Almost three weeks ago, we put our youngest on an airplane for the grandest adventure of her life. She met up with her Grandpa and cousin and a team of about a dozen for this much-anticipated trip / rite of passage in our family. You can find a few more details and some of the backstory on the Russia trips here and here.
Today she returns home and we couldn’t be more excited. Things have been a little quiet around here, but we’ve thoroughly enjoyed seeing the other side of the world through her eyes. Here are a few of the highlights …
Prague, Czech Republic
They spent much of their first week taking in all that is Prague, Czech Republic, seeing some of the most renowned landmarks.
And lots of old Architecture …
From Russia with love
And then they headed to Russia to do a bit of sightseeing in Moscow and teaching English in a village.
Making new friends all along the way
Apparently for $4 you can get your picture made AND they will call you the Queen. Not a bad deal!
The pictures, snap chats and videos are coming to a close for this chapter. But they will be quickly followed by layers upon layers of stories that will spill out over the next few days and weeks. Those are always some of my favorites -seeing the world through the eyes of our kids and hearing about new friendships. Somehow in their telling of the stories, we feel like we too have been part of their grand adventure.
Besides, it’s been a bit too quiet around her without her fun personality bouncing around.
What adventures have you been able to enjoy this summer?
