We flew out the next morning. Three kids came with me. Two kids waited and flew with Campbell Clansman later in the week. We got to fly our first leg with a set of school grandparents who had come to visit their family. It was so much fun to have a buddy to fly to Germany with!
In the Germany airport, we found some decent reclining seats.
The backpacks chock full of coloring books and markers came out.
Big Ben was my traveling buddy, while Sweet Cheeks sat with Firstborn. My kids are super at travelling! I appreciate so much their flexibility to fly 24 hours, even when they are tired.
We were very tired, but made it safely home to family. There's nothing like that first hug and the hope of a whole summer ahead!
