Penny's best friend from daycare, Samuel left last Thursday to go and live on the family farm in NSW. Before they left, Sam, his sister, Jessica and mum, Merissa spent the morning with us. We were very thankful to be home from our holiday before they departed. The children enjoyed a party morning tea as an early celebration of Penny's birthday. Sam gave Penny a pretty silver and pink charm bracelet and ring which was the perfect present for our girlie girl. The children had fun playing outside together blowing bubbles, digging in the sandpit and making play dough cookies. We then enjoyed lunch together followed by cuddles all round on their departure. I think the Mums were sadder than the kids! Penny felt a little lost without her mate at daycare on Friday but the teachers were very aware of this and gave her plenty of distracting activities and cuddles. Penny tells us that she loves Sammy and she is going to marry him and live on the farm but of course Mummy has to come too! We hope to see Sam and his lovely family again when they visit us or when we venture back down to NSW again.
