Three Weeks


I have just spent the most incredible three weeks with these two little girls! Both speak English and German (yes, even Maya who is only 2). We baked chocolate chip cookies, colored pictures, played Candy Land, went for walks, picked roses and played with every toy I have. So many memories were made and they will have to last for another year.

…and every morning, wind, rain or shine, Maya walked Chelsea with Milkshake with me.

I hated to say goodbye.   Seeing them is such pure joy and saying goodbye is so painful.   I feel like this every time they come here, or I go to visit and it takes me a few days to recover…

Now it’s back to work and I have lots to tell you!

I recall when my son/family lived 1,000 miles away and it seemed I was always hopping on a plane….at least they were in the states. I’m very happy for your visit, I’ve actually thought of you several times during the Easter season, knowing you were enjoying your family’s visit. I know parting is sad, but you have the lovely memories until next time. {Hug}ReplyCancel

  • Lea Kagel - Sooo sweet and precious, Anne. They are such pretty little girls and I bet it was such fun playing and baking with them. I am so blessed to have my four little granddaughters live close by. I can’t imagine having to part with them for so long. I am teaching my 10yr old to quilt. She saved money dog-sitting and bought her own sewing machine!

    Much love to you, dearest friend and thanks for sharing such adorable photos and video.
