*Day 30 of 31 days of Traveling & Living Overseas with Kids
**All stories are true.
It happens to us all, we get homesick for the greener grass of another country.
Sometimes we don’t remember the hardships back in America,
or we are don’t care and just want to feel normal again.
When my kids hit the homesickness bug,
we try to build them up through a few ways.
We listen to familiar music that we learned in the States,
Read books we brought over,
look at pictures and home videos taken in the States,
and we remind each other of memories we had.
Finally the kids love to hear their birth stories and
that seems to soothe them as they realize they are a part of a family
and they are loved!
A few books I would recommend for those traveling, moving or living overseas
