July 6th-7th, 2013
I had a whirlwind of goodbyes to attend to this weekend.
Afterwards, I made a quick stop at Addy and Ryan’s homestead to say farewell to their family. Then it was back to my homestead where my host sisters greeted me who all came home to through me a farewell party. We cooked a great meal and took tons of fun family photos and celebrated being together one last time. The party lasted into Sunday with another meal, gift exchanges, more photos, and a very chaotic raiding of the things I am getting rid of before I leave. It felt like Christmas. But then sadly we had to eventually say our goodbyes to each other too. Thankfully all my host sisters have whatsapp so we will be able to keep in touch easily.It was a very busy, emotional 24 hours. It’s weird to say goodbye after two years and not know if you will ever be able to say hello again. I am so thankful to have these people in my life, and they will stay with me forever.
