We said a sad goodbye to Rasmus, Jytte, Nikoline and Josefine in the wee hours of Friday morning. Actually, Grace said goodbye before she went to bed Thursday night. And when I picked her up at school on Friday she told me, "It is OK that Josefine and Nikoline had to go home. But I'm ready for them to come back now." I think that about sums it up - we loved having them here and will surely miss them a lot in the coming months until we see them again. We hope they had as much fun on their vacation as we did. It is certainly the hardest part of this expat life - being away from those we love so much. We hope they had a smooth and easy journey back to Denmark. Their luggage going home was full of African trinkets, and memories that none of us will forget.
