It All Started As…

A Dream

Then we had some funny pictures taken

On August 31, 2009, when Elijah was 6, Brady was 4, and Jesse and Matty were 9 months old, we said good-bye to our family and friends in Canada and began a 3-part journey: Edmonton to Minneapolis, Minneapolis to Amsterdam, and Amsterdam to Aberdeen! It was not easy. At all.

(These pictures are deceptive as they were taken on our first flight, when everyone was still in good spirits and sleep was not lacking.)

Finally we saw it! Scotland!

Next thing we knew, we were walking on new streets in our new city.

And it didn’t take long for Aberdeen to steal our hearts.

  1. I think of England that way to. I loved it right away and would love to go back. They are just such beautiful countries with such rich history and stories. We are missing out on SO much of that here.

  2. Oh my! I can’t imagine travelling *that* far with four kids. I was tired and grumpy enough just travelling on my own long distances. Phenomenal effort!

    • It was tougher than we expected! I’m just so glad that on our return journey the twins will be older and we only have one layover.
