Amsterdam {Week 12}

Our last week in Amsterdam was bittersweet. We were excited at the idea of going home for the Holidays, yet sad to leave behind our newfound friends and a beautiful city. Because tickets were cheaper to leave mid-week, we flew out Thursday before the majority of my class. Tearful goodbyes were said during this week.

When a person is very ill (cancer or depression, etc) it is important to show them the part in them get that is still healthy and alive.

Packing for home was an experience! Oh.mah.word!1524653_10151880412141989_1146667633_n

Shailo back in Colorado… at 4 am due to jet lag. But the kiddo slept 12 hours straight, so I can’t really complain!1487347_10151883486556989_300717967_n

The boys in a bath, finally! We didn’t have on in Amsterdam so they wanted one every night since we’ve been back!

Amsterdam friends, we miss you! We are so thankful for our time there and for the chance to meet such amazing people. Perhaps someday we’ll visit again!
