June 5: What a difference a year makes.
A year ago, we got off the plane in this strange, new place. Tonight, we watched a film (a really, really wonderful film!) at the Transylvania International Film Festival. Wow, where did those 365 days go?

May 12: Stone-faced.
These scary guys welcomed us to Prague when we toured the castle grounds and gardens. Good thing they’re made of stone and can’t jump to life!

May 4: Echo location.
Several prime tourist attractions in Romania are salt mines. We’ve been to the one in Turda, which is closest to us, a few times. This one is in Praid. The kids love running at breakneck speed through the big cavernous nothingness and shouting words that end in vowels just to hear their echoing voices. Hiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii! Whooooooooooooooa! Yeaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa! This works best when it’s not very crowded, like here.

April 23: All roads lead to …
… this amazingly confusing intersection in our neighborhood where the people turning left actually have the priority. A two-way street recently turned one-way only adds to the complications. When I drive through on the way to preschool every morning, focusing on the traffic wakes me up better than any cup of coffee!

March 3: Boots on the ground.
We made it to the playground for the first time in a loooooooong time this weekend. There was ice, snow, wind, mud, and chapped lips, but there was also sun. Sun! And fun. Fun! Come on, spring!

February 27: He shoots … he scores!
We took the two older kids to a U Mobitelco basketball game last night. My daughter, ever the competitive one, got really into it. She was cheering, chanting, shaking her fists, biting her nails, covering her eyes, and absolutely rooting for the home team. My son, on the other hand, had more fun taking pictures of the game, the spectators, the spectators’ coats, the spectators’ hair, his boots, his nostrils, and the ceiling with our little point-and-shoot. These are a few of my favorites from his portfolio.
