November 9, 2015: We’re all packed up and ready to go! We’ve had a great summer living with Gan, but it’s time to say goodbye 😔😢😭.
As excited as I am for this new adventure, saying goodbye never gets easier. I will miss everyone dearly and it’s sad to think the kids will miss these years with their cousins, aunts, and uncles. I am praying daily for Dad’s recovery 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻.
Clara was happy to have her animals and made a bed for them.
She looks like such an angel (wish I had been this comfy).
Both kids were happy to look at the photo album of our summer that Aunt Erica made for us.
We had an eight hour layover in Baltimore 😧. When we finally made it through security, we ate dinner at the one and only restaurant. The kids were dropping quickly.
We were supposed to board the plane around 1 AM, but it turned out to be around 2:30. It was rough on everyone. Clara buried her head in the chairs and Benny picked strings out of his blankies.
The flight was long and painful but quiet and I think we all managed to get some sleep. We had a two hour layover in Germany where we had to get all of our luggage, go through security again, and then board the plane.
The kids really perked up when we finally landed and made it to our room.
