We've been here three weeks!

It is hard to believe that we've been here three weeks. We've had a few major accomplishments this week. Our airfreight arrived on Monday, so the kids have lots more toys to play with. Rowan enjoys pushing his cart across the balcony when it is warm enough (It has snowed multiple times.) The airfreight also had the DVD player, which is currently being used to play Cookie Monster's greatest hits.

Another big accomplishment is that we got a TV that actually seems to work. The video on the the first TV stopped working, so we were without a TV for about a week. Speaking of TV, the only english channels are CNN International, CNBC Europe, and BBC Prime. The remaining 35 channels are in French, German, or Italian. I think the Simpsons is in French.

We purchased car seats last night, but have run into an issue. The car seat we purchased for Niamh is for children age 9 months to 3.5 years, so we assumed it would be rear facing. It wasn't. We are now investigating other car seat options.

We're about to head out to the MMM Migro for groceries. Migros are either M, MM, or MMM. The more Ms, the bigger the store. The one near our house is only MM, so it is about half the size of a normal Safeway. The MMM store is about double the size of a regular Safeway and sells clothing, electronics, food and all sorts of good stuff. I guess it is similar to a super Target.
