Well, off to another country. I'm seriously having a hard time believing that I’m just moving from country to country. I’ve been looking forward to this for so long that it’s hard to believe that it is actually here.
I got up to say goodbye to Mom, Dad, and Kayla this …
I'm here! My first week will be down after tomorrow and I've almost conquered my jet lag.
The kids are blowing my mind. Such maturity and brilliance. Talking to an eight-year-old is like hanging out with a fourteen-year-old.
1. A little boy (3rd grade) was so excited telling me about his bio chemistry unit in school.
2. A little girl made her own ruler to measure out objects in her drawing and shared how she's ...

... train back so we looked through the stores which were there, got more chocolate and then rested in the lounge once we were allowed through. It was a relaxing ride back to London and with time difference we arrived just before 9pm which was good since we had work the following day.
Brussels was really cool. It was charming and quaint and for such a big city it didn’t feel anything like one. I would definitely go back!
Until next time,
Love Toni ...
