My daughter (#2) on the left, has had a penpal in Germany for the last 3 years. Meike, in the middle, is in a nearby city for an exchange program living with the two on the right in the picture. They were going through our city today and we were able to meet for lunch and had a great time talking and laughing and sharing our lives. It was so good to finally meet her after all of this time. It is crazy to think about how she lives half a world away and how finally the girls are able to sit across the table from each other and actually talk.
