We want to take this blog to thank everyone in Wisconsin. We were so blessed to be able to visit for three weeks. We were also happy to bring the warm weather with us! It definitely made the adjustment from 95°+ so much easier. It was so funny watching everyone sweat when it was above 70° and embarrassing for us to wear sweatshirts when it was below 70°. Alright we also wore our winter stocking hats as well. Yep we are those people that we always made fun of. I can say that we finally adjusted to the cooler weather by the time we flew back.
We first want to thank FMC for letting us use the vehicle for our time in the states. You made our travels possible!
|Surprise we are here!!!|
Thank you Olivia for welcoming us into your home at 5:00am. The look on your face when you saw us standing outside your door as you were headed out for your run was priceless. Thank you for the wonderful coffee and the delicious egg sandwich. Oh and for letting us warm ourselves by your stove. It really helped!!!
|We want to thank all of our friend for the time you made|
for us. For welcoming us when we popped in. For all
of your prayers and well wishes. We were so lucky
to see all of you!!!
