And it feels like the past two years were just a few days...amazing...
Obadiah was about the size of Mercy now when Kathi left 2 years ago. Everyone has gotten so big...and even though Kathi wore her pink shirt, no one else did--in fact, Mitch and I are the only ones who can still wear our shirts, everyone else grew out of theirs. :) I think we need to make more shirts.
Mercy gave Kathi smiles right away.
Kathi brought presents that are perfect for going to the pool (and showing off our German pride)!
Kathi had thought hard about each person and brought gifts for everyone. It was SO sweet. Here are pics of some of them:
Kathi had also written each person a note (even Mercy), and decorated them like the one Zeke is holding.
The story behind this: Kathi said that she didn't know what to get Mitch, because he likes everything. So she decided to get him something she knew he *wouldn't* like. She saw a classmate writing with this pen, that happens to look like a syringe filled with blood, and knew that had to be the gift for Mitch (who gets woosey at the sight of blood).
We are going to have some fun with these!
Real German Nutella! Does Kathi know me, or what?!
