The Holtgrewe's got some unexpected orders and ended up having to leave Hawaii way earlier than expected... We decided to be in denial about it for a while but as it got closer we knew we had to get our last hikes, beach days, game nights, and just hanging out in while we could... This day we went to Haleiwa and just hung out at the tide pools followed by some shave ice at Motsomotos! Then just like that it was time for them to head back to the mainland. It was not exactly an easy see you later... On the bright side I have seen how it works when we are stationed far apart and I have no doubt there will be plenty of McGrewe visits. The kids are older than when we left Germany and understand so much more which is good and bad... I don't know who was the most teary eyed that night... We love you Holtgrewe's and we will see you soon!!!!

|Cristine caught this pic of my kids running after them when they drove off to the airport. Totally got a lump in my throat! Love our families special bond!|
