3. Name some of your favorite teams in sports.

Micah: "I like the Styrian Bears and the Eagles, the Lions... ummm.... what are the names of all the other teams, Momma? Oh... and the Rangers."
**We are troubled by his mentioning of enemy teams of our favorite home team... the Dallas Cowboys. He likes to get us riled up and a couple of the guys on Danny's team like to brain wash our kids.

9. What is your favorite thing to do outside?

Nate: "Micah, stop copying me all the time."
Micah: "No I'm not... I can roller too."
10. What are your Hobbies?
Micah: "What are hobbies?
Nate: "I know! It's stuff you like to do. I like playing the drums and karate on Saturdays... and Tennis."
Micah: "Run, play soccer with Buster (our daushund is freakishly good at playing soccer), ride my bike."
11. What is one of your favorite vacations you can remember?
Nate: "I like the water park in Slovenia we went to a long time ago."

Me: "Are you sure? I don't remember our family ever going there."
Micah: "Yeah, it was the time we went with Fabian and Felix and their family."
**I am confused and then it dawns on me....
Me: "You mean, the ZOO we went to that is about 20 minutes away from our house here in Austria?" (we went last Spring)
Micah: "Yeah. That one."
**Yeah, that kid keeps me on my toes.
