We had a lovely holiday but 20 days of traveling around Europe with two kids is a lot of work and there is nothing like your comfy bed and the kids toys and your house! What is crazy is that we are only here for 19 more days and then we are off again for our trip back to the States. We have so much travel planned for this year that it is just going to be a whirlwind of packing, traveling, unpacking and repeat.
Since I don't have that much time before we head off again I am going to try and be diligent and blog about our trip but it might take some time. We did manage to visit three different countries, eight different cities and took around 1000 pictures! I feel so incredibly blessed to take a vacation like this and see as much as we did and for John to have as much time off as he did (and he still has time off for a trip in October and December)! Living overseas can be tough, frustrating and overwhelming but this is a sweet reward for the time here.
Stay tuned for our crazy adventure through Italy, Greece and Turkey!

We had just finished reading Acts 17 and seeing the Acropolis behind us and seeing what Paul saw when he taught was amazing....
"Now what you worship as something unknown I am going to proclaim to you. The God who made the world and everything in it is the Lord of heaven and earth and does not live in temples built by hands." Acts 17:24
