Summertime in Kansas

07.06.2016 – 01.07.2016

Three weeks back in the mid-west means three weeks packed with seeing our wonderful friends and family. It is never easy to say goodbye but we are truly overwhelmed with love and support. Thank you thank you!

Sioux City, Iowa to celebrate and remember the life of Rachel’s Godfather

Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon them. May the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.

Loading up the last bit of our earthly belongings to fly to Zürich. A special thanks to Jeff and Cyndi (Parker’s parents) for graciously allowing us to store some special items (not going to Zürich) in their home.
