1. Maximilian’s first grade year is coming to an end and he came home upset that he didn’t get to say good bye to a friend who moved away. A few refugee children were in his class and one in particular became a really good friend of his. We found out that he moved to Dortmund but besides that, there is no way for us to reach him. As sad as Max is, I can’t imagine what it was like for his little boy to not only leave Syria but then, have to leave the school where he met lots of friends and became a part of the community here in Mainz.
2. My baby can’t talk yet but he runs around the house singing the tune of the European Cup theme song.
3. Sebastian goes to Chicago for the plan review on Saturday and we were talking about all the great things he could do and see while there and kid-less. A run on the lakefront, a chicken sandwich at Chick-fil-a, dinner at Wildfire, a Cubs game, etc. I miss Chicago but the days are glorious here in Mainz now that it is summer.
