Empty Office

After all the chaos on moving day we went back to the office of Saturday to pick up a few things out of the kitchen.  This is the training room.

Another Selfie of Elder Ames. I wanted to get a picture of all the returning missionaries but it was so crazy at the office that I forgot.  Elder Woltjen, Elder Ames, Elder and Sister Kleyn all left of the same flight to Salt Lake.  Elder Strikwerda , Elder Holt and Sister Bradleys parents and familys came and picked them up.

This was also moving day.  As you can see alot of our furniture is gone.

The movers are packing up as our missionaries are waiting for their families to pick them up.

It is crazy around here today.

Panorama Mesdag Museum

We had a Senior Outing and went to Den Haag to the Panorama Mesdag Museum.  This is the largest painting of the Netherlands.  It is 120 x 14 meters.  It is of the highest dune in Scheveningen in 1881.  Vincent Van Gogh was among the guests when it opened on 1 August 1881 who complained that the canvas had but one fault, that it was faultless.

In front of the painting they have sand and chairs and other things that make it look as if you are right there.
