Meine Kinder sind; Junges sechzehn (fast), Madchen zehn (fast), Madchen acht, Junges sechs
Entschuldigen, Meines Deutsch ist schlecht. I had to use FreeTranslation.com to answer all that in German.
For those of you who don't sprechen Sie Deutsch (speak German), she asked how old my kids were and I replied; boy 16 (almost), girl 10 (almost), girl 8, boy 6.
Then I said: excuse me, my German is bad.
As for the time it is 2:28 here so on the East coast the would be 8:28, Central would be 7:28, and so on.
We do have the Spring forward/Fall back here, but ours is a week before the states. We didn't know that and the Sunday we had time change we were an hour late for church!
The kids know some German, we were here (Garmish-Partenkerken actually) in '02 for 3 weeks and they picked up some then. It is hard in some ways to learn German, but there are some words that the English took from the German (ie. Kindergarten - here though that is a daycare not what we call Kindergarten). We are trying to get into class German language class at the Volkshochschule (which is roughly the Adult Ed. Center). But every time I have tried to call the phone is either busy, or the answering machine picks up and I have no idea what it is saying
I need to learn German so I can get into the German language class I guess
I'll try to get some pix to send. Right now, we are so busy trying to get caught up on school it is crazy. First Hurricane Rita put us 2 weeks behind, then I (finally) had my thorasic surgery (another 2 weeks), and lately it was a week off to pack and and a week to get used to the 7 hour time difference. That is 1 1/2 months behind. These poor kinder (children) are working their butts off - even doing some school on rainy Saturdays - so they can be off b/4 July.
BTW: German school is from 8 - 12, but most of the year round. Only 2 weeks off for summer.
