Colin's room, the hall bathroom and then the master bed and bath and laundry. At the end of the hall, there is another half bathroom....no tub or shower in that one. We chose this apartment for the number of bathrooms it has. This is what we were basically used to having in Junction City...three bathrooms. The other apartments we looked at only had one, maybe two bathrooms and that just doesn't work well with 4 adult sized people and Colin!
I will send more once it looks more like home!

Anyway, we made it to Heidelberg! That is a picture of an old bridge that runs across the river. I didn't take that pic, but we have seen it before!
We are going to a Volksmarch in the morning. Travis and I have vowed to start walking more and this is one way we are going to take advantage of it. It will get the kids out and about and give them exercise as well! If anyone doesn't know what a volksmarch is, it is a kind of marathon, but you walk. They normally have several distances that you can take advantage of. This one tomorrow has 5K, 11K, 22K and a 42K distances. We will be taking advantage of the 5K! Surely you didn't think we would tackle anything more yet?!? Maybe by the time we leave we can try the big one! HAHAHA! Yeah right!
School is back in session for all of us!!!! WOOHOO! The kids started on the 25th of August and they seem to like it alright. I started back this Monday and I seem to like it! I started a new school that offered more of the degree that I wanted. I am in the Business Management program. Travis is back to work sort of! He is inprocessing right now, so his hours are sporadic. I have not found a job yet, but I am pursuing it heartily!
See you guys soon!

So, from here, we are headed to Heidelberg. Am I tired? oh yes....already. We will more than likely be in a hotel for at least the month of August. It's only the 9th......I am tired.....oh well, I guess that this isn't the first time and won't be the last time we have to go through this....so I am off to rest! See back here soon! The Wewers....

Our first part of the trip was to DeGray Lake just outside of Arkadelphia, AR. Now, before we actually got to the lake, we stopped at this roadside sunglasses vendor and we all got out of the vehicle....except the dogs! Well, you can probably see where this is going and if not, I will continue! We naturally left the van running because the dogs were in the car and we were only 6 feet from the van! Lacey, one of our dachsunds....decided it would be a funny joke to hit the lock button...now, this wouldn't be so strange if the doors actually locked the first time you hit the lock, but you have to hit them twice for the doors to lock! You guessed it, she hit it twice and locked her and Sassy in the ice cold (thankfully) running (we had just filled up...thankfully) van! After prying our door open enough to get a metal rod down through the opening and unlocking the doors (finally, after about 30 minutes or so!) we were once again on our way! (Lacey is pictured to the right!).
We visited with Terri and Tom and our neice, Liana and their dog, Cocoa. They came up from Pearland, TX, just south of Houston to visit with us. We really appreciated them making that long trip just to see us, even though we didn't get to see the fireworks!!!! Those lightening bugs sure were fun to watch, though! ;-)
Part two will follow in a few days!
