Today we share all about what it’s been like for our American kids to live in Germany! This will be a two-part video and post. The first part is all about daily life and what they like to eat, how they play, and how their lives have changed. The second part will be all about going to German school!
In February of 2021, we picked up our American family of six, with four kids ages 11 and under, and moved halfway across the world to Germany to follow our dream of living in Europe again! When we were first married, we lived for two years in France and fell in love with the European way of life. Moving to Germany has been a whirlwind, especially with four kids in tow, but we’re already growing stronger and better from the experiences we are having. It has NOT been easy, but that’s how it usually is in life when you go after your dreams!

What American Kids Think of Germany
Here’s how our kids are adjusting to life in Germany as Americans. We moved to Germany with our four kids in February of 2021, not knowing much German. The kids have adjusted SO well! This will be a two-part video. In this part, we talk about what they have loved here from the bakeries, to the ice cream, to the playgrounds and more! And next week it’ll be all about how they’re doing in school and a little bit about how the school system works here (it’s a lot different than in America!). Hope you enjoy the clips in the beginning with clips from our daily lives and day trips in our region!
