Neil’s parents finally got to come visit us! We loved being able to show them our neighborhood and daily life here, taking them to the markets and our favorite shops. We spent many days doing day-in and day-out life going to school, washing laundry and hanging it out to dry, cooking together, and playing games. We even got to take a few day trips into the city center looking at the major sites, drive into Tuscany, and spend a day picnicking at the beach. It was also really special for them to have a little birthday celebration at home together for Arthur.
It was so special for us—and definitely for the kids! They loved showing grandma and grandpa their school and making new memories together. It’s the little moments we share and take in that really last and that we reflect upon now with the expanse of the ocean between us. We are sooo thankful we got to spend this special time together!
