A perfect week of summer...and I'm off!

So I have officially had one beautiful week of summer vacation and now I'm headed back to school.
In Germany.
I'm not complaining.
But it is a little bit hard to leave this beautiful town. The good news is we got some good hiking in last weekend:

And some good handstands in...

...and don't forget some good jumping in the sand....

....and we even rode bikes, like old times.

So I'm content with my week of summer. And I guess I'm content with spending the rest of it in Germany. ;)

Brb America.

The First!

Well a lot has happened since the last time I blogged....

And by a lot I mean EVERYTHING.
And by everything I mean this is the first time I've ever blogged.
Thanks for having me.

So I could write some lengthy post about how I've been meaning to start a blog forever, how I have always been too nervous and...blah...blah...blah. I have a lot of reasons for starting this blog, but I think this is the main one.

I haven't quite figured out how to post the actual video instead of just the link. . .I'm new alright? Give me a break.
Either way this needed to be shared. It's hilarious.

Moving on to my next item of business:
I seriously am going to Germany in a week. For a LONG time!
76 days to be exact.
Which is what I was going for when I got out the little calendar on my phone and counted them.
I have gotten quite a few comments/suggestions from people about what I should expect there, including the following:
1. Liederhosen
2. Beer
3. Grunting
4. Beer
BOOORRRRR. RING. <--- My opinion of these suggestions.
My four year old little brother could have conjured up these stereotypes. And he's 13 now. Which means he has existed 9 years since he saw that version of a German citizen on that episode where Rupert travels the world.

ANYWAYS...I really hope I find these stereotypes to be wrong when I get there or this could be really awkward.
Either way the countdown has begun. 8 Days until touchdown and I'm feeling good.

Happy Earth Day!
