In what is becoming an annual tradition, our holiday greetings come to you from yet another new location. We are living in Wassenaar, The Netherlands, which is a small village north of Den Haag. Due to intercontinental postage costs, higher environmental awareness and general laziness, we are utilizing the internet to post our Christmas Card this year. We hope that you are not too offended.
To date, Mark’s Netherlands career has been as a house-husband. Despite all that time on his hands, our Dutch neighbor keeps asking if we’ve found a gardener (yardman) yet. That’s a pretty clear indication that Mark needs to step up his landscaping performance. Perhaps it’s all the time he’s spent on golf lessons, cooking classes and Dutch language classes. Whether being a stay-at-home Dad becomes a permanent career is still under review.
We are enjoying our life in Europe and invite you to visit. We are only 25 minutes from the Amsterdam airport and have plenty of spare beds and bikes. We have relearned how to drive a stick shift (on our only car) and would be glad to show you around. You can also visit virtually, via our blog, http://www.wassenaarliving.blogspot.com/.
Our best wishes for a beautiful and blessed holiday season.
Mark, Lori, Kate and Grant
