Wonderful day gone bad (AWFUL)

Yesterday began as a wonderful day in the Robinson house. Stacy worked, (always good news) and Micah and I went to a Meet and Greet. I have recently joined a group called Gwinnett Area Mommies. I thought it would be a good way of making some new friends with children Micah's age. The Meet and Greet was in Lawrenceville and there was a good turn out. The most exciting thing for me was that there were BOYS. It seems like most of the people that I know have girls, and I really wanted Micah to have some little boy friends. There were several boys around the age of 2 that Micah "played with." He loved the slide, toys, trucks, and I loved watching him interact with other children that weren't family members. There were a lot of Very nice ladies there that may end up being friends forever. I love to meet new people! So far the morning was going great. After our morning fun we decided that we'd surprise Stacy at work. We stopped by and surprised (scared) him, visited, and began our trek home. The afternoon was pretty uneventful, I went to the gym and then it was supper time.
Our bread man, produce man, best neighbor in the Whole wide world Cassio came over with our weekly delivery last night. I had recently learned (through Cassio's 6 year old daughter) that he was about to take a trip to Brazil (where his family is originally from) to do a job. I was told that he would be gone until December. But to make a long story short (I'm sick at my stomach as I write this) My bestest, favorite neighbors will soon be moving back to Brazil. Cassio has accepted a job and is leaving in 2 weeks. Luce and the children will remain here until December...then they'll be following. I am so sad! Who would have ever thought that I would be so sad over loosing a neighbor. But this family is not just our neighbor, but they are our friends. They have been wonderful to us for the 4 years that they've been here. I hope to be this kind to my neighbors as they have been to us. We will miss them a lot.

I mean Cassio even took me and Stacy to the airport EARLY in the morning! What great people they are... fun people, sweet people to talk with, great kids to play with, and yummy food.
