In Germany, Easter Monday is a holiday where extended family members get together to celebrate the occcasion together, and here David sits on the sofa between his two great-grandmothers in Bruch.
Many of my wife’s extended family were there in Bruch on Easter Monday, and here David sits between his great-great aunt and uncle.
After it seemed we had only just returned to Germany on this assignment to Hahn AB, no one could understand that we would be moving again so soon after only a year and a half at Hahn AB.
David shows his aunt and uncle his Easter egg that holds a yellow chick inside that chirps, while his two great-grandmothers share conversation together on the sofa nearby.
Using me as a pillow while we watch TV together on the sofa in the living room, David clutches his new Easter egg – still getting used to my being home again from the Gulf War.
David sits on his new tractor that he received for Christmas in Bruch, while spring was trying very hard to push winter out of the picture.
Demonstrating just how high the bucket on his front loader lifts on the front of his tractor, David raises his hands over his head – and I’m sure his Opa had some work for him to do with it around the garden.
Here David demonstrates that the bucket of his front loader goes down as well, and maneuvers the handle to show just how it works.
Showing a serious look on another day in Bruch while riding his tractor, David shows that the transition to becoming a young man is really hard and difficult work indeed.
