We are at the end of day one in the grand apartment hunt. We were gone from our little rental "hut" (let's talk more about that later) for 12 hours. I did indeed cry in a Spanish metro station tonight. So did all of my children. Thankfully, hubs held it together. Here's some selfie silliness during the long journey back.
And all in all, it was a great day of significant progress in narrowing down our area. A friend's sister showed me around town, and lavished our family with kindness, food, a bed to nap in, Internet to use, and toys to entertain. It will be in my memory for a long time as one of the most generous and timely acts of servanthood to us. I can't even begin to say how helpful this practical stranger, yet "sister," was today.
Guess who showed up in Spain with hands willing to help too?!? NanNan, who just finished a garden tour of France, hopped a plane and met us for the craziness of today. I really don't know what we would have done without her!
