10 minutes late to be 2 hours early

We were off to Beijing for three days.

No big deal.

Until we woke up to… SNOW.

Oh my word.

It’s already Monday, January 3rd.

I have no clue where the time is going.

This morning, Schäfer woke up & walked around the house saying “Papa? Papa?”

Selah was still asleep so I got up with Schäfer and we made biscuits together. It felt just like “old times”.
