Tek aşkım ️ I love day dates together.⛰️
Benim güzel kız kardeşim
Language learning is a slow and many times humbling process, but then there are days you see some progress and you smile and hold onto those encouraging moments trusting you’ll eventually get there. We meet every day for 3 hours to speak and learn Turkish with Esma. I’m thankful for days when we can laugh at ourselves and enjoy the journey. This was one of those moments where we each had to act something out and the next person says what we’re doing. Kendall often does something “unique” for Chris to have to describe
The kids are on On Beş Tatil this week (15 day holiday). They don’t observe a Christmas or Spring break here but rather a break for the first of 15 days of February. We decided to also take a few days off from language and go to Paphos on the south side. To our surprise, we discovered a zoo, which our kids were very excited about and loved!🐅🐊 It was a restful break from the cold and rainy season here.
After the match and dinner, the team organized a bunch of games for the kids like musical chairs and a sack race. I enjoy how family is such an important part of this culture.
Last night we had such a fun time celebrating Chris and Kendall’s first year in Cyprus! We’ve so enjoyed having them here as a part of our lives and community and can’t imagine life without them!
Dean’s team has a game in Mağusa (an hour and a half away) so they rented a big bus and invited the wives and kids to join on an overnight trip together. We’re excited for this first trip with the team and our families.
