Since we are going to Africa for two weeks, Raelee to Grandma and Grandpa ‘s, today was her last day of school. We took a cake with a picture of zebras and a giraffe at a watering hole. The kids loved it. She gave each one a treat bag that she had put together with candy and little animals and a magnetic picture of her. All of them kept telling her they were going to miss her so much and one even told me we should not move there!
After everyone had cake, each child took a picture with her. It was so sweet! Then they circled around her and with Mrs. Humphrey and Mrs. Hillegas prayed. Each child was praying out loud. It was very moving to hear them praying for their friend. With tears and hugs we said goodbye. I hate that she has to leave such a loving environment, but I know God has bigger plans for us.
Now, to just make it through the next two days till we leave!
