Welcome to Holland!


When we arrived the owner of the home we are renting from gave a small wrapped gift to each kid. They were elated and it meant the world to us and them! Royce’s new boss and family also came to welcome our family. It is comforting to know they live close by. Most people are on holiday the month of August, so Royce doesn’t have to rush off to work just yet. He gets to help us get adjusted before school begins on the 12th. It is customary for us to introduce and greet our neighbors. We have got to do this tomorrow. I always get so nervous before I spit out the little Dutch I know, but I find the more I do, the easier those words come rolling off my tongue. I find myself practicing with the kids in the park and many times they either look at me funny, respond back in Dutch, or correct me.
