Holland is happy but Singapore is sad... we will miss you Andre, Heidi and Sophie!

Last Friday we said goodbye to our sweet friends Andre, Heidi and Sophie. They lived in our condo for 6 months and we just had so much fun with them... part of living as an expat is that you have to say "Good-bye" way to often... Holland is happy to have them back home but Singapore will never be the same... we miss you already.
Pierce just could not get enough of Sophie's dad Andre... called him papa bc that is what Sophie called him...

Although we were sad and these pics were the last time that we got to swim with them... I managed to get a CHEESE out of Pierce.

My sweet friend Heidi..... thank you for all the times you made me smile and laugh.

And who could ever get enough of that sweet face... Sophie has such a gentle heart and so much fun to be around... she is 1.5 going on 5... so cute.

After swimming we joined our friends Martin and Jane and their kids at the condo for pizza... we are all dried off now and having one last night as friends in Singapore. Here is a pic of Sophie and August.

Like I said Pierce could not get enough of Andre... here they are putting puzzles together.

The 3 girls... these are my buddies from the condo... I have taught each of these girls how to do the full body hug... when we first meet... Jane would shake my hand and Heidi would give me 3 kisses on the cheek... I had to show them the good old fashioned hug from America.... when Heidi left she gave me a big long hug... thanks Heidi... I will come and see you in Holland for sure...

All the kids just love Sophie... here is Alberta getting some love.

While we were eating the girls (daughters) got up on the table and had a concert imitating a rock star.... so funny.

Blake even got some good bye hugs and kisses from Sophie.

We love you and you will miss your face around here... our condo will not be the same without "Y'ALL".
Sophie singing "Twinkle Twinkle little Star" in her second language English... she will be missed.
"Dag" - (Danish for Bye)!

What a sweet way to say good bye; I'm sure they will be missed! God's blessings in Holland!

That must be hard! Think how many friends you have/will have all around the globe!

I could not think of a more perfect person to teach about American Hugs, seeing as how you are the gradmaster best hugger ever!
