|Great American neighbors|
|Sweet long-time friends and now our kids are friends!|
|Dear German neighbors|
|Almost a member of the family!|
|Friends for the whole family|
|Our wonderful landlords and more adoptive family members|
|Our diminished yet still awesome small group|
|See you in the States!!|
|More wonderful German neighbors|
|All the incredible MOPS moms! You all rock.|
|Mr. and Mrs. Wolf who always know what time it is.|
|Classmates and friends|
|New neighbors we had to leave too soon|
|Gotta love a lot of Jens. :)|
|The incredible ladies at the girls' German kindergarten who loved ours as their own|
|Two peas in a pod, albeit two continents apart|
We love and miss you all already! And there are so many more I don't have pictures of, but again, we are profoundly grateful to you all for being our family overseas. Know you are all welcome to visit in CA...once we get there!
The girls did a great job on the plane rides, watching tv and enduring the long flight from Frankfurt to Denver (9 1/2 hrs!!). Ugh.
|How they looked during most of the long flight.|
|She was a champ--slept only about 1 hr but did great walking around and making friends.|
At last, after 45 min waiting in the customs line with our eight checked bags and five carry ons, we got to see the wonderful family who endured our 3 1/2 year absence and welcomed us with excited and open arms.
|Sacked out at 6pm (2 am Germany time)|
