  7. hello there! Remember a long time ago I said we may end up in Hamburg? It's looking more likely. So of course my husband and I got into our first argument about it last night. International school vs' German schools? Yours are in German schools right? Any thoughts?? :)

    thappy@gmail.com - I'll take anyones' thoughts actually. My kids are 4, 9, 11, and 1. Yah, yah, yah... that's a lot of little people...

  8. THat's awesome, Tara!

    My kids are in German school but they also can speak German. Most of the expat moms I know do private/international school. It's expensive but I assume your husband's company will pay for it. The main differences with international school are:

    1. If you live in an area with lots of kids you're segragating your own kids from the local kids.
    2. You get some German in most international schools but it's not the same thing as immersion.
    3. German schools tend to be over earlier so you might have to worry about afternoon childcare.

    So it really comes down to what you want for them. There are definitely some great international schools.

    Take care,
    Laura
