Emily said this was the first year she was able to say goodbye to her girls on the first day of school without crying……
They are beginning second and third grades and both are very happy about the teachers they will have.
Here they are with their Dad at the end of the drive, waiting for the bus.
Meanwhile, Alice and her family have left their all too short visit to Budapest. First they had the fun of a night train to Munich, that’s 424.8 miles.
And then they spent some time with cousins Christof and Sabrina and their twins in Heidenheim.
Sabrina has a good sense of humor, doesn’t she!
And then after the short stay in Heidenheim, on to Ravensburg (actually mostly Hinzestobl, a small settlement above Ravensburg) with Alice’s Aunt Christa and Uncle Joshi. They are wonderful hosts and especially good at playing games with their guests. Ursula and Christian’s wedding will be first at the registry and then at a church in Ravensburg. And then Alice and her family will come home on Saturday. How we have missed them. But how happy we all are that they had this wonderful opportunity to travel and spend special time with family.
Joshi took them to visit the toy factory in Ravensburg. What fun!
