Kirschhausen & Heppenheim

Some more photos of where we will live....

This is Heppenheim - a bit larger town than Kirschhausen. It is about 2 miles from the house and it is where we will do our grocery shopping and such since Kirschhausen is almost entirely residential.

The pictures below are of the road to Kirschhausen from Heppenheim.

It looks like Steve will travel May 21st. He will get internet, phone, etc. set up so that I can go and be able to work when I get there. We haven't figured out yet exactly what we are taking and what we're leaving behind but I don't think we will be taking much. Could be fun starting from scratch - think of all the shopping we'll do!
Steve's brother sent us driving directions to get from Plano to Frankfurt so we don't get lost. Check out step 26. Gotta love Google Maps. I thought that was pretty hilarious.
We have orientation in Boston on Friday with Raytheon. I'm not exactly sure what's on the agenda for that but I'm assuming they will tell us everything we could possibly need to know for the next two years. I'm hopeful that I will come away confident and fully informed - there are still alot of unanswered questions......I should probably start a list.

I love lists! Don't they make you feel so in control?

Okay, I really cannot believe google maps said "swim across the atlantic ocean". Someone at google sure has a sense of humor!

Hmm, I did not see any cuckoo clock vendors on the streets, hmm, hope there is one. One word ...Cuckoo Clock, oh wait thats two words....

It looks very familiar. I can't wait to see it, and we are coming to visit. Try my favorite restaurant - the Feldbergblick near the base of the Europaturm, and take Ashley to the Black Forest, pardon Schwarzwald, for her cuckoo clock. No "imports", you're too close to the source.

Now for the most important question. We never got you a wedding present (typical for me), and now your needs have changed. Hhhmmm, what to get you at this point??????? Jaquidon
