The evening is quiet

Today Max moved to a new home in Athens. The kids were able to get him to go outside and play with them and they had a lot of fun picking on him while he was packing. He came with one suitcase and a violin and left with 2 suitcases, 3 bookbags, and 3 other bags full and a violin.

I hope all goes well there for him and the new family. As most could see from our blog entries we were overwhelmed with busy. We will see how the rest of our time this school year goes. The one kid who we thought would be totally upset, is fine. One is indifferent and we knew she would be and one is just totally heartbroken. She is crying and sobbing herself to sleep. You just say his name and she starts to cry. She will get over it, she always does when she attaches to someone and they leave. It will take her time to get over all of it. Her heart breaks so easy.

Here are a few pics taken before Max's new host family picked him up. (the date on the pics is incorrect, Kali has not set the date and time on the camera yet)

AWWWW, I can't imagine how hard it is for them. Will you guys be getting a new student too or do you have to wait till next year? I don't think I could do it, my heart would break too.
