Time to Head South

TODAY IS OUR last day in Strasbourg. This will be brief -- with more later.

We have had another excellent summer in a new part of France. The Alsace region is absolutely wonderful with a little bit of everything to offer. We've done out best to take advantage of our time here while at the same time spending a lot of 'down' time at the house. Of course, having such a nice house for nearly two months has helped. Leif and Keira -- the owners -- spent nearly two months traveling around Africa with their two children. Last night we got to hear all about their adventures over a very nice dinner (I talk about that in the next post) and when they get their blog up and running I'll be sure to link to it. Some of their stories are amazing. But it was because they were going to be away that they decided to rent out their home while they were gone and we were lucky enough to find it on the internet. We're thankful we found a place that was so great for the kids -- and us. We're also happy that we got so spend a lot of time with Kerri's parents during their visit. On top of that we were able to catch-up with friends in Frankfurt and (kind of) Copenhagen. All this can be found in the July/August posts if you keep scrolling down (I'm sure you will!).

A big THANK YOU to everyone who played a part in our adventures this summer. It was a summer we'll remember for a long, long time. Now it's time to head back South!
