My mother recently flew back to Australia after a three week visit. It was wonderful to have her here and witness Thomas and Samuel getting to know her a little but more. And, let’s face it, it was nice having the break from cooking and a little help with the cleaning and childcare around here.
One of the sacrifices that come with living in another country is the distance from family and all that comes with it. Thankfully we are able to get together for an extended period of time every year or so and the boys have the chance to spend some quality time with their grandparents. It was a little disappointing that dad couldn’t make it this time, but we’ll see him early next year when we head back over for my brother’s wedding.
I have more photos to share from “Nan’s” visit, but I think I’ll start with goodbye.
