Auf Wiedersehen!

I have been wanting to write something about us leaving Germany for the past couple of days...but I don't know where to begin.
I have such mixed emotions about leaving this country we now call home. It has been kind of a roller coaster the last few weeks, but even moreso the last couple of days. And I am so sad to say we are moving back to the states TOMORROW!
Basketball has actually meant a lot in Matt and I's life. Obviously, it paid for our schooling, it is the reason that we were able to meet eachother, it is the reason we were able to come to this beautiful country....and now it is the reason we are leaving...
There are Way too many good-byes to be said in 3 days-- but we are trying!! We are SO grateful for this amazing opportunity that we wouldn't trade for anything in the world. Thanks to everyone who made us feel that Germany was our home and made us feel like family. We will never forget you!!

More to come...much more to come!

Ich habe Euch zwar nie persönlich kennenlernen dürfen, aber hier im Blog viel von Euren Erlebnissen in Deutschland gelesen. Aus diesem Grund kommt es mir nun auch so vor, als ob gute Freunde uns verlassen. Auch Eure Blogs über meine Heimat und das Leben als Basketball-Profi werden mir fehlen.

Ich wünsche Euch alles erdenklich Gute auf Eurem weiteren Weg und zuerst einmal eine gute Heimreise! Ich hoffe Matt wird weiterhin seiner Leidenschaft Basketball nachgehen und den Werdegang des MBC verfolgen. Weiterhin hoffe ich, dass es auch Euer Wunsch war Deutschland zu verlassen und Ihr nicht dem gnadenlosen Aussonderungsverfahren im Profisport zum Opfer gefallen seid. Das hätte Matt aufgrund seiner profihaften und teamorientierten Einstellung nicht verdient gehabt.

I hope you understand what i tryed to say. It was easier for me to express in german. Take care of you guys an good luck! I will follow your way here!

I loved reading this blog (too) and I feel a little bit sad, that you left Weißenfels so early. I wish you all the best.
