Today I took Jessica and Nicole to the Frankfurt Airport. We picked up friends returning from a trip to America. It was to be a 2 hour deal...and turned out to take 4 hours instead. The flight was delayed. Poor Juergen stayed home from work watch the kids. I didn't get back until nearly 1:30pm. I'm glad he was able to work from home. Thank God for flexible jobs! At the airport we watched a crazy group of students that were waiting for a friend. The friends name was Max. They had banners! And every time a person would walk out of customs you would hear this crazy group scream. It looked like Max had been away for a year. we got to see him come out of the customs to the waiting arms of his parents and grandparents and friends. Sweet!
Thomas had a friend from school over to play. He is sleeping over at the kids house tonight. Thomas has trouble making friends, so we are pretty glad for him! We keep praying he will really begin to feel connected in his class. Everyone needs a group of crazy friends that would be willing to hold up banners at the airport. We all need to feel like we belong someplace.
