Home or Away: Multicultural Kid Blogs’ Instagram Challenge

During the week of May 16-22, Multicultural Kid Blogs hosted the #MeetTheMKBBlogger Instagram challenge.  It was a fun challenge to get to know our members better by participating with the prompts for each day.  There were over 220 participating posts for the challenge. The prompt “home or away” was by far the most meaningful one.

On the second day of the challenge, the prompt “home or away” evoked in many of our members beautiful sentiments on what was home or away for them.  Each picture shared on Instagram has a heartwarming story, an anecdote or a message from their hearts. Take a minute to read each one of them, and please share with us in the comments below what is home or away for you.

Day 2: “Home or Away”. This is a difficult one. There is a saying “home is where the heart is”. But where is my heart? My family is 7.763 km away. That is far. I even missed Maximan’s end of year performance. Why? Microman and I are spending a couple of days in my hometown to take care of some paperwork and it is so nice to see loved ones while being here on this side of the planet. Having lifes on two sides of the planet (USA/Europe) is tough and sometimes I feel torn. When I lived in Italy one of my friends mentioned that it is nice to make new friends but traveling also means saying goodbye over and over. Luckily our goodbyes are not forever and with the new technology our loved ones can be as close as they (we) want to be. Although, being able to give eachother a hug irl is still pretty awesome. #MeetTheMKBBlogger #mkbkids #mmmmicroman #didIlayonyoursofa #worldschoolers #Ididmisstheendofyearperformancetoday
