Polish Preschool hunting
It’s that time of year again….preschool hunting. I know you, like us, look for the best schools for your children. Their education is very important. So as we look between different local schools we are anxiously looking at the Polish school we talked about Emma attending last year. We were not able to sign her[…]
http://life-love-laughter.tumblr.com/post/4431940058/a-great-reminder This is so encouraging to be reminded that we are all right where God wants us and just in time for everything. We’re never late…even when moving to Poland. 😉
Looking at learning Polish as a whole, seems like a massive mountain that is impossible. It seems I will always sound silly and unable to make the ‘normal’ sounds Poles make. One example, rolling your tongue. I have no idea how I was jipped while I was being created in my mom’s womb but I[…]
Weronika and Alexis
Weronika and I. Weronika, I had such an amazing time getting to know you more and I SO look forward to being able to get to know you better in the near future! Love our friendship. Do you have friendship you wished were better? This is one for me. We get along great but there’s[…]
Chris and Travis
We were able to take some pictures of each other while at our last visit. I think you can totally see the friendship the two of them have with each other. It’s awesome. It helps also, that I was behind the camera saying ridiculous things to make them laugh. There is nothing more beautiful than a natural[…]
We’ve been ‘home’ for about 2 weeks and when friends have asked us how our trip was, we’re finding it hard to explain. Yes, we were able to express about our time with our friends but it seems less and less like a foreign place where we need to process what we’ve seen/experienced/done. It seems[…]
Some more of Seattle
Here are some last pictures from our trip to Seattle. They HAD to take a ferry. We insisted. 🙂 I think it’s impossible to go to Seattle on a summer day and not fall in love with the city.
We were given FABULOUS Mariner tickets by my dad and step-mom for our Polish friends to experience an all American baseball game. And it was fabulous. In every way. No kids, great weather and the best seats I’ve ever had. Oh and it gets better- we actually won! It was a fabulous time and we[…]
All of our hearts are melding more and more with each other everyday.
a mama’s love.
a mama’s love is infectious and soothing. A snuggle, able to heal most injuries of the heart. A mama’s laughter enriching. Mama’s that enter their children’s worlds will live forever in the love and respect of future generations.

We left our heart in Krakow
There are days when it hits us harder than other days. Feelings of being disjointed and held back. When the thing we want the most is to wake up to a morning in Krakow. See our friends there, go to language school, walk their streets and make a close relationship with their culture. These heartfelt[…]

Polish Apple Cake (Szarlotka)
I made a Polish Apple cake that turned out great. Go HERE to see/read more. 🙂
There is a constant tug of war with my attentions and heart when it comes to Poland and living here. Take preschool for Emma. Travis and my hope was to enroll her into preschool IN Poland. Not here. But as our plans changed, so did the details- like Emma’s preschool. Yet through all the changes our[…]
“No matter where you move to, you better like some of the food. Other wise you’re toast.” Just some special very wise words I got from a missionary friend. 🙂 But this got me thinking about my, me being Alexis, first couple trips to Poland. I went to some of the traditional places that basically[…]
