While Doug and Rachel were at home getting their stuff packed and loaded for Germany, my mom had their kids for a few days. She brought them over Wednesday to get out and have some fun. They came over and all the kids played hard for well over 3 hours. Swimming, jumping on the tramp, swinging, you name it. They even at their lunch on the picnic table in the backyard. I know my children slept well that night!
It's so strange to think Doug and Rachel and crew will be gone 3-5 years. By the time they get back, the children will have grown and changed so much! We are definitely going to go visit while they're over there. Hopefully the situation with the airlines and gasoline won't get any worse! We'll be flying 6 people over there!!
