Oh man, I was just up there last weekend!

 

We live in Ansbach, and are new to Germany but love it.

 

How long have you lived here, and what are you enjoying so far?

We live about 20 minutes away from Ramstein, but we are not here with the military.  Are you new to Germany?  We have lived her about 3.5 years and will probably be headed back next Fall/Winter.

So happy to hear there is somebody out there :) We lived in central Germany for a year, and we moved done to the KMCC area Aug. 2011. I would be happy to meet with anyone with in the 45min area. I have met a few nice people so far, but I have to keep my mouth shut about parenting, so it's difficult at times. Please email me at [email protected] if you are interested in talking or meeting up!

Sarafi- I'd love to email back and forth, and if you are ever up this way again, maybe we could meet! Isn't ansbach about 2-3 hours? Either way, I would live to talk with someone else here in Germany!!!
Teeg1973- I live about a ten min drive from Ramstein base. I am having a hard time finding pediatricians, and people who understand something different then what's considered normal.

We have a four year old little boy, I stay at home with him, and my husband is in the AF.

Hello to Harm 526, teeg1973 and Sarifi,

 

   We don't have our orders yet...but it looks like my family may be moving to the area late summer early fall.  My husband is not active military, but a college counselor for the Army.  Have been here in Graf area Germany since Jan 2011.  Countryside life is getting old...will be glad to have better cultural and travel opportunities I hear, in K town.

 

    Have a 6 year old daughter and a 2 year old son.

 

Hope to hear back from you!

Hello to All

I am also living in Germany! I have been here since March '12, but have lived here before! My dh is AF and we are stationed at Spangdahlem. I live in a great little farming village about 25 minutes from base. I dont have much interaction with English speakers, but my Deutsch is getting better everyday. My neighbors have been wonderful and we have even had a couple of playmates over! Totally awkward, but the mamas here have been super nice. I get to practice my Deutsch!! I have a 5 yo and 1 yo both boys. I am definitely into sustainable living/lifestyle. I HB, BF, CD, And practice alternative forms of healing, well living for that matter. I know there are mamas out there like me, I'm just having a hard time finding them!!! I'd love to chat with anyone if you are close by!!!
My dh is into gardening, farming, canning, running, reading and more!

Marissa

I just got into Ramstein YESTERDAY! haha

I'm still pretty overwhelmed by the area but I'm hoping once we find a place, and I'm able to meet people, things will get easier!

Are you ladies still around K-town?  My family and I are moving there in June.  I would love to connect with some other mamas in the area.  I have a 13 month old son.

Yes I am here!!! I am organzing our first meet up June 19, 2013. I am hoping to have monthly support meetings. Hopefully this will bring us together. More info is on the yard sales page, I don't have FB. So if anyone can post on FB that would be great. I plan to meet at the park (depending on weather) across from TLF. If weather is bad, we will have meet up at my house, family friendly village and house. Please send an email to me, [email protected]

Hi there! I am in Wiesbaden, so about an hour north of where you will be. I'm aware of a pretty large natural parenting community within the KMC (Kaiserslautern Military Community). Look up Cloth Diapering in the KMC on Facebook to meet some AP/NFL moms prior to your arrival. Welcome to Germany!

Hi! I'm located near Frankfurt am Main and participating in English language la leche league meet ups as well as English speaking mom meets ups in a child friendly café in the city smile.gif Our moms are from the US, Ireland, the UK and many European countries, often with bilingual children.
The meet ups are open to anyone, so if you would like to stop by some time, feel free to message me here!
I have a 2 1/2 year old boy btw. and am currently a SAHM but will be returning to work soon. I feel he is ready for Kindergarten. smile.gif
I'm German, but have lived in the US (NY and CA) and my husband is from San Diego, CA.

Now were here and enjoying the travel and sightseeing possibilities, Nature, Parks, Zoos. It never gets boring.
