This last week has been full of big endings. An end-of-the (school) year ladies Bible study breakfast, a men’s breakfast and hike, a youth club BBQ (what would be called a ‘cookout’ in America – there is no pulled pork at an Irish BBQ), a special service at church where the kids shared what they have learned over the year, and lots of goodbyes. Now the focus at our house is packing to leave for America on Friday, and cleaning to have our house ready for guests who will stay here while we’re gone.
