Wow, we can hardly believe how quickly the last 10-months have flown by. Thomas Frahsek came to live with us on August 16th of last year, and he had to return home last Saturday. (He got to extend an extra week to go to the 311 concert with the boys) He was alot of fun to have with our family. He was quite shy and quiet at first, but he warmed up to us and showed his quick wit and fun personality, We sure are going to miss him around here. A couple of days before he left he wanted to take us all to dinner. With all the crazy schedules in our family, this is all we could round up last Wednesday.
On Thomas's last Sunday with us he picked all his favorite things to eat. Cameron's famous BBQ Ribs, sour cream potatoes, Strawberry spanich salad and Ice cream cake. After dinner Thomas brought out this cool fortune kit. It is basically a spoon that you put a piece of metal in, then you hold over a candle until the metal melts, then you drop it in a bowl of ice water. Whatever shape the metal makes, there is a fortune that goes with it. It was soo fun. We all liked our fortunes too.
This is Thomas checking or trying to check in for his flight. The counter agent had to assist because of his passport. Good thing, his flight had been changed to 1-hour earlier and he was checking in late. They were able to get him on another airline leaving just 1-hour after his flight, the time we thought he was leaving at. So all was well. Thomas, Cameron and me getting our last picture and hugs together. We are soo glad we get to go visit him in just a few short weeks. I didn't break down and cry, but know I will when we leave Germany. He is just one of the family now, and he knows he better keep in touch.
