It's that time of year again... when we have to say goodbye to our special friends. This year Backgammon Grrrl & her family are going back to the US. She will be greatly missed and I know C feels the same way about Lil' J. We've shared lots of good times!
This year though I'm going to try my best not to say any final goodbyes. When Lil' C & I said goodbye to Numeracy Grrrl and her family two years ago is was so incredibly sad. During their last playdate, Lil' C was so brave. He didn't cry while in Lil' J's presence but when we got into the car he completely broke down and it broke my heart. I just can't let him go through that again. So this year I'm going to try and keep it light. We all hate to say goodbye and would rather say, "... until next time" but it's easier said than done.
Yesterday, I met Strawberry Shortcake & Meditterean Man for coffee. It was great catching up with them. Meditterean Man & I both signed SS's Belgian flag with well wishes. What a great idea! I'm sure it will bring her lots of good memories when she looks at it years from now.
In the afternoon, I met up with my English conversation group for our last meeting of the season. I'm really lucky to have such a fun group! These ladies always make me laugh.
Today we all discussed our summer plans. The ladies that are not permanently moving are all planning to visit their home countries... it's funny when you talk to them and ask how long they'll be gone... "Oh, just for 6 or 8 weeks." lol!! Is that all! lol!
