Good-bye to the playgroup

August 10, 2006

Today the playgroup had a good-bye party for us. It was a bittersweet gathering for me. Fun to see folks I haven't seen in awhile (we haven't been able to attend many playgroup events because of Camille's nap schedule) and fun to meet some new families, but sad to say good-bye. I started the playgroup in 2004 and it has grown from a small group to a large and lively one of 80 families. I started the group because there weren't many activities for younger kids and I wanted to meet other parents who were interested in exploring the island. We started by meeting in each other's homes and quickly outgrew those spaces so we started alternating meetings at a chapel nursery room with outings to local parks, beaches, and cultural events. It was important to me that the group be open to anyone who was interested in joining regardless of rank or service and it has been a great way to meet some wonderful new friends. Today it was great to see that the group is continuing to thrive and continuing to welcome new members. Thanks to all of the families who have helped the playgroup so much fun.

We all had a good laugh because Camille stuck her foot right in the cake (see photo on the left)!

It's awesome that you did this, but sad that you will have to say goodbye.
