Saying Goodbye

The night before we left
a few of our neighbors had us for dinner.
I can't express how thankful we are to have had
the neighbors we did for the past 4 years.

That night after dinner,
the adults stayed back and 
9 of the neighborhood kids
ages 19 down to 3
piled in a car and drove 
to FarFars for ice cream.

The next day
as we drove away ..
on to our new life in France,
our street was lined with mini-French flags.

And they were there
waving goodbye.

We miss you already!
