journeys

the long awaited day is here (and officially ends in 45 minutes).  

william and i played hooky from our respective institutions of play and learning to take a bus and a train to wait for an airplane from chicago.  

a little journey all in itself... waiting and watching











at the airport we shared a hotdog, read from 'ramona the pest,' and looked for familiar faces.  and they arrived! william and i shared a hot chocolate while we waited for a direct train back home.  (i felt 98% confident i could get us back by way of a stop at copenhagen's central station, but the wait allowed for some caffeine for the travelers (one of whom was weary) and gave us that additional 2% guarantee we'd make it to our destination.)  

good pals... together again... 


familiar faces...


and tonight as we sat reading to william before bed, a scene so familiar from visits past, and this house now so familiar to me... it seemed possible to forget it was all happening in denmark.
