After returning from South America, we remodeled our Denver home built in 1890, had our son Silas, went back to cubicle life and then boarded a plane at 33 weeks pregnant to Germany. James had the opportunity with his company to take a one year assignment in Dortmund, Germany. His assignment ended up being shortened to 6 months which means we pretty much went to Germany, had a baby, snuck in a long trip to Spain, and came home. It was a crazy 6 months and one of the more challenging times in my life.
