The reason for my absence...

Been absent here for a while, but had a good reason.
My mom was visiting, Hannah graduated from high school, we enjoyed our days and some day trips together. 
It's been wonderful!

Schon lange nichts mehr von mir hoeren lassen, aber ich hatte gute Gruende.
Meine Mama war zu Besuch, Hannah hatte high school graduation, wir haben unsere Tage miteinander genossen und einiges unternommen.
Es war wunderbar!

Day trip to see Desoto Falls and Little River Canyon - again.
Tagestour zu Desoto Falls und Little River Canyon. Waren schon oefters dort, immer wieder schoen.

 Went to the high school to watch Hannah get recognized for getting a scholarship to UNA. Proud grandma right there. :-)

Einen Morgen sind wir zur high school, da Hannah eine Auszeichnung fuer ihr Stipendium von UNA bekam. Oma war ganz stolz! :-)
                                                  Day trip to Andrew Jackson's Hermitage.

  1. Soaking up family time is definitely a good reason to be away from your space. Welcome back. Congratulations to Hannah!!!! Hope you guys have a great weekend.

  2. GREAT to see you back here again! I thought about you so much over the last month. Congratulations to Hannah for the scholarship! I know her Oma was delighted to be there to see her graduate. Your mom is beautiful and I see a strong resemblance with her, you and Hannah. Nadia is growing up so quickly and she is beautiful. I love the first picture of her...she looks as if she is contemplating something quite serious. I will e-mail soon...have a bit of sad news to share privately. Hugs to you, my friend.
