Of course our time will be spent engaging in other various activities, such as hiking, playing games, and just "hanging out". We can hardly wait. The Things have a countdown on our white board in the school room, "How many more days until we go to America". Fantastic! There will also be appointments, dentist and eye doctor and hopefully seeing our favorite hair stylist, for Thing 1 that is. All the necessary business will be taken care of. I hope.
Yet, with all this anticipation I am feeling a tad "homesick" already. Being away for three weeks from our home here in Urla will be challenging. There are people here I will miss. There is FOOD here I will crave. There is the sea, beckoning to me everyday, that I will miss. Although it will be waiting for our return. All of it, and we will soak in each and every moment we have remaining in this place upon our return.
And for certain we will savor our time in the States. Everyday.
