Joelle’s turning 8!

Eight years ago our small family got complete. We’re so proud of our “independence” girl. We love her unique laugh, her kindness, her endurance in soccer (an example: 5 times 3 hours soccer in the evening at 35°C during a school week is not bad, right?), her greatness and her enthusiasm to learn new things. We also love her pighead, untidiness and her collecting mania. We love you sweetie to the moon and back – Happy Birthday!

Bye the way it’s also Independence Day today – the national day from the United States. On July 4, 1776, the Continental Congress declared that the thirteen American colonies now themselve regarded as a new nation, the United States of America, and no longer as a part of the British Empire.

Therefore big party: everything in red, white and blue. Barbecue, fireworks and music. We started the celebration yesterday at the whitewater center with biking, standup paddling and fireworks and continued this morning with a run: 4 miles for me, 1 mile for Joelle and a cool beer for Markus. After that was Joelles birthday bash on a small scale because we already celebrated her birthday some days before summer break on a little beautiful farm in Charlotte. Lot of fun for the kids with feeding the animals, grooming the horses, horseback riding, cake, pizza,…

Now we’re having a rest and we’ll restart in some hours with BBQ, beers, cake, music and for sure another big firework!

To that effect: God Bless America (and for sure Switzerland and the rest of the world)
Land that I love.
Stand beside her, and guide her
Thru the night with a light from above.
From the mountains, to the prairies,
To the oceans, white with foam
God bless America, My home sweet home.

Happy 4th of July to y’all 💙❤️🇺🇸❤️💙

Nach fast einem Jahr ist es nun so weit: ich habe hier auf English gewechselt. Tut meinen Englischkentnissen gut und euren hoffentlich auch.  Ansonsten copy/paste und ab zu Google translation. Ihr könnt beruhigt sein, mein English ist nicht ganz so schlecht wie die Übersetzung dort, aber den Sinn kann euch dieses Gadget immerhin übermitteln.
