This year I (Amy) am directing MOPS RS in Heidelberg. We are a ministry that takes care of mothers of preschoolers. Our group is very international. This year we will be doing the meetings in English and German. We also hope to bus a few women in from one of the refugee camps in Heidelberg. We are going to begin paying for the child care. And when there is good child care the moms can relax and really rest. So Juergen and I do not need anything for our wedding Anniversary. If you have been to our house you would agree we need to get rid of stuff. But any donations you can bring for the MOPS RS child care fund will be greatly welcome. And we very much thank you for this!

Wow! I can hardly believe it is already August! My family comes in a few short weeks. The plan is to travel for 10 days in Italy. Then when we return, we set up the tent and decorate for the party. I ordered these really pretty blue and white napkins for the table. i think they look very mediterranean. I want to use straw bales for the chairs. After the party I hope to recycle the strawbales and tent. Yes I bought another tent. It is 5x10 meters and with a strong steel frame. We hope to build a greenhouse with the tent, and raised garden beds with the strawbales. There is a new refugee camp only 5 minuts away. There are 200 refugees there with a need for something to do. If it is allowed, we would like to build them a garden. I will need help decorating for the party, and prepping the food. If you have time, come over on September 11th at 10:30am. we will start putting up the tents.

I'm thinking of buying or renting a big tent for the party. You really just don't know what the weather will be like in September. Hopefully it will be good, but if it's not we will need a tent.
I’ve read you can keep peonies (Pfingstrosen)for 6 months in the refrigerator if you wrap them in paper. They need to be dry and you need to cut them before they bloom. So I cut a big bunch this morning, and wrapped them up for our anniversary party in September. I should have lavender and roses to go with the peonies. I hope to place the flowers on the dessert table. I’m not sure many people will notice these flowers out of season, but I will know they are very special.
