unwind after the first week of school.
Would we make friends? How homesick would we get? What were Jeff and I going to do all day while the kids were in school? We were a family of five changing things up for awhile and we stuck together, trying to figure it all out as we went along.
This time, I'm on my own with the kids (Jeff is coming at the end of September) and there is already a level of comfort and security. As the train carried us into the Berner Oberland, the landscape resonated and the familiar silhouette of the mountains brought a smiles to our travel-weary faces. It felt like we were "home".
We are not here forever, not even for a few more years. Yet, it feels like home because this is where we have chosen to spend our days and nights. We have become a part of this community, at least for now and what matters most, is that we are here together.
