Summertime Update

We are still in Denmark and loving it! Time is flying by in strange surreal spurts and I am battling an urge to mourn our departure already. I tell myself that most people only go away for the amount of time we still have left here, but alas, my heart isn't easily fooled by logic...I still hate leaving my family so far away! It's funny, but every time we get here I think, I must have been off my rocker to leave my home and invade someone else's for the massive amount of time we stay for. And then as our departure time approaches, I wonder why we didn't stay longer. There are still so many things I want to do, the kids are enjoying life here and are finally more comfortable in Danish, it's such a joy to see my family and my children interact, and we've only gained a combined 50 pounds by being here -- we're clearly not ready to leave! (It's also something like 9000 degrees back home which doesn't exactly make me want to jump for joy. Unless I could bottle that and save it for January...Hmmm, something to consider.)
In any case, pictures and such will follow when I return home - if anyone who isn't here with me is even still reading this . :) Otherwise I assume blogging for journal keeping purposes is still fully acceptable.
