This is our final week in Romania. It is a bit more than vacation for us because it is also (for my husband) visiting friends and family that we haven't seen in Seven years....two of those people being my husband's Mother and Sister! Also, they have not seen our son...their grandson and nephew. My father-in-law has came to the states to visit and stay with us three different times for 3 to 6 months at a time. So what I am trying to say is that it will be a bit of a sad departure; however, we have told everyone and mean it (God willing): we will return every other year from now on for a visit. It is a lot better than 7 years from now. Some of the young kids I met seven years ago are now teenagers or all grown up. Amazing! It's like a time warp or something because many things look and feel the same and then you see someone and they have changed or have gotten older than you remember.
I was worried about our son not wanting to go back home but he showed a few signs that home will be okay yesterday and today. He asked for Macaroni and Cheese and Chocolate Milk. :-) Uhhh..not here I say. :-) He loves his relatives here. We will keep up, as we have over the past seven years, with them all on Skype! If you have long distance relatives...download skype (it's free as long as the other person has skype) and you can video conference. Fantastic service!
