Home Sweet Home

This morning's conversation 

(well, actually this afternoon's conversation since I WOKE UP AT NOON!)

Mads (as he thumbs through his passport): I just realized that since I got this new passport last June, I have been to the US 3 times....
California in July, Seattle in October and this trip in April!

Kelli: Ok, that is A LOT in only NINE months!

(a few seconds later)

Kelli: Oh wait, I have been two times more than you because I went to Seattle again in November and then went to see Mom & Dad in February. So, FIVE TIMES in NINE MONTHS. Lord, no wonder my body is so tired.

Mads: Well our next trip to the US is not until Christmas this year so it will be "a while". 

Kelli: Honey, I think it is time to stay home for a little while. What do you think?

(Before Mads can answer, Albert and Emmitt respond.)

Albert & Emmitt (in unison): IT'S ABOUT TIME!!!!

I would love to travel to the states as much as you do, it is a luxury you have. I am lucky if I can get back once every year and that isn´t happening....
If you can keep visits to the states up like you are doing, living in Denmark won´t be the big hardship it is for many expats who can´t get back as often.
And I can see that Albert and Emmet are happy it will be "awhile"

I wish I had been back to the States that much in the last nine months!

You're all going back this Christmas too? We're SO excited to be back around Seattle with my family! My auntie and gran from Nebraska are even coming to join everyone.

...Christmas can't come fast enough!
