All good things must come to an end... I'm behind on blogging pictures, so hope to catch up on our adventures of the past week soon. But, posting these now, as it was the day to say goodbye to Danielle and Alex. We will miss them!
I'll miss more than my dishes amazingly being done every meal and the children having extra playmates when things got crazy. I'll miss the way they jumped in to help, whether it be carrying bags and children or receiving my grocery orders while I played outside with Hadassah. But most of all I'll miss the friends and sister/brother they've become (since they're only 9-11 years younger, they feel more like a sibling than a niece and nephew!).
It's pretty cool how God works. One of the hardest things in moving overseas was how I knew I'd miss out on many things with family. But then there have been opportunities like this - 6 weeks with this part of my family! - something that would not have happened were we stateside. I am so thankful for my brother and sister-in-law for giving us such a gift this summer!
Thank you again, Danielle and Alex! The house seems quieter now. It will be good to be just our little family again, but you will definitely be missed. These memories we've made will last a lifetime! And it will always be fun to be just a little closer to you both as a result of weeks together and tons of late night games of The Golden Ages. :)
