the house update

After another long waiting period our new house is finally being built!
We took down our side of the building in July- it looked like the right side that is still standing and belongs to our future neighbours.
Within 3 days there was a house- of course not finished, but a house. :-)

We are very excited. There's still a lot of work to do but it finally takes shape. There are many things that need to be choosen and it's not easy sometimes to figure out what exactly we want/ can afford/ will fit together :-)
In the end of this week also the roof should be finished.

airport adventures

I did not write for a while. A few times I meant to post something and in the end didn't.

Yesterday we made a trip to the airport. We have a friend who works in the control-tower and he took us on a very interesting tour.
Amongst other things, we had the chance to see the fire department and make a short trip with one of the firefighter-trucks, we could enter one of the airplanes and sit in the cockpit and we went up to the 100 meter high control tower.

We saw airplanes land and take off. Neomi would have liked to take the waiting airplane to New York. Helen would have preferred to fly to Switzerland. Yotam was proud that he could push a button in the firetruck and activate the water cannon.
Thanks to all the people willing to show and explain us things we had a great experience.
