Yesterday was Emili’s last day to play with her best friend Helene; Helene and her family are moving back to France. The girl friends from their school class spent a poingant day with Helene at the beach.
The girls were very busy building sand castles and laughing and splashing one another!
We found jelly fish washed up on the beach; these are very small compared to previous years.
As a going away present for Helene and Emili, I needle felted two dolls, one for each girl. Emili the girl received Helene the doll and Helene the girl received Emili the doll.
Helene and Emili have been in school together since the first grade; I am still friends with my best friend from the first grade!
We all tried to be brave and not cry, but Emili and Helene’s last parting hug broke me. We now have a great reason to travel to France!
