The last day

What an amazing last day in Switzerland. Lots of tears... overwhelmed by everyone's kindness... lending us a car, hosting and feeding us, coming to clean our place. Then on top of it, the pretty snow-topped Alps just sitting there. Just looking at us, as if to say, nanny-nanny-boo-boo, we're staying here and you're not. We're already missing the 4 Swiss C's: Castles, Cows, Chocolate, and Cheese. Just missing it all. We didn't really have time to think about it during the final prep days --  awake til 3am scrubbing floors and packing suitcases: 25 total came home, in 2 separate groups (half with Sterling and Kas, and half with us). Pretty unreal.  Here's Kenny saying goodbye to our mailbox.

Our cute street: Chemin du Boiron 2, 1263 Crassier

As we were driving away from our beloved little neighborhood, Kenny's class was out for recess, so we stopped and he went over to the fence, as all his cute little friends starting call out "Kenny! Kenny!" to him... it was pretty touching to see him standing there amidst all of them saying goodbye, chitter-chattering in French.  I'll miss all their cute French-speaking Swiss friends so much.

Last pizza meal at the Croix Verte in Nyon

Adorable Susan and Laura Johnson hosted us on our last night ~ they tried to get Kenny
to sleep in the basket, but he just wouldn't. 8-)

Bidding au revoir to Crystal and Kris at the airport -- we miss you all!
