We had a BBQ together for a last get together.
Today is R's departure day for vacation. We walked the indoor track at the international school with the kids so they could get some wiggles out before the long plane ride. I have loved R as the dear friend she is before I even met her. I will miss her and her funny kids!
After we said goodbye Liam and I just looked at each other sadly. I want my kids to be excited for the new home, new friends and new things to do. Even still, it is important to honor wonderful time spent and express reverence and gratitude for dearly loved friends.
