We found a house! The village is Queidersbach and it's absolutely lovely.
The landlord signed the papers this evening and after some processing by the military housing office next week (during which we'll vigorously cross our fingers and try not to think about it) we should get the keys next Friday.
We love everything about it, and there's a pear tree in the back yard.
It's Friday night and since we arrived on Tuesday we've managed to open a German bank account, get our temporary lodging fully set up, get German iPhones, start in-processing, join the gym, choose a village (we did choose the village first) and find a house, all with the kids in tow.
We're feeling very, very lucky and rather pleased with ourselves.
