Day 2: Corpus Christi trip to Ikea

Today we were all on different sleep schedules from the jet lag, so we got a late start. Stores and stuff were closed for Fronleichnam (Corpus Christi) in Germany, but not across the border in the Netherlands. We are trying to figure out what it will cost if we get an apartment that doesn’t come with a kitchen. So, we went to Ikea. At first the kids were enamored with all the rooms they had set up, but once they got tired, they were worried that we might never get out. Everything was in two languages… German and Dutch. There were poppies growing as weeds in the parking lot.
Later, we got ice cream and went to the neighborhood park. There were pigeons and a free library. The kids played obstacle course and got their energy out. It was good to have a bit of a break. The kids fell asleep early. Tomorrow, we are back to trying to set up our life here…
