One of the things we did daily was take the kids to the gym as that is a huge part of our day. We did cut them some slack as we only went for 8 a.m. whereas we normally go for 7 a.m. Due to the holidays, many of our regular friends were missing but they got to meet some and get a feel for what we are doing there. They might have had a few sore muscles :)

Since my birthday was right around the corner, still is, they decided to celebrate with a nice lunch.
|A special treat was the Mariachi who sang the birthday song.|
So many memories were made in those three short weeks. I can not thank God enough for that gift. Am I sad they are gone - of course - but as Chris likes to remind me - we chose to leave! The world seems smaller with technology and so we continue to connect over the miles. I would have never imagined that we would all be together over Christmas, so I am thankful. God is Good - always!
