We matched with an au pair! She’s from Germany and has experience with special needs kids. We spoke with her on two occasions last weekend and I guess we both had good impressions of each other and so we’ve agreed to live with each other for a year. What an adventure-y adventure we are about to embark on.
During the first phone call, she mentioned that she plays handball 3 times a week and after we got off the phone with her, Jeremy and I debated what exactly handball is. I argued it was like water polo without the water. Jeremy insisted it was like racquetball without the racquet. We mentioned to her on the 2nd phone call that it would be hard to find a local handball team since no one in the US (except for the 14 people that make up the Olympic team) plays handball. She laughed and said it was OK to not play handball for a while.
