Waterproof mascara

What a wonderful evening! We were told to expect a babysitter (thank you, Amy!) and a chauffeur at 7:30pm. And our friends in the church treated us to a scrumptious meal in Paul and Rachel's lovely garden! A farewell meal before everyone disperses for the holidays! We are so thankful to have such a great group behind us as we go to Tanzania! What a great time with good friends and good food! All of you, thank you for your kind encouragement, support and your ongoing prayers. You are wonderful!

And thank you also to all those at the Aldermaston Toddler Group who donated to our Africa Fund this morning and found new homes for our toys and games! Thank you, Karen! (and please pass this on!)

It is so strange at the moment, realising that this is the beginning of all the goodbyes. Today we had the last violin lesson, next it is the last ballet and tap lesson! And this week we finish at Amisadai's school and Louisa's playschool. And this reminds me, we are having a big farewell picnic on Tadley Green on Tuesday, August 27th for all Amisadai and Louisa's friends (and their families). Just please bring some food and we'll lay it out in the Memorial Hall and then share it together! We'll start with a Scavenger Hunt at 12pm. Please let us know if you are able to come! I am terrible with goodbyes and think I should probably invest in some waterproof mascara very soon! It is never easy to say goodbye, but it does so make me appreciate all the more how much it means to have friends and family. It means so much! How much worse it would be to have no one to miss!
