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.
My last teaching of the week was on Art Therapy. We did some hands on work, which was really fun. A quote I enjoyed from our day of teaching:
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.
Two days before we left for home, Shailo fell and got his first black eye!Here is a poor lighting photo of his eye. It got worse each day and I felt like momma of the year! Haha
Packing for home was an experience! Oh.mah.word!
Shailo back in Colorado… at 4 am due to jet lag. But the kiddo slept 12 hours straight, so I can’t really complain!
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!
