En uge er ikke nok... A week is not enough

Min lille pige er vokset op ..... My little girl has grown up.....

Jeg indså fuldstændigt dette det vi bragte hende til Billund Lufthavn i morges, og jeg spurte hvis hun havde spørgsmål om hendes tur eller Schiphol Lufthavn---og hun rullede sine øjne, smilede og sagde "Mor, jeg ved hvordan at jeg skal gøre dette!"

I realized this completely as we were about to leave her at the security counter at the Billund Airport. I asked her if he she had any questions about the trip or Schiphol Airport--and she rolled her eyes, grinned and said, "Mom, I know how to do this!"

After 13 years in the American public schools, she is finished with school on
May 30, 2009 and is ready to start her university classes in June.

Vi havde en FORBLØFFENDE tid med Jess og jeg er glad for muligheden for at opleve min første dansk jul med hende! Jeg er også så taknemmelig for at have en familie her i Danmark som elsker min datter lige så meget som min egen familie. En uge var ikke nok... nå, næste opgave.... planlægge Jess´s tur i marts til Danmark!

We had an AMAZING time with Jess and I am so happy to have had the opportunity to experience my first Danish Christmas with her! Also, I am so thankful to have a family in Denmark who loves my daughter in the same way that my own family does! One week was not enough, so next step.....plan Jess´ trip in March to Denmark!

Jess og hendes "bonus far" som han kaldes hans selv....meget bedre end "step far"! :o)
Jess and her "bonus dad" as he calls himself..much better than stepdad! :o)

Albert elsker at have en teenager i huset igen!

Albert loves having a teenager around again!

Hun er klar til en aften ud i Herning!
She´s ready for a night out in Herning!







Jess´s yndlingmad i Danmark er krebs fra Nordhavet... og Mads vil være sikker på at hun får det hver gang hun kommer!

Jess´ fave food in Denmark is crabs from the North Sea... and Mads makes sure that we have them every time she comes!


Min veninde, Marta, træffer endelig Jess!
My friend Marta finally gets to meet Jess!

I toget til Århus, for vores sidste dag sammen. Pige-dag er altid den bedste!
On the train to Århus for our last day together. Girls´day is always the best!

Alle talte til Jess om hvor godt det danske universitet er... i håb om at hun vil bestemme sig til at komme til Danmark for at gå på universitet (gratis, selvfølgelig!!). Faktisk, Mads´s mor fortalte Jess om "den perfekte plan" hun har lavet....Jess kan gå til hendes universitet klasser i Århus under ugen, og kommer tilbage i toget til Herning hver weekend! :o) Jess elsker at alle ønsker for hun at flytte til Danmark, men lige nu, hendes planer er at gå på universitet i Texas....

Everyone talked to Jess about how great the Danish universities are.... in hopes that she might decide to attend college in Denmark (for free!!). In fact, Mads´ mom told Jess about the plan she had made ....Jess could go to school in Århus during the week and then take the train back home to Herning every weekend! :o) Jess loves that everyone wants her to move to Denmark, but as of now, her plan is to attend college in Texas....

Oh - only a week.. the time must have flown by!

Maybe she'll come over to Denmark for an exchange year or something?

I'm glad that you're so proud of her and all the Nørgaards & friends were able to enjoy her recent visit to DK. :-)

WOW! Kelli, she is so beautiful! Looks just like you! Aren't you just a little bit nervous having her attend university so far away?

Too bad she was only there for a week. She really should go to University in Denmark. What will she be studying?

Alex said...

I would kill to transfer to a Danish college...but I my Danish is not good enough. Still, maybe I will manage a semester there studying language, if I can get that scholarship I'm workin' on!
