First off: exactly 7 months until the (predicted) move. We tentatively set a date of December 18 for the flight to the Netherlands.

As a thank you for Marco’s dad and his wife sending me an Easter card (Paaskaart) and a birthday card (verjaardagkaart), I wrote them a letter earlier this week.
(Yes, Marco helped.) First I wrote out what I wanted to say in English, and then wrote out what I thought it was in Dutch, and then later when I saw Marco online he helped me fix things. As expected, some sentences were pretty decent – and some were pretty screwed up!
It was a fun exercise. I need to do more of that. Underneath the letter, you can see my notebook with Dutch notes.
Oh, and you can also see that I accidentally held the letter at a bit of an angle when I wrote!
