We just got back from Talia & Kaisa’s goodbye party . . . and it was a HUGE success. The girls invited their respective classes, plus a few other friends from their various activities to join them at the gymnastics club – and ended up with more than 30 kids there to have fun and to say good-bye. The coaches were terrific (as always) and the kids had an absolute blast. We had asked friends to bring a photo or a drawing or a note, and now the girls have a friendship album full of memories to take with them to Calgary. Hopefully it’ll make their good-byes just a little bit easier when it’s time to go . . .
