After nearly 4 weeks apart, the girls and I took the train to meet Malin and his family on the Oregon coast. We had a great time walking the beach, looking at tide pools, playing games and opening some gifts. The following week we returned to my parent's house and celebrated Christmas.
For now we have decided it's best for Malin to continue working in Oregon and Amelia, Meredith and I continue in Oak Harbor while I study. The girls are doing well in school here, but miss Daddy. Hope you all had a blessed Christmas.
