Saying Farewell

This last week went so fast for Line.
School was out, but she was busy packing and spending time with her friends.
This morning we took the last two boxes to the USPS.

High School students have a busy schedule...
but I wanted to gather as many as possible in our home, so Line could say goodbye.

The lunch hour was a perfect time...and Walking Tacos was the perfect menu item.
And Line loves cupcakes.
She is the reason I bought my cupcake tree!
Some of the girls came from agility training,
from the dance studio,
and from summer work orientation.
But they all enjoyed the frozen lemonade,
good conversation,
and the warm sunshine.
The girls relaxed... just one more time... in our living room...
But, before we knew it...we were at the airport.
Line waited till the last possible minute to go through security.
Good Bye, Line...So long for now...

A fond farewell. I've enjoyed your posts about Line and the girls and learning about her culture. She is a beautiful gal and she'll come back someday a beautiful woman. I know you and your family feel fortunate to have been a part of her life and she yours. A wonderful addition to your memories.

Oh, this makes me so sad.
I am sure you will all miss her smiling face.
What wonderful memories she will have for a lifetime though.
Take care, Suz

Wow, I can't believe how fast that year went. Things will be different at your house now. I am sure you will miss her.

Are your girls moving back in for the summer?

Take care.
