One of the things that I really don't like is saying goodbye. I think that am a pretty flexible person and can deal with a lot of changes, but it is still not easy. And this year we will be saying goodbye to one Finnish family (Miika and Mirjam: right below) and saying hello to another: Rami and Kata Maria who are here right now to check us out (left below). The funny part is both families have 4 girls, so now everyone will think that all Finns have lots of girls!
The Kurkkios have been here for 5 years, and working with our team for over 3, and it will be quite hard to see them go. But we look forward to working with our new teammates, and getting to know them! The Kurkkios are leaving in June and the new family will arrive in August along with a new teacher for their kids to replace Lea (below) who has been faithfully teaching the Kurkkio girls for 3 years.
