Our First Sunday

Today we had to wake up early to get breakfast before we caught the train to Zollikofen for church. Kelly was worried about her young women's class, but she actually thought it was quite fun. We met several people who had been emailing us, the Kidd's and Müllers, and many other families. Meetings were entirely in German... and the FM systems to broadcast translations weren't quite working because the missionaries doing the translating didn't understand Bern-Deutsch very well. But Kelly had a translator in young women's which worked out really well. The Müllers, Thomas and Olivia, had us to their house for dinner with the Kidds who are moving to London next Friday. That was a great dinner, and a lot of fun. Later, they showed us around the school and some available apartments in their village of Schüpfen and have nearly persuaded us that we should live in the country. They then drove us back to the hotel through beautiful country roads. Thomas is going to help us meet one of the landlords tomorrow. The Mullers have five children, none of which match up to our kids grades, but they are close. Their school actually has class every day and every afternoon, except Wednesday. This is different from the other town we are looking at which has school only two afternoons for Josh and three for Kelly.

That evening we walked around downtown Bern where people were literally dancing in the streets. After living in Bern for four days, I totally get it.
